CHICAGO — A former Cook County jail inmate is suing Dr. Andrew Defuniak, Dr. Reena Paul and other unknown medical personnel and  health providers, alleging insufficient health care measures were taken to prevent injuries and negligence.

Joseph Felton filed a complaint on June 22 in Cook County Circuit Court against the defendants, alleging they failed to provide proper medical care to the plaintiff or provide proper pain relief.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges he was involved in a motor vehicle crash and the defendants, including Cook County, allegedly failed to properly treat the plaintiff's complaints of pain.
