Possible Medical Malpractice Case for the Bengals

Rashad Jeanty, a former linebacker with the Cincinnati Bengals, fractured his left fibula on January 9, 2010, in a playoff game against the New York Jets. The Bengals medical staff informed Jeanty that he did not need surgery for his injury. Jeanty visited the Miami Dolphins as a restricted free agent and was informed that he required major surgery in order to stabilize his leg. The Dolphins were uninterested in Jeanty due to his injury.

Jeanty underwent the surgery for his leg and was thought to be placed on the reserve list for the Bengals. However, due to his injury, the Bengals cut him from the roster even though Jeanty was an extremely valuable player for the team and had won the Ed Block Courage award in 2008.

The Bengals medical staff misdiagnosed Jeanty’s injury and did not get him the medical attention he needed to properly recover from the fracture. The misdiagnoses cost him potential employment in the form a place on the Miami Dolphins roster.

Medical malpractice is the misdiagnoses or mistreatment of an injury or health condition by a medical professional. The Bengals medical staff had a duty and a responsibility to correctly diagnose Jeanty and to get him further medical attention for his injury.
