Case Results

  • Wrongful death/medical malpractice $4 million-plus in settlements — In two separate incidents at an Ohio hospital, communication breakdowns resulted in two patient deaths. Employees of the defendant hospital did not relay vital information about the patients to key caregivers in a timely manner, though the patients repeatedly voiced concerns about their conditions. In both instances, the parties reached confidential settlements.
  • Birth injury $2.8 million — Failure to respond to nonreassuring EFM strip; birth asphyxia; cerebral palsy; spastic quadriplegia
  • Medical malpractice $2.25 million — We represented a 60-year-old man who underwent multilevel laminectomy with placement of hardware. The patient developed a postoperative spinal epidural hematoma, causing C5 quadriplegia.
  • Birth injury $2.25 million settlement — Settlement for a baby born with physical disabilities due to obstetric malpractice. Baby suffers from cerebral palsy as a result of OB-GYN negligence. Oxygen deprivation prior to the baby's delivery led to permanent brain damage. Baby will require daily supervision for the rest of her life.
  • $2.25 million settlement — A 2-year-old suffered a significant brain injury as a result of untreated abdominal distension caused by a perforated duodenum, which led to cardiac arrest. The patient will remain in a vegetative state for the rest of her life.
  • Medical malpractice $1.8 million lawsuit settlement — Our client reported severe back pain over the course of several hospital visits. His severe back pain was spontaneous and unrelated to recent injury or trauma. Defendant physicians and hospitals committed numerous acts of medical malpractice through their failure to order an MRI, which would have revealed a spinal epidural abscess. When the abscess was finally diagnosed, our client had suffered permanent paralysis.
  • Wrongful death/medical malpractice $1.25 million wrongful death lawsuit settlement — While our client underwent routine knee surgery, the defendant anesthesiologist somehow neglected to monitor our client's ventilator. As a result, our client suffered a gradual anoxic brain injury (inadequate oxygen to the brain), leading to his death. To its credit, the malpractice insurer for the anesthesiologist settled promptly after we filed a lawsuit and set forth the clear evidence against the anesthesiologist.
  • Medical malpractice/loss of vision $1,225,000 lawsuit settlement — Plaintiff sought care from an optometrist for poor visual acuity. Despite aggressive treatment, the patient lost much of her vision and had to retire.
  • Birth injury $1.2 million birth injury lawsuit settlement — Birth injury resulting in cerebral palsy
  • Birth injury $1.2 million birth injury malpractice settlement — Permanent birth injury due to prolonged labor
  • Delayed diagnosis of optic nerve tumor $980,000 — Failure of an ophthalmologist and optometrists to recognize the signs and symptoms of a growing optic nerve tumor in a child, leading to permanent blindness in one eye and partial blindness in the other.
