CHICAGO — A patient is suing Presence Central and Suburban Hospitals Network, Presence Legacy Association, Dr. Edwin M. Hinton IV and several other medical providers for negligence.
Gary L. Corbett filed a complaint on May 1 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the defendants misdiagnosed his condition. He claims he was given a single pain pill and sent home. He allegedly had sought medical care after falling off a ladder and hurting his right foot.
He later underwent a CT scan, which allegedly showed that he had suffered a "shattered" heel.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in an amount greater than $50,000, plus costs. He is represented by Hall Adams of the Law Offices of Hall Adams in Chicago.
