By Louie Torres | Oct 26, 2017

CHICAGO — A couple is suing Trinity Health Corporation, Loyola University Medical Center, Loyola University Health System, doctors Gerard Abbood, Adrian Dobrowolsky, Michael Anstadt, Zachary Bastian, Cynthia Weber, Richard Gonzalez,  and Jacqueline Brosius and two nurses for alleged negligence.

Thomas Genetz and Martha Genetz filed a complaint on Sept. 29 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging Thomas Genetz developed compartment syndrome in his left leg, which allegedly necessitated left hip amputation. The plaintiffs hold the defendants responsible for allegedly failing to recognize the need to perform an iliac vein reconstruction on Genetz during surgery.

The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against the defendants in an amount greater than $50,000 plus court costs. They are represented by Donald A. Shapiro and Matthew R. Basinger of Donald A. Shapiro Ltd. in Chicago.
