According to a report by The Star-Ledger, Yankees all star player Alex Rodriguez, also known as “A-Rod,” has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against team doctor Chris Ahmad and New York Presbyterian-Columbia Medical Center. This is just one of many new developments for the prodigious batter who is currently embroiled in a performance-enhancing drug scandal and another lawsuit with Major League Baseball (MLB).
The lawsuit alleges Ahmad failed to inform Rodriguez of a superior labral tear at the left hip after an MRI examination was conducted on October 11, 2012. Rodriguez was allowed to continue playing during playoffs, which, according to the suit, caused him further injury, leading to additional costly surgeries.
This suit and the suit against the MLB were both filed in New York State Supreme Court. The Yankees were not identified as a liable party in either case.
If you are currently suffering the devastating effects of misdiagnosis or another form of medical malpractice, you should consult with an attorney and file a lawsuit as soon as possible. Under Nebraska Revised Statute 25-222, the statute of limitations in Nebraska for filing a medical malpractice claim is two years. Anyone who has become the victim of such an incident must file their claim during this time, or will be unable to pursue compensation in the future.
