SACRAMENTO — A Solano County patient is suing the United States, alleging negligent infliction of emotional distress.
Katie Feeney filed a complaint Nov. 1 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against the United States of America and Does 1-100, alleging they failed to exercise standard care and skill required of medical providers and facilities.
According to the complaint, on Oct. 21, 2014, at David Grant U.S. Air Force Medical Center in Fairfield, California, Feeney sustained severe injuries and damages, including leg amputation, paralysis, colostomy and the death of her infant son while in the womb. The suit says Feeney was deprived of wages and future income, incurred medical expenses, and suffered physical pain, mental and emotional anguish, as a result of the negligent acts of the U.S. Air Force in the diagnosis, treatment and care of the plaintiff.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to be diligent in the care and treatment of Feeney, caused her great physical harm and mental pain and suffering, and forced Feeney to retain legal counsel to protect her rights.
Feeney seeks trial by jury, general and special damages, costs of suit, interest and all other relief the court deems just. She is represented by attorney Blake P. Bostwick of Bostwick & Peterson LLP in Mill Valley.
