CHICAGO — An administrator of a deceased woman's estate is suing a doctor, identified as Palmer J. Blakley, M.D.; Metrosouth Medical Center; and Unimed Ltd., alleging wrongful death after the medical professionals and organizations allegedly failed to diagnose and treat the woman's lung cancer.
Colleen Quinlisk Siau, as independent administrator of the estate of Althea Wright, filed a complaint on Sept. 30 in Cook County Circuit Court against the defendants, alleging that they failed to provide proper medical care to Wright.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that Wright's lung cancer wasn't diagnosed until it progressed to an advanced condition that caused her death.
The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to properly diagnose Wright's lung cancer and provide the necessary treatment needed to prevent it from progressing.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendants in an amount greater than $50,000. She is represented by Margaret P. Battersby and Daniel A. Goldfaden of Levin & Perconti in Chicago.
