CHICAGO —  A woman is suing Northwestern Memorial Hospital for allegedly taking insufficient measures to prevent her daughter's injuries.

Jessica Garcia filed a complaint on Nov. 14 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the defendant failed to provide her daughter with proper medical care.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges her daughter contracted respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and the defendant allegedly failed to consider her daughter's risk of developing RSV and provide immunoprophylactic treatment, allegedly causing permanent injuries.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount that exceeds the jurisdictional limits of this court that will compensate her for all damages. She is represented by Peter D. Hoste of Leahy & Hoste LLC in Chicago.
