BELLEVILLE—A patient is suing healthcare providers after his fracture allegedly did not heal properly.

Gregory J. Touchette filed a complaint on Nov. 13 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Touchette Regional Hospital Inc. and Daniel Schwarze MD, alleging they failed to apply the skill and care ordinarily used by well-qualified health care providers.

According to the complaint, the defendants provided medical services to the plaintiff on Aug. 11, 2016. Touchette claims the defendants failed to reduce a fracture of the distal end of the right radius and failed to obtain proper alignment within the standard of care. 

As a result, the plaintiff claims he suffered a malunion and malaligned right wrist, which resulted in pain and suffering, medical expenses and impaired earning capacity. 

Touchette requests a trial by jury and seeks damages of more than $50,000, plus costs. He is represented by Joseph A. Bartholomew of Cook, Bartholomew, Shevlin & Cook LLP in Belleville.
