HUNTINGTON — A Milton woman is suing a university board, citing alleged insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries.
Jessica Farley, individually and as next friend of Carlie Casey, an infant filed a complaint on June 8, in Cabell Circuit Court against Marshall University Board of Governors, alleging that its employees negligently deviated from the standards of care in treating Casey.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that Casey has suffered and will continue to suffer needless physical and mental pain and has incurred and will continue to incur medical expenses following a fracture in her left index finger. The plaintiff holds Marshall University Board of Governors responsible because the defendant's employees allegedly failed to properly perform an open reduction internal fixation and properly follow up on dressing to Casey's finger.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensation for all damages sustained by plaintiff and the minor child, Carlie Casey. She is represented by Debra A. Nelson of The Nelson Law Firm LLC in Cincinnati, Ohio.
