Glenn Frey’s Wife Sues Hospital, Doctor for Negligence
Glenn Frey's wife says his end-of-life medical team failed to properly treat the Eagles singer and guitarist and failed to advise the family of the risks and side effects of treatment.
A new lawsuit filed in New York nearly two years after his death says Frey was "rendered sick, sore, lame and disabled" and suffered pain and mental anguish before dying on Jan. 18, 2016. Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan and Dr. Stephen Itzkowitz are named, according to Reuters. Cindy Frey also alleges her husband was not hospitalized promptly and an infection was not treated properly.
Frey ultimately died of acute ulcerative colitis, pneumonia and rheumatoid arthritis. Neither the hospital nor a representative for Dr. Irzkowitz commented on the lawsuit, filed on Tuesday (Jan. 16) just before the statute of limitations expired. It’s also not clear what kind of damages Mrs. Frey is seeking.
Glenn Frey co-founded the Eagles and helped write many of their biggest hits, taking lead vocals on "Take It Easy," "Peaceful Easy Feeling," "Already Gone" and more. He'd also go on to enjoy a successful solo career. Since his death the Eagles have started to tour again with Glenn's son Deacon and country singer Vince Gill filling in.
