CHICAGO — A patient is suing the University of Chicago Medical Center and doctors Michael Ward, Yaniv Kerem, Nathan Trueger, Adrianne Dade, Kathryn Mills, Tao Xie and Jorel Martinez for allegedly taking insufficient measures to diagnose and treat a spinal cord condition.
Denise Taylor filed a lawsuit on March 3 in Cook County Circuit Court alleging that the defendants failed to provide her proper medical care after she complained of back pain, numbness in her legs and vibrations in her feet. The plaintiff claims the symptoms were characteristic of a spinal cord condition.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges she experienced pain due to the late diagnosis of her condition and holds the defendants responsible for allegedly failing to timely render a diagnosis and provide adequate treatment.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000 plus court costs. She is represented by Patrick A. Salvi, II and Aaron D. Boeder of Salvi, Schostok & Pritchard, P.C. in Chicago.
