Paul Phillips, the former lead guitarist for Puddle of Mudd, claims he could have trouble making music and earning a living … due to a shabby care he allegedly received at a hospital.
Paul is suing the Florida Baptist Medical Center of the Beaches and a couple of doctors for medical malpractice … claiming that their treatments left him with brain damage and severe seizures that could affect his ability to rock.
In the lawsuit filed by TMZ, Paul claims his brain has not been the same since he was admitted to the hospital back in November 2019 after complaining of a changed mental status and possible seizures.
Paul, who played in the band from 2001 to 2005 and 2009 to 2011, claimed that the initial tests showed that he suffered from low sodium levels, but he says that the doctors did a bad job of monitoring the situation and gradually bringing the level back. to normal and claimed that the level rose too fast during his time in the hospital.
In the doctors, Paul claims he was discharged from the hospital before being rushed back 3 days later due to a seizure. He says MRI scans on the brain showed brain damage that he claimed was caused by the treatment he received during his previous hospital stay.
Paul, who is being rejected by Morgan & Morgan, claims he still has seizures and other neurological problems that he says require treatment at the Mayo Clinic. He claims that brain problems continue indefinitely and says it damages his ability to earn a living.
Paul is suing the hospital and 2 doctors for compensation.
