Patient alleges misread x-ray

By Michael Abella | Dec 8, 2016

BELLEVILLE — A patient alleges his x-ray was misread and doctors failed to diagnose a fracture.

Roger Kuerth filed a complaint on Nov. 7 in St. Clair County Circuit Court against Neetin Patel, M.D., MidAmerica Radiology SC and Good Samaritan Regional Health Center, alleging they deviated from standard procedure in medical care.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 8, 2014, he underwent an X-ray that was misread. As a result, he was misdiagnosed and mistreated, which caused him to suffer permanent injuries and pain, mental anguish, disability, lost wages and to become liable to expensive medical treatment, he alleges.

The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to diagnose a fracture and negligently rendered injurious treatment.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment exceeding $75,000, plus costs of suit.

He is represented by Thomas Q. Keefe Jr. of Keefe, Keefe & Unsell PC in Belleville.
