CHICAGO — A mother is suing Advocate Lutheran General Hospital; a doctor, identified as Jodi Sklansky, D.O.; and a medical practice, identified as Midwest Center for Women's Healthcare, alleging negligence in medical care, for injuries the woman's son allegedly sustained during childbirth.
Luisa Luce filed suit Sept. 22 in Cook County Circuit Court on behalf of her son against the defendants, alleging that they failed to provide proper medical care to Luisa Luce and her then-unborn child.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that in 2014, the child sustained serious physical injuries including severe hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy and brain injuries. The plaintiffs hold the defendants responsible because they allegedly failed to properly monitor the condition of the child during childbirth.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000. They are represented by Matthew M. Patterson and Douglas J. Raymond of Beam and Raymond in Chicago.
