Paul Phillips, the former lead guitarist of Puddle of Mudd, claims that he may have problems making music and making a living … due to some shoddy care he claims to have received in hospital.
Paul is suing the Florida Beach Baptist Medical Center and several doctors for medical abuse … claiming that his treatment has left him with a brain injury and a serious seizure that could affect his ability to shake.
In the lawsuit received by TMZ, Paul claims that his brain has not been the same since he was admitted to the hospital in November 2019 after complaining of changed mental status and possible seizures.
Paul, who played in the band from 2001 to 2005 and 2009 to 2011, said initial tests showed he suffered from low sodium levels, but said doctors were doing a bad job of monitoring the situation and gradually returning levels to normal, claiming that levels rose too fast during his hospital stay.
In the documents, Paul claims that he was discharged from the hospital before being urgently returned 3 days later due to fainting. He says MRI scans of his brain show brain damage, which he said was caused by treatment he received during his previous hospital stay.
Paul, who was trained by Morgan & Morgan, said he still had seizures and other neurological problems that he said needed treatment at the Mayo Clinic. He claims that the brain problems will continue indefinitely and says that this impairs his ability to make a living.
Paul is suing the hospital and 2 doctors for damages.
