ORLANDO — An Orange County wife and husband are suing Orlando medical services providers, alleging loss of consortium and negligence.
Denita Henry and Jerome Clark filed a complaint Sept. 20 in Orange County Circuit Court against Orlando Health Inc., doing business as Orlando Regional Medical Center, Dr. Perry Dhaliwal, Dr. Kelvin S. Wilson and the University of Florida Board of Trustees, alleging they breached the professional standards of care and treatment.
According to the complaint, on Feb. 3, 2016, Dhaliwai and Wilson performed lumbar surgery on Henry at Orlando Regional Medical Center. The suit says due to the doctors' negligence, Henry sustained serious injuries and resulting pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, medical expenses, loss of earnings and aggravation of a previous existing condition.
Additionally, the lawsuit states, Clark, her husband and co-plaintiff, has been deprived of his wife's services, care, companionship and consortium.
The plaintiffs allege the defendants failed to perform complete examinations on Henry, failed to properly monitor a life-threatening underlying condition, failed to inform the patient and family of her condition in a timely fashion, and failed to properly assess, diagnose and treat Henry according to standard.
Henry and Clark seek trial by jury, compensatory damages of more than $15,000, plus costs of suit. They are represented by attorney Darryn L. Silverstein of Silverstein, Silverstein & Silverstein PA in Aventura.
