BECKLEY - A couple are suing over claims that a doctor provided inadequate medical care.

Glenn and Betty Pennington filed a lawsuit March 5 in the Circuit Court of Raleigh County against Dr. Matthew K. Nelson, citing negligence.

The Penningtons allege that Dr. Nelson negligently failed to suggest more conservative measures before he performed Glenn's shoulder surgery on March 21, 2011. As a result of the surgery, Glenn suffered further injury to his shoulder which resulted in additional surgeries, according to the complaint.

The Pennington's are seeking an undisclosed amount of damages.

They are being represented by Charleston attorneys Robert V. Berthold and Christina L. Smith.

Circuit Court of Raleigh County Case No. 13-C-186.
