According to an ex-security guard, a misdiagnosis by an emergency room physician left him a quadriplegic. The man is claiming that he is entitled to over $20 million in damages. The case has been filed against Good Samaritan Hospital by Kyrus Rogers.
According to the lawsuit, Dr. Brian Harris failed to diagnose and treat the man when he arrived at the hospital in pain. In May 2012, Rogers collapsed in his driveway. He was in good health at the time, and he was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital for assistance. Harris treated Rogers for stress and muscle aches rather than conducting any type of diagnostic imaging. Rogers was sent home with medication.
Within just 30 days of seeking treatment, Rogers’ condition worsened and he was left a quadriplegic. Rogers now lives with his mother who has become his caregiver. Although Harris was named in the original lawsuit, his name has been dropped from the case.
