CHICAGO — An estate's administrator is suing a doctor and a Chicago hospital, alleging negligence caused a relative's death.
Veronica Alonzo, as estate administrator for Jose Alonzo, filed a lawsuit April 18 in Cook County Circuit Court against Dr. Leonard Kranzler, Illinois Masonic Medical Center and Northside Neurosurgery LLC,
alleging they negligently failed to exercise the proper standard in providing medical care and treatment.
