Recent Verdicts
& Settlements

Anybody can say they provide expert-level litigation, but can they actually show it. Here are results we have recently obtained for some of our clients. Every case is different, and the amount we recover for you depends on the circumstances of your case. If you’re curious about how much we might be able to recover for you, please give us a call.

$8500000

Severe Brain Injury Case

A 50-year-old woman was in a cross-walk when she was struck by a garbage truck. She suffered a permanent brain injury that left her unable to walk or talk. As a result of the settlement, she was able to get the therapy she needed to learn how to do these basic activities all over again.

$5250000

Brain Injury from Bariatric Surgery

A 40-year-old woman went to the emergency room eight different times in the two months following her bariatric weight loss surgery. Despite her reports of relentless nausea and vomiting, the doctors did not recognize that she was suffering from Wernicke’s Syndrome, a well-known complication from weight loss surgery. As a result of not getting enough thiamine (vitamin B) to her brain, she suffered a permanent brain injury.

$5000000

Wrongful Death from
Undiagnosed Heart Issue

A father of three young children went to the emergency room with classic signs of a heart attack. Although the doctor performed the corrects tests, he misinterpreted the results and told the patient he was okay to go home. A few days later, the young father went skiing with his son when he suffered a heart attack and died.

$4000000

Ruptured Appendix Nerve Injury

A 9-year old girl went to a small town urgent care clinic with classic symptoms of appendicitis. The doctor dismissed it as the flu and sent her home. Although her parents called several times over the next few days to report that she was not improving, the clinic said they could not help her. By the time she was seen again, her appendix had ruptured and the infection had damaged her nervous system to the point she is now a quadriplegic and confined to a wheel chair.

$3000000

Wrongful Death from
Delayed Treatment of Heart Issue

A 61 year-old man went to his cardiologist to get his heart tested. The doctor sent the patient to have a test performed and said he would call later with the results. The results of the test showed the patient’s heart needed urgent treatment, but the doctor did not call the patient. After not hearing anything for several days, the patient called the doctor’s office and was told a doctor would call him back. A few days later he called again, and was again told the doctor would call back. A few days later, the patient called a third time and got the same response. After another few days, the patient called a fourth time, and got the same response. A couple of days later, the patient called again, but still couldn’t reach the doctor. After leaving another message and sending an email, the patient went outside to work on his yard. Minutes later he suffered a heart attack and died.

$3000000

Birth Injury Case

A young mother was pregnant with her first child. A rural family practice doctor told her he could manage her pregnancy, rather than refer her to a specialist that could handle any complications. Unfortunately, complications arose and the doctor, along with the nurses at the small rural hospital, failed to recognize what was happening. The baby was deprived of oxygen for extended periods during the delivery and suffered a permanent brain injury.

$2800000

Brain Injury from Bariatric Surgery

A 38-year old man experienced persistent nausea and vomiting after bariatric weight loss surgery. Eventually he began having trouble with his vision. His surgeon, and several emergency room doctors, failed to recognize that his symptoms were related to a vitamin deficiency known as Wernicke’s Syndrome that is commonly associated with weight loss surgery. By the time they figured it out, the man had suffered a permanent brain injury.

Disclaimer: The amount we are able to recover depends on the facts, which are different for each case. The value of your particular case cannot be determined until we have an opportunity to evaluate the circumstances.
