BEAUMONT – A motion for default judgment was recently filed in a medical malpractice lawsuit against two Port Arthur physicians who are accused of failing to perform an adequate tubal ligation.
Seeking up to $1 million in damages, Natasha Nicole-Desiron McCray filed suit against Dr. Charles Moses and Dr. Frank Krull on Oct. 3 in Jefferson County District Court.
According to the complaint, Moses performed a cesarean section and permanent elective sterilization on the plaintiff in October 2016, and Krull performed a pathology confirming two tubal segments. She alleges on Jan. 19 she sought medical attention from her primary care physician because of subchorionic hemorrhaging and was informed she was pregnant. She later had a second procedure to have tubal ligation done.
The plaintiff holds Moses and Krull responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to perform the necessary procedure in tubal ligation and failed to properly monitor and assess her condition.
On Nov. 20, the plaintiff filed a motion for default judgment, stating that Moses has failed to respond to the lawsuit, court records show.
The plaintiff is represented by Brian D. Sutton of Sutton & Jacobs LLP in Beaumont.
