Advocate Christ Medical Center allegedly enrolled unqualified patient in medical trial

CHICAGO — A woman is suing Advocate Christ Medical Center and others medical providers, alleging they enrolled another woman in a medical trial despite her not meeting study criteria.

Lisa Villanova, who is serving as executor of the estate of Evelyn Gall, filed a complaint on Jan. 24 in Cook County Circuit Court.

According to the complaint, Gall -- who suffered from medical conditions such as hypertension, dyslipidemia, peripheral vascular disease, glaucoma -- sustained severe and permanent injuries that caused her death on in January 2017. Plaintiff claims her death was a result of being enrolled in a study for insertion of a cardiac device, despite her not meeting the study criteria as a patient. 

The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to investigate whether the research study treatment was appropriate for Gall and failed to timely diagnose and properly treat her condition.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant in an amount in excess of court's requisite. She is represented by Timothy Ashe and Kristina Green of Kralovec, Jambois & Schwartz in Chicago.

Cook County Circuit Court Case No. 19-L-868.
