The Cook County Record reports that Florence Williams has filed a medical negligence lawsuit against Dr. Nilesh D. Mehta, Waukegan Illinois Hospital Company LLC, and Oncology Hematology Associates of Northern Illinois LLC. Ms. Williams alleges that the defendants failed to exercise the appropriate standard of care in the diagnosis and treatment of her condition. Dr. Mehta specializes in Hematology/Oncology and is affiliated with the Oncology Hematology Association of Northern Illinois.
Williams charges the defendants with excessive chemotherapy resulting in serious illness and permanent injury. An error in the management of an oncology case may lead to devastating results. Because these cases are complex and require a thorough analysis of the requisite elements of negligence, only the most experienced, board-certified expert witness can credibly evaluate the case. This medical expert is invaluable in developing a strategic plan and presenting facts to the jury regarding whether medical negligence took place.
