Woman claims doctor committed medical negligence during procedure

When a patient undergoes a surgical procedure, they expect that the medical professionals who are performing the surgery will act properly during the procedure. When a medical professional fails to live up to this expectation and commits medical negligence while providing a patient with surgical care, it can be very harmful to the patient.

Recently, in West Virginia, a case has arisen involving a surgery and allegations of medical negligence. The case involves a woman from Ohio who reportedly underwent a shoulder arthroplasty in West Virginia in January 2010.

It has been alleged that medical negligence occurred during this surgical procedure. Specifically, the woman alleges that the doctor who performed this surgery negligently left her arm in an incorrect angle during the procedure.

The woman claims that this alleged negligence caused her to suffer several harms, including a deformity in her arm and a reduction in the range of motion of her arm.

A medical negligence lawsuit has been brought by the woman in a court in West Virginia against the above-mentioned doctor in connection to these allegations. It has been reported that compensatory damages are being sought in this lawsuit.

As the allegations in this case underscore, patients can suffer a variety of harms when medical professionals commit negligence while providing them with surgical care. Thus, one hopes that all medical professionals make sure to not act negligently during the performance of surgeries on patients. No patient should have to experience harm because a medical professional failed to act properly.
