Man blames MedExpress Urgent Care, claims it caused injuries

HUNTINGTON – A man is suing MedExpress Urgent Care Inc.-West Virginia after he claims it caused him injuries while he was in its care.

On Feb. 15, 2011, Robert Wayne Hager became a patient of MedExpress for treatment of a jagged laceration/tear near his rectum sustained after being impaled by a prong, according to a complaint filed Feb. 4 in Cabell Circuit Court.

Hager claims the defendant’s agents, servants and employees negligently rendered healthcare services to him, which caused significant personal injuries and damages.

MedExpress deviated from the standard of care by failing to exercise a degree of care or the skill and learning required, according to the suit.

Hager claims the defendant’s actions deprived him of a chance of recovery or increased the risk of harm to him.

If MedExpress had followed the accepted standard of care it would have resulted in a greater than 25 percent chance that Hager would have had an improved recovery, according to the suit.

Hager is seeking compensatory damages with pre- and post-judgment interest. He is being represented by Bert Ketchum and Larry A. Bailey.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge F. Jane Hustead.

Cabell Circuit Court case number: 13-C-84
