CHICAGO — A woman is suing Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Northwestern Medical Group, and Bradley R. Merk, M.D., citing alleged negligence and insufficient measures taken to prevent injuries.
Linette Graham filed a complaint on March 3 in the Cook County Circuit Court against the defendants alleging that they failed to provide her with proper medical care, causing her to develop deep vein thrombosis. The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to provide an anticoagulant after surgery.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000, plus court costs and any further relief the court grants. She is represented by David J. Loughnane of Loughnane Law in Crystal Lake.
