HUNTINGTON — A patient is suing a Huntington health care provider, alleging negligence led to the plaintiff requiring an amputated leg.
John Curtis filed a complaint March 15 in Cabell Circuit Court against Huntington Health and Rehabilitation Center and Seventeenth Street Associates LLC, alleging they failed to exercise the degree of care required of a reasonably competent health care providers.
According to the complaint, in March 2015, Curtis was a patient at the defendants' facility for evaluation and treatment of hypotension.

Curtis seeks trial by jury, damages adequate to fully compensate him for his injuries and damages, plus interest and costs of court. He is represented by attorney Larry O. Ford of Meyer Ford & Glasser PLLC in Charleston.
