LOGAN—A Logan County resident is suing a dermatologist and his business, alleging medical malpractice when a 2013 treatment procedure led to unanticipated injuries from a fall.
Jarron Gore filed a complaint against Beckley Dermatology, doing business as Dermatology Associates and Surgery Center, in Logan Circuit Court on June 18, asserting negligence in August 2013 when he sought treatment.
According to the filing, Gore presented to the defendant to have a spot or lesion removed from his hand on Aug. 19, 2013. The suit states that when the patient informed the nursing staff that he was feeling light-headed following the procedure, he was left unattended on a bed in the treatment room and subsequently fell off the examination table, sustaining further injuries.
The suit states that the defendant failed to properly monitor the plaintiff to ensure his safety “despite having informed the defendant that he thought he may pass out.” Gore contends that the defendant failed to exercise care and that his injuries were due to the staff’s negligence. He alleges permanent and substantial physical deformity, mental anguish, emotional distress, medical bills, and loss of income while recuperating.
Gore seeks compensatory damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorneys’ fees, and costs.
The plaintiff is represented by Robert Kuenzel of Kuenzel & Associates of Chapmanville. The case has been assigned to Judge Roger L. Perry.
Logan Circuit Court case number 15-C-184.
