CHICAGO — A woman is suing West Suburban Medical Center, Dr. Nathalie McCammon-Chase and Dr. Justine Parker for alleged medical negligence.
Melissa Boos, mother and administrator of the estate of her son, filed a complaint on May 23 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the defendants failed to provide her with proper medical care while she was in labor.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges she sought treatment from the defendants to give birth to her son. The plaintiff claims the defendants did not advocate for emergent cesarean delivery, which allegedly caused her baby to die from hypoxic-ischemic injuries.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in an amount that exceeds the jurisdictional limits of this court. She is represented by Joseph W. Balesteri and Kathryn L. Conway of Powers Rogers & Smith LLP in Chicago.
Cook County Circuit Court case number 18-L-5291
