Chicago law firm sues Advocate Medical Group over theft of patient information
DOWNERS GROVE – A Chicago-based law firm filed a class action suit Thursday against Advocate Medical Group on behalf of millions of patients whose privacy and medical information were compromised by the alleged theft of four computers at an administrative office in July.
Advocate Medical Group is based in Downers Grove.
The Chicago law firm brought the action on behalf of a Northbrook mother and her daughter who were patients of Advocate and whose personal information was allegedly maintained at Advocate Medical Group offices in Park Ridge. The lawsuit alleges that the health care group was negligent in protecting private data and failed to use encryption and other basic security measures on behalf of its patients, according to a press release from the law firm.
