Podiatrist case yields $3.5 million verdict

A Clifton Forge woman who claimed that her bunionectomy led to permanent, disabling pain and the amputation of her toes won a $3.5 million verdict from a Roanoke jury on Friday. With the cap on medical malpractice damages, the award would be reduced to $1.65 million. Attorney Patrick T. Fennell represented the plaintiff in the 4-day trial. Defense counsel Paul Kuhnel says that there is no decision yet on an appeal. The defendant is Troutville podiatrist Jennifer K. Feeny.
