Nearing the anniversary of the death of actor Bill Paxton, his family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the surgeon and the world-famous Los Angeles hospital involved in the heart operation that triggered a fatal stroke.
Paxton, one of Hollywood's most popular actors with such credits as Twister and Big Love, was 61 when he died following a stroke last February 25, 11 days after the heart surgery to replace an aortic valve and fix an aortic aneurysm.
"According to the lawsuit, which was obtained by Page Six on Tuesday, the family claims Dr. Ali Khoynezhad performed an unnecessary procedure which resulted in the "Apollo 13" star's death 11 days later", The Post reports.
The complaint states that Paxton and his family members put their trust in the doctors and staff members at Cedars-Sinai, but the medical facility betrayed their trust.
Trump's lawyer confirms paying porn girl Daniels
U.S. magazine In Touch interviewed Daniels in 2011, when she told the tabloid about the 2006 affair and gave details. Cohen released this letter knowing that he, Donald Trump's longtime personal attorney, had paid Daniels $130,000.
The family also alleges that the Khoynezhad was not present when Paxton began experiencing complications as a result of the procedure, and failed to return, which allegedly caused a delay in further treatment.
His widow Louise and their children James and Lydia Paxton are seeking undisclosed damages, according to the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles on Friday.
The misguided treatment caused Paxton to suffer excessive bleeding, cardiogenic shock and a compromised coronary artery, the suit alleges.
A spokesperson for Cedars-Sinai was not immediately available for comment, but the hospital did issue an earlier written statement, saying that it was prohibited by law from discussing individual cases. These remain our top priorities.
Wind alters Shiffrin's race lineup
Frida Hansdotter, 32, of Sweden is a consistent podium finisher, even if she only has four World Cup slalom wins to her name. Shiffrin has dominated the slalom for five years, including her Olympic gold as a teenager and the past three world titles.
Paxton died of complications from surgery for an aortic aneurysm that resulted in a stroke, according to his death certificate, the story notes.
"One of the reasons for our high quality is that we thoroughly review concerns about any patient's medical vehicle", the statement continues.
Paxton, who appeared in films including Twister and Aliens, was 61 years old when he died last year.
The actor, born in Fort Worth, Texas, was starring in USA broadcaster CBS's Training Day series when he died.
