ST. LOUIS — A patient is suing Barnes-Jewish Hospital, Washington University, Washington University Medical Center and numerous other doctors and health care providers over alleged negligence stemming from his medical care.
Steven Norbury filed a complaint on Oct. 18 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against the defendants, alleging that the health care providers failed to provide adequate medical care and treatment.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that as a result of the defendants' actions, he has suffered paralysis, pain and suffering, infections, multiple medical and hospitalization expenses, loss of ability to enjoy life and loss of income. The plaintiff holds Barnes-Jewish Hospital, Washington University, Washington University Medical Center and others responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to administer proper antibiotic treatment and released him despite his worsening neurological signs, evidence of back infection and symptoms.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages of more than $25,000, plus costs of this action and any further relief the court deems appropriate. He is represented by Bill T. Walker of the Law Offices of Bill T. Walker in Granite City, Ill., and James E. Parrot of James E. Parrot Law Office in St. Louis.
