CHICAGO — A man is suing Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Northwestern Medical Group, a nurse, Dr. Ami Shah, Dr. Courtney Furlough and Dr. Jason A. Wertheim for alleged negligence.

Juan Buenrostro filed a complaint on Sept. 27 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the defendants gave him aspirin, which allegedly increased his bleeding risk and caused an intracerebral hemorrhage that allegedly left him severely injured. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible for allegedly failing to recognize that taking aspirin would increase the risk of bleeding due to his conditions.

The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendants in an amount that exceeds the jurisdictional limits of this court. He is represented by Peter D. Tarpey of Tarpey, Jones & Schroeder LLC in Chicago.

Cook County Circuit Court case number 2017L009812
