Keri Grenier of our Kelowna office represents Ms. Britney Stewart, whose husband, Josh Wakely, died of necrotizing fasciitis (commonly known as flesh-eating disease) after seeking medical attention in Fort St. John on three separate occasions. Tragically, by the time the infection was correctly diagnosed, it was too late to save the life of Ms. Stewart’s husband and father to their young son.
The allegation is that had the doctors and nurses who saw Mr. Wakely taken the steps that they should have over the course of his three visits to the ER, Mr. Wakely would still be alive. In short, the lawsuit claims that their negligence caused or contributed to his untimely death and the subsequent losses to his family as a husband, father and provider.
