CHARLESTON — An inmate is suing Primecare Medical of West Virginia Inc., et al, medical care providers and correction officers, citing alleged intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence.
Zach Damron filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against the defendants alleging that they violated the West Virginia Regional Jail and Correctional Facility Authority policies.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Oct. 5, 2016, he was incarcerated at Western Regional Jail when he was assaulted by another inmate. As a result of defendants' negligence, he suffered permanent physical harm and injury, including but not limited to a broken jaw. The plaintiff holds Primecare Medical of West Virginia Inc., et al responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide timely medical care even after learning he suffered a broken jaw.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory and punitive damages, attorney's fees, costs, and such other just and equitable relief. He is represented by Paul M. Sroebel of Stroebel & Johnson PLLC in Charleston.
