League City resident sues over MRSA infection
A League City veterinary assistant is suing a River Oaks veterinary group after, she says, she contracted a serious disease while working with a sick animal.
League City resident Lori Marsh filed a lawsuit on April 4 in the Harris County District Court against Gulf Coast Veterinary Internists of River Oaks, alleging negligence.
Marsh says that she contracted a dangerous infection, known as MRSA, because her employee, Gulf Coast Veterinary Internists did not warn her that she would be caring for an MRSA-infected animal. Marsh claims that contracting this disease while on the job has physically impaired her for the rest of her life.
Marsh is seeking all damages to which she is entitled and court costs. She is being represented in the case by Houston attorney C. Michael Davis.
Harris County District Court Case No. 2011-20670.
