HUNTINGTON -- A man is suing University Physicians & Surgeons and the Marshall University Board of Governors after he claims they are responsible for his wife's death.
Dr. David A. Denning was also named as a defendant in the suit.
On Nov. 12, 2009, Marie C. Miller was admitted to Cabell Huntington Hospital for an exploratory laparotomy and small bowel resection to repair a small bowel fistula, according to a complaint filed Nov. 8 in Cabell Circuit Court.
Edward Miller claims during the course of the procedure, Denning lacerated the left lower lobe of Marie Miller's liver.
Marie Miller died Nov. 16, 2009, as a result of Denning's medical negligence, according to the suit.
Edward Miller claims the defendants derived from the applicable standard of care by failing to properly repair, treat and monitor Marie Miller's liver laceration.
Edward Miller is seeking compensatory damages. He is being represented by C. Benjamin Salango and J.B. Akers.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge F. Jane Hustead.
