Suffer in silence?

It's a winding, two-hour drive from Huntington to Fayetteville, but for fans of whitewater rafting and mountain biking, the trek is well worth it. The town is also the home of the New River Clinic, where a person can seek treatment for a variety of health problems. A man from nearby Beckley went to the clinic a couple of years ago with itching, swelling and redness in his foreskin.

After diagnosis, treatment and a circumcision that summer, the man recently filed a medical malpractice lawsuit alleging that he received substandard care from a clinic doctor before, during and after the procedure.


The Beckley man and his wife filed the legal claim, alleging that his penis became infected after the procedure, resulting in injuries, pain, mental anguish and a diminishment of his ability to enjoy life.

You can probably imagine that this is not a lawsuit a person would be eager to file. The information is public and might subject him to ridicule. We do not know the details of this case. But if you have suffered pain and injury due to medical malpractice, you know there's no humor to be found in your suffering.

Medical malpractice victims not only must deal with physical pain and emotional grief, but they are often forced to lose wages because of their injuries. On top of all of that, they are typically presented with enormous medical bills, adding financial insult to their injuries.

Those who must deal with the difficult complications caused by a negligent doctor, nurse, clinic or hospital staff are left with few options. They can suffer quietly and somehow deal with lost pay and their bills, or they speak with a Huntington attorney experienced in medical malpractice litigation. A lawyer who knows this complex area of law can assess your circumstances and help you pursue maximum compensation for damages.
