WHEELING – A Ohio County man says his surgeon allegedly
mishandled an operation to install a prosthetic hip, causing two years of
unnecessary pain and suffering.
Thomas D. Moore filed a lawsuit May 13 in Ohio Circuit Court
against Dr. Mary M. Haus, alleging medical malpractice.
According to the complaint, Moore underwent a hip
replacement operation performed by Haus on Jan. 21, 2014. The suit says Haus incorrectly
installed components of the prosthetic hip and failed to test the implant after
surgery, despite Moore’s ongoing complaints. As a result, the plaintiff claims
he endured pain and suffering, incurred expenses for subsequent medical care
and surgeries, and a reduction in ability to enjoy life and perform his usual
Moore seeks a jury trial, compensatory damages in an amount
to be determined at trial, interest and litigation costs. He is represented by
attorney C. Richard Wilson of the Wilson Law Offices in Moundsville.
Judge James P. Mazzone is assigned to the case.
