CHICAGO — A woman is suing several companies, individuals and health providers for alleged liability and negligence after she was sickened by E. coli contaminated food.
Joy Yee Noodle II Limited, and affiliated entities, Northshore University Healthsystem Medical Group, Northshore University Healthsystem Evanston Hospital, Dr. Timothy Peterson, Dr. Michael J. Goldberg and six other individuals were named as defendants.
Karen Emerle filed a complaint on Nov. 13 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the Joy Yee defendants failed to properly inspect the food items being served to her. She also alleges that the medical providers listed as defendants failed to provide her with proper medical care after she allegedly consumed food that was contaminated with E. coli.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she was served a food item that contained E. coli, because the defendants associated with the restaurant allegedly failed to properly maintain the kitchen where the food item was being prepared and make sure the beef they served was free from E. coli. She also holds the medical facilities and medical professionals responsible for allegedly failing to properly treat her after she allegedly was infected with E. coli.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendants in an amount greater than $50,000 plus court costs. She is represented by Robert Fink of Collison Law Offices Ltd. in Chicago.
