CHICAGO — A couple is suing Northshore University Health System and two of its physicians, citing alleged medical negligence.
Richard Cozza and Michelle Cozza filed a complaint June 29 in Cook County Circuit Court against Northshore, Dr. Jessica Folk and Dr. Steven Meyers, alleging between June 22, 2017 and June 29, 2017, Richard Cozza received surgical, medical, nursing and other allied healthcare services at the defendants' hospital until he was ultimately diagnosed with an ischemic stroke.
The Cozzas claim that although the defendants knew that Richard Cozza had suffered a stroke, they allegedly did not perform the treatment necessary for his condition. As a result, the plaintiffs claim Richard Cozza sustained injuries that left him unable to support his wife.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek a judgment in amount greater than $50,000. They are represented by Brian Murphy of Hofeld and Schaffner in Chicago.
