Late Night host and Comedian Trevor Noah have filed a lawsuit against New York City hospital and his Doctor alleging that their negligence caused him to “sustain permanent, severe and grievous injuries,” according to the complaint obtained by CNN.

Noah alleges the Hospital for Special Surgery and Dr. Riley J. Williams III failed to properly diagnose his condition and illness, failed to refer him to skilled and trained specialists to treat his illness.

He also alleges that they failed to both provide appropriate medical treatment and to obtain proper and informed consent for treatment.

A spokesperson for Hospital for Special Surgery provided CNN with a statement that began “HSS received a complaint filed on behalf of Mr. Trevor Noah.”

“We have shared with Mr. Noah’s attorney a detailed rebuttal to the claims, which are meritless,” the statement reads. “Due to HIPAA, we are restricted by law from addressing publicly specific aspects of the treatment of any patient.”

According to the complaint, Trevor received treatment from Hospital for Special Surgery and Dr. Riley J. Williams III between Aug. 25, 2020, and Dec. 17, 2020, including surgery on Nov. 23, 2020.

During that time, the complaint says Noah “sustained severe and painful personal injuries, sustained severe nervous shock, mental anguish, severe emotional distress, and great physical pain.”

Noah was “confined to bed and home for a long period of time; was compelled to undergo hospital and medical aid,” which led him to suffer “loss of enjoyment of life” and prevented him from doing his job for a long period of time, the complaint said.

Because some of his injuries are permanent,” he will continue to suffer similar damages in the future,” the complaint also states.
