Physician in SC Sues Doctors for Malpractice
A physician in Charleston, SC, recently filed a suit against two doctors at Thomas Memorial Hospital.
The suit accuses the doctors of improper treatment and negligence in regards to an abdominal surgery they performed on him.
Dr. Jan H. Cunningham and his wife, Lynn, filed the suit last week against Dr. Hossam Tarakji and Dr. Richard Fogle.
The suit claims that the hospital and its physicians failed to give him proper and safe medical care during his treatment after surgery.
After his surgery, Cunningham reportedly developed an infection and as a result endured severe abdominal pain and overwhelming septic shock.
Plaintiffs Seeks Compensation
According to court papers, Cunningham’s condition was so severe that he was forced to undergo additional surgeries.
Cunningham is reportedly now permanently disfigured and has suffered a loss of earnings.
The couple is seeking compensation for the medical bills they incurred and the emotional distress they have suffered.
