$10.5 million settlement for 12 year-old boy who suffered low oxygen brain injury

Settlement:
$10,500,000

$10.5 million medical negligence settlement for a 12 year-boy against a university medical center who suffered a low oxygen (hypoxic) brain injury following a long surgery where the patient’s breathing tube was removed too quickly after surgery and he was then not properly monitored in the recovery room. This settlement occurred on the third day of trial after we barred the defendant’s medical expert on causation in an amount four times what was offered before trial. Another Chicago law firm dropped this case because they could not locate a medical expert.

Because of our efforts this young man will now be taken care of the rest of his life.

THIS SETTLEMENT WAS RECOGNIZED BY THE NATIONAL LAW JOURNAL AS A TOP 50 SETTLEMENT IN THE ENTIRE COUNTRY FOR 2014.
