Trevor Noah has sued a New York City hospital and doctor after they allegedly botched a surgery performed on him last year.
Noah sued Dr. Riley J. Williams III and the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan. He was a patient there between Aug. 25, 2020, and Dec. 17, 2020, and had the surgery in question on Nov. 23, 2020.
Dr Williams specializes in knee and elbow surgery, MTO News confirmed.
In the court docs, he says the doctors “were negligent and careless in failing to treat and care for [him] in a careful and skillful manner.” Noah also accuses them of “failing to use approved methods in general use in the care and treatment.”
He said he suffered “serious personal injury” after his surgery.
He also writes he “sustained severe and painful personal injuries; sustained severe nervous shock, mental anguish, severe emotional distress and great physical pain; was confined to bed and home for a long period of time; was compelled to undergo hospital and medical aid, treatment and attention; has suffered loss of enjoyment of life; was prevented from engaging in his usual occupation for a long period of time; and since some of his injuries are of a permanent nature, he will continue to suffer similar damages in the future.”
