CHICAGO — A patient at the Franciscan Alliance Inc., which does business as St. James Hospital of Olympia Fields, alleges insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries while she was using a physical therapy machine.
Bernice Denton filed a complaint on June 19 in Cook County Circuit Court against the hospital, alleging it failed to keep its premises reasonably safe for the plaintiff.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges she sustained permanent injuries when part of the machine collapsed and caused her to fall. The plaintiff holds Franciscan Alliance Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to warn the plaintiff about the defects of the physical therapy machine.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000 plus court costs. She is represented by Bryan J. O'Connor of O'Connor Law Group LLC in Chicago.
