Gregor Šilih was 20 years old when he sought medical help at a hospital for itchy skin and nausea. Without conducting any prior investigations, doctors injected him with two active substances. Gregor then went into an anaphylactic shock. His condition remained critical for two weeks, after which he died.
Gregor’s parents believed that his death had been the result of negligent medical practices, which had then been covered up. They issued legal proceedings against the hospital to find out what happened.
Sixteen years later, the Slovenian courts had still not fully resolved the case. This left Gregor’s parents unable to determine the cause of their son’s death and whether anyone should be held accountable.
