CHICAGO — Two people are suing Gold Coast Surgicenter LLC and Dr. Jeffrey Podnar for allegedly taking insufficient measures to prevent injuries.
Frutoso Salgado Diaz and Mercedes Salgado filed a complaint on Dec. 11 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging Diaz sustained serious physical injuries, including cardiac arrest and neurologic brain damage, after undergoing surgery. The plaintiffs hold the defendants responsible for allegedly failing to monitor Diaz and notice his "decreased ventilation while ...under the effects of anesthesia."
The plaintiffs seek judgment against the defendants in an amount greater than $50,000 plus court costs. They are represented by Kurt D. Lloyd of Lloyd Law Group Ltd. in Chicago.
