Former Miami Dolphin Wins $11.5 Million Medical Malpractice Lawsuit
South Florida News reports that former wide receiver for the Miami Dolphins, O. J. McDuffie, has been awarded $11.5 million against the team’s doctor over a career-ending toe injury.
McDuffie claimed the former team doctor, Dr. John Uribe, was guilty of malpractice and gross negligence in the treatment of an injury to his big toe in 1999. This injury brought an early end to his career. An MRI showed the injury was serious, but the Dolphins told him at the time the exam was inconclusive. He has since undergone three surgeries on the toe.
