A Cook County woman is suing a doctor and an Oak Park hospital, alleging wrongful death.
Mary Ann Vogt, independent administrator of the estate of Richard W. Vogt, filed a complaint Sept. 17 in Cook County Circuit Court against Dr. Michael Loiacono, West Suburban Medical Center of Oak Park and Resurrection University.
According to the complaint, Richard Vogt was under Loiacono’s care between Sept. 24 and Oct. 1, 2014, and a CT scan Oct. 1 revealed Vogt was suffering from a retroperitoneal hemorrhage. The suit says his condition caused him to go into cardiac arrest from which he later died.
The plaintiff alleges negligence, saying the defendant failed to make the diagnosis in a timely manner, which led to Vogt’s death.
Mary Ann Vogt seeks a jury trial and damages of more than $50,000. She is represented by attorney Thomas G. Siracusa of Power Rogers & Smith in Chicago.
Cook County Circuit Court case number 2015-L-009533.
