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 activities.
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.
