CHICAGO — A patient is suing Amita Health Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center and others for allegedly incorrectly diagnosing his knee injury.
Lorenzo Miller filed a complaint on Jan. 16 in Cook County Circuit Court against the hospital; Primecare Community Health Inc.; West Town Health Center; and Marianne K. Holmer, alleging they misdiagnosed a complete rupture of the quadriceps tendon of his left knee as a sprained knee, depsite three weeks of treatment with no improvement. The rupture was revealed in an MRI nearly a month after the plaintiff first sought the aid of the defendants, the complaint said.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to perform an adequate physical examination and correlate symptoms.
The plaintiff seeks more than the jurisdictional amount, plus costs of suit and other relief. He is represented by Evan Karnes II and Everardo Martinez of Karnes Law Chartered in Chicago.
Cook County Circuit Court Case No. 2019L000574.
