Dismissal of Hospital Affirmed on Appeal

Partner Brian Levin, Associate Brad Wolven, and Deborah O’Brien (of counsel) successfully defended the dismissal of Rush Oak Park Hospital on appeal before the First District Appellate Court in Chicago. The appellate court affirmed the trial court’s dismissal of Rush on grounds that the plaintiff failed to exercise reasonable diligence in serving Rush with plaintiff’s summons and complaint alleging negligent performance of a vertebroplasty procedure performed at the hospital.
