CHICAGO—A Cook County man claims his wife died as a result of a misdiagnosed brain aneurysm.
Joseph P. Triner, independent administrator of the estate of Melinda P. Triner, filed a lawsuit in Cook County Circuit Court against Dr. Adele A. Castaldi, Loyola University Health System (doing business as Loyola Center for Health at River Forest and Loyola Center for Health at Gottleib), and Dr. Lisa Liu, alleging medical negligence and wrongful death. Dr. William W. Ashley Jr. is named as a respondent in discovery.
According to the complaint, Melinda Triner was diagnosed by Castaldi during an April 17, 2015 exam at Loyola Center at River Forest with mixed headache syndrome. When symptoms had not improved by April 20, the suit says Trine sought care from Liu at Loyola’s Gottleib facility, where she was diagnosed with vertigo/headache. Three days later, the plaintiff claims Triner was rushed to Loyola University Medical Center after being found unresponsive. On April 25, she died of a cerebral aneurysm.
Triner seeks a jury trial and damages in excess of $50,000. He is represented by attorney Susan J. Schwartz of Corboy & Demetrio P.C. in Chicago.
