PRINCETON — A married couple's lawsuit accuses Bluefield Clinic Company LLC and Gary McCarthy, M.D., of alleged negligence and medical malpractice.
Wanda Conner and Johnny Conner filed a complaint on June 6 in Mercer Circuit Court against the defendants, alleging that they deviated from the appropriate standard of medical care.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that plaintiff Wanda Conner has suffered temporary and permanent injuries to her left hip, physical pain, emotional and mental trauma, physical trauma, medical expenses, embarrassment and humiliation. Plaintiff Johnny Conner has been deprived of loss of society, companionship and consortium, the suit says. The plaintiffs hold the defendants responsible because they allegedly failed to refer plaintiff Wanda Conner in a timely fashion for appropriate diagnosis, failed to diagnose and properly treat her infection in a timely fashion, and failed to obtain informed consent.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek compensation for all damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorneys' fees and for such other relief as may be proper under the law. They are represented by Tony L. O'Dell and Cheryl A. Fisher of Tiano O'Dell PLLC in Charleston.
