CHARLESTON — A Jackson County couple is suing medical care providers, alleging their negligence led to suffering for the wife.
Ashley Dunkle and Kyle Dunkle filed a lawsuit Sept. 16 in Kanawha Circuit Court against Dr. Sebastian Francis, Greenbrier Emergency Services Inc. Dr. Piayon Kobbah and New Century Emergency Physicians of West Virginia Inc., alleging the defendants carelessly deviated from the standard medical care and treatment expected from professionals.
According to the complaint, Ashley Dunkle sought medical treatment from the defendants Aug. 26-27, 2014, in Kanawha County. As a result of the defendants' negligence, the suit says, Dunkle's condition was misdiagnosed and she suffered extreme pain and suffering, infection, debilitating injuries, loss of income and medical expenses.
The plaintiffs allege the defendants failed to provide adequate and timely medical treatment and intervention to Ashley Dunkle.
The Dunkles seek trial by jury, judgment in excess of the minimum requirements of the court and all other relief as is proper. They are represented by attorneys Tony L. O'Dell and Cheryl A. Fisher of Tiano O'Dell PLLC in Charleston.
