South African comedian Trevor Noah has filed a lawsuit against his orthopedic surgeon Dr. Riley Williams III, and the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City over a botched surgery.
According to the lawsuit filed by Justin Blitz of Schulman Blitz LLP, it claims that Noah suffered from ‘serious personal injury’ which is ‘permanent, severe and grievous’.
The suit also states that the accused failed ‘to prescient proper medications’ and also failed to ‘discontinue certain prescription medications.”
Noah also accuses the doctor of failing ‘to use proper tests and examinations in order to diagnose the conditions from which Noah was suffering.”
The injuries have rendered Noah sick, sore lame and disabled.
The Daily Show host also alleged that the accused failed to inform him of the risks, hazards and alternatives to the treatment. Noah had not commented on the situation and it still remains unclear on which type of surgery he received.
