CHARLESTON — A Putnam County man is suing a podiatrist, citing alleged negligence.
Ronald A. McVey filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Carrie P. Gosselink DPM alleging that she failed to exercise that degree of care, skill and learning expected of a reasonable, prudent podiatrist.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 12, 2016, he underwent a surgical procedure on his right foot performed by the defendant. As a result of her failures, he suffers continuous, enormous pain and suffering, motion loss, deformation and permanent damage. He had to undergo a salvage procedure in February 2018. The plaintiff holds Carrie P. Gosselink DPM responsible because she allegedly negligently employed poor surgical technique and failed to provide postoperative care when she began to notice that there was poor healing.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory and punitive damages, with interest, and such other relief that the jury may find just and fair. He is represented by Mark R. Staun of Hartley Law Group PLLC in Charleston and John W. Alderman III of Law Offices of John W. Alderman III in Charleston.
