Ronald Walker filed a three-count medical malpractice suit against Anderson Hospital, Dr. David Autry and Maryville Radiology Group in Madison County Circuit Court June 27, seeking damages in excess of $225,000.
Walker claims the defendants assumed his care on July 1, 2005, and during the course of his treatment they allegedly failed to diagnose his subcapital right femoral hip fracture by misreading the x-ray.
He also claims they failed to treat his hip fracture.
Represented by Tom Keefe of Belleville, Walker claims his condition went undiagnosed and untreated causing permanent pain, mental anguish, disability and disfigurement.
Walker also claims he has been prevented from attending to his usual affairs and duties, lost wages and income and will continue to lose income, and has become responsible for large sums of money in hospital and medical expenses.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Nicholas Byron.
