MOUNDSVILLE - A Marshall County woman filed a wrongful death suit on behalf of a woman who died while receiving medical care, seeking $125,000 for the estate.
Sarina L. Davis filed the suit on behalf of Elizabeth K. Westen in Marshall Circuit Court against Mound View Health Care Inc.
According to the suit, Westen was in a health care facility until March 21, 2003, when she was transported to Reynolds Memorial Hospital for medical care. While at the hospital, she was diagnosed with a fractured femur, which required surgery and hospitalization.
However, Davis claims Westen was neglected under the care, control and supervision of the hospital. She suffered physical pain and suffering and physical and emotional distress prior to her death on March 23, 2003.
In the five-count suit, Davis seeks $125,000 in damages to cover the expenses for the estate.
Attorney Ronald Kasserman is representing Davis.
