A family hires Levin & Perconti to represent them in a medical malpractice lawsuit against a suburban Chicago hospital for improper treatment and early discharge. After the woman tried to commit suicide, she stayed at the hospital for seven days. Instead of keeping the woman under psychiatric supervision, they discharged her. Two weeks later the woman was readmitted for different medical reasons but visibly suffered from depression and psychosis of which the hospital did not treat.
