*After Powell’s 7-year-old son Wesley began having seizures, he was seen by Dr. Ventosa and diagnosed with Petite Mal Epilepsy for which he was given Lamictal, the suit says. No other treatment was ordered and the seizures continued, the suit says. Wesley’s father then took him to Ohio Valley Medical Center where an MRI showed a large brain tumor, the suit says. He underwent surgery for the tumor removal that left him paralyzed and in a wheelchair, the suit says. Cinthia Powell is seeking judgment for injuries and damages.
