“Decedent was in so extreme an amount of pain that he was incapable of sitting up or talking,” the lawsuit said.
Harper died Feb. 16 from the infections and “conditions from which he suffered,” the lawsuit said.
The lawsuit alleges that the Dallas VA Medical Center was negligent in failing to properly diagnose and treat Harper.
Harper was “industrious and energetic” and a “caretaker of the family,” Truelove said in her lawsuit. His obituary said he was a self-employed painter.
“Mr. Harper loved his family and taking them on trips around the country giving them many fond memories,” the obituary said.
