The Republican Herald reports that a man in Luzerne County who claimed that he contracted a bone infection in his left thumb is sorely disappointed. The jury in Schuylkill County ruled that Mr. Dennis J. Kowalick should receive nothing from his medical malpractice lawsuit. Mr. Kowalick claims that the medical malpractice occurred back in 2002. The lawsuit was filed on April 26, 2004. Any PA personal injury attorney would tell you that this case is just plain strange.
The Republican Herald reports that Mr. Kowalick came into the Ashland Regional Medical Center (now the Saint Catherine Medical Center Fountain Springs) in 2002 with a damaged thumb. Apparently, someone had bitten his left thumb.
