Bret “Hitman” Hart has filed a $1-million lawsuit over a botched wrist surgery that has left him unable to use his right thumb and index finger. According to The Calgary Sun, Hart underwent the surgery with Dr. Justin Yeung on November 23rd 2015. The surgery was intended to deal with an injury he had endured back in 1981, however, when Hart returned to see Yeung six weeks later, he indicated that he couldn’t function his right thumb and index finger. Yeung advised him to be patient, but the problems persisted well into 2016.
The lawsuit claims:
“The defendants were negligent, breached the duties of care they owed to Mr. Hart and breached their agreement with him. He is unable to participate in his previous recreational and social activities,” the lawsuit states about Hart’s current limitations. “He is unable to use his right hand to pick up and functionally use objects, including pens, pencils, eating utensils and tools.”
