CALIFORNIA — An individual is suing Dameron Hospital and DOES 1 through 30, citing alleged insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries and negligence under the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA).
Brian Traynor filed a complaint on Oct. 18, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against the defendants alleging that they failed to properly examine plaintiff's condition.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, in October 2014, he sustained severe physical injuries including being paralyzed due to the delay of the diagnosis of his condition. The plaintiff holds Dameron Hospital and DOES 1 through 30 responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide proper medical screening to the plaintiff and apply the necessary treatment he needed.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks general damages, all medical expenses, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. He is represented by Joseph A. Androvich of Poswall, White & Brelsford in Sacramento.
