Malpractice Suit Against Rockland Podiatrist

According to the results of a court hearing a podiatrist with offices in Rockland County has been ordered to pay $1.4 million in damages for malpractice. In 2010 Ira Bernstein completed surgery on a 12-year old girl who was left with a deformity in her foot and excessive pain after Bernstein apparently fused her growth plates together. The girl’s lawyer stated that Bernstein failed to list the risks and performed the surgery improperly, leading the jury to award the $1.4 million. Less than a year ago a jury awarded $775,000 to a patient in a malpractice suit, who was left with pain from a surgery done by the podiatrist.
