CHICAGO – A lawsuit brought by patient against two chiropractors, alleging their actions post-surgery resulted in permanent pain and suffering, has been dismissed.
On May 10, 2018, a Cook County judge accepted the motion from plaintiff Alejandro Garcia-Rivera to voluntarily withdraw his complaint against Grandview Health Partners Ltd., which is also known as Doctores Y Mas and Rehab Dynamix Ltd.; Brandon Korfel, D.C.; and Lee De Las Casas, D.C. The lawsuit had been filed on Dec. 3 2017, in Cook County Circuit Court.

The plaintiff was represented by attorney Kessa M. Palchikoff of Sukhman Yagoda in Chicago.
The defendants were represented by the firms of Brenner Monroe Scott & Anderson, of Chicago, and Hall Prangle Schoonveld, of Chicago.
