AddThis Social Bookmark Button

A Bronx woman has been awarded $60 million in damages in her medical malpractice case against a Queens County plastic surgeon.   The plaintiff in the case, Allison Hugh, had claimed that Ferdinand A. Ofodile, M.D., botched her thigh lift procedure.

Ms. Hugh was represented by Andres F. Alonso, a partner in the law firm of Parker Waichman LLP.  Mr. Alonso has consistently obtained large verdicts and multi-million dollar settlements on behalf of his clients.

Parker Waichman LLP is a leading national law firm concentrating primarily with negligence and personal injury matters, mass tort, pharmaceutical, medical device, products liability, construction and consumer litigation. The firm has offices in New York, New Jersey and Florida, and represents plaintiffs nationwide.

Hugh’s lawsuit alleged that the thigh lift procedure performed by Ferdinand A. Ofodile, M.D. caused significant and permanent injury and deformity to the labia of her vagina which  cannot be surgically corrected.   The complaint alleged Dr. Ofodile failed to inform and provide Ms. Hugh with informed consent and failed to inform her of the risks involved in this type of procedure, including the risk of vaginal opening and deformity. Dr. Ofodile also failed to use proper surgical techniques by leaving too much tension in the skin of her groin area, according to the lawsuit.

A Bronx  jury found that Dr. Ofodile failed to appropriately advise Ms. Hugh about the risks of this type of procedure. It also found that  he deviated from good and accepted medical practices in his surgical technique.

Ms. Hugh was awarded $10 million for past  pain and suffering, and $50 million for future pain and suffering.
