HOUSTON – A Houston woman alleges she sustained nerve damage in her hand because of the negligence of a medical clinic.
Kimberly Spann filed a complaint on Nov. 12 in the Harris County District Court against Concentra Medical Clinic alleging medical negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 24, 2016, she was evaluated and diagnosed with varicella (chicken pox) at defendant's Concentra Urgent Care and was administered an injection. She alleges the defendant's phlebotomist was unable to draw blood after a few attempts and that she experienced pain and swelling in her hand and arm afterward.
The plaintiff alleges the pain persisted, she was diagnosed with left radial neuritis in May 2017, and she was cleared for surgery in March.
The plaintiff holds Concentra Medical Clinic responsible because the defendant's phlebotomist negligently punctured her hand, causing nerve damage.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of more than $200,000 but less than $1 million and such other relief to which she is entitled. She is represented by Nikolas A. Spencer of Spencer & Associates PLLC in Houston.
