Mother files negligence lawsuit against doctors for son’s birth injury

A mother has filed a lawsuit against a number of physicians at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital, where her son was born in 2003. She alleges that they were negligent in failing to exercise reasonable care in rendering medical treatment, and that such negligence caused her son to develop an eye injury.

Li Jun Huang filed a lawsuit in Cook County Circuit Court against Elmhurst Clinic LLC and Elmhurst Memorial Hospital. The other defendants in the case are Dr. Victoria Uribe, Dr. Robert Anderson, Dr. Michael Hoffman, Dr. David Matusiak, Dr. Marianne Senese, Dr. Kristen Zeitler and Dr. Megan Clipp.

The complaint states that on March 22, 2007, her son received a diagnosis of a severe impairment to the right eye from which he had been suffering since birth. The plaintiff claims the defendants neglected to discover, diagnose, treat and perform an evaluation of her son’s medical condition following his birth. She is requesting a trial by jury and damages in excess of $50,000.
