Glenford Turner, et. al v. United States of America (filed January 12, 2018 — United District Court of Connecticut) Faxon Law Group filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against the United States of America following the disturbing discovery of a scalpel abandoned inside a veteran’s body four years ago at the West Haven VA. On March 29, 2017, Glenford Turner, a 61-year-old United States Army veteran, currently residing in Bridgeport, CT, reported to VA Connecticut Healthcare System, West Haven Campus, for a scheduled MRI after experiencing a recent episode of dizziness and long-term abdominal pains. The imaging study was abruptly halted when Mr. Turner began to experience severe, worsened abdominal pain. X-Rays performed thereafter revealed the presence of an abandoned scalpel inside Mr. Turner’s body. Doctors confirmed that is was the scalpel knife used during Turner’s radical prostatectomy—performed four years earlier at the West Haven VA—on August 30, 2013. In April of 2017, Turner was forced to undergo another surgery, with the attendant serious anesthesia risks—to remove the dangerous instrument parked near his stomach and intestines. Immediately following the filing of this lawsuit, the X-ray photo of our plaintiff’s abdomen drew international attention. Click here for news coverage and updates.

How to Use Case Builder

Case Builder contains two helpful categories: cases we are working on now and our past results. Case Builder is a novel concept. Our web designer said we should have this information fixed in a web page. We disagreed—thinking that just like our practice is always changing the case builder should be an ever-changing description of where we are right now—not last month or a year ago.
