CHARLESTON — A husband is suing health care providers citing alleged negligence.
Alexander Righter Conner filed a complaint in Kanawha Circuit Court against Laboratory Corporation of American Holdings, Anne Betts Carpenter, M.D., Terri Hudak and Kathryn A. Vanhoose alleging that they were negligent in providing the applicable standards of medical care in the care and treatment of his wife, Crystal Faye Cash.
According to the complaint, Conner alleges that on Oct. 15, 2014, the defendants were provided tissue samples of Crystal Faye Cash for laboratory testing but the test results were improperly interpreted resulting in failure to diagnose her cervical cancer. She died on Sept. 9, 2016.
The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly were negligent in failing to timely and properly perform tests and interpret the results.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory damages allowable under the Medical Professional Liability Act, punitive damages, pre- and post-judgment cost, allowable fees and other relief he is entitled to receive. He is represented by Richard D. Lindsay and Woody A. Trent of Tabor Lindsay & Associates in Charleston.
