Case Histories - Medical Malpractice

$2.2 Million Award

Krywokulski v. Wilbur, et al.

Circuit Court of Cook County, IL

Walsh, Knippen & Cetina, Chartered represented the family of a 31-year-old husband and father who was prescribed the drug Tambacor for a heart condition. Through the discovery process and the assistance of well-qualified experts, our firm was able to show that the drug had been improperly labeled by the manufacturer and improperly prescribed by the physician in this case. The award in this case will allow the family of this victim the opportunity to avoid the additional financial hardships that otherwise might have accompanied his tragic death.

$1 Million Settlement

Lair v. Khawaja, MD

18th Judicial Circuit 12L-512.

Trial lawyer Ed Walsh obtained this medical malpractice settlement for our client, whose doctors' negligence in failing to diagnose and treat our client's blood bacterial infection necessitated a cardiac mitral valve replacement.

Ed Walsh was able to convince the defendant doctors and hospital to proceed to mediation before retired DuPage County Circuit Judge Hollis Webster at the earliest stages of the litigation. Judge Webster was successful in mediating the $1,000,000.00 settlement.

$1 Million Post-Trial Settlement

Bredfelt v. Marie Claude-Genest, MD and Central DuPage Hospital

18th Judicial Circuit 09L-1128.

Lead trial lawyer Ed Walsh secured this medical malpractice settlement for our client during jury deliberations after a two-week trial. The case involved the death of a 38-year-old husband and father of their two young daughters; he died of bilateral pulmonary emboli that his treating physician negligently failed to diagnose.

$2.5 Million Settlement

Anderson v. Brendan Thompson, MD

Circuit Court of Cook County 04L-12491.

Trial lawyer Ed Walsh obtained this medical malpractice settlement for his client, whose husband suffered congestive heart failure that ultimately lead to his wrongful death. The defendant physician failed to correctly interpret abnormalities in routine annual EKG tracings. As a result, treatable cardiac conditions were neglected, and congestive heart failure developed. Defendant Dr. Thompson failed to recommend that plaintiff's husband consult a cardiologist or receive further cardiac testing.

$5.7 Million Settlement

Thomas v. Ibrahim, MD

18th Judicial Circuit 08L-865

Lead trial lawyer Ed Walsh secured this medical malpractice settlement for our client, a 15 year old who suffered permanent paraplegia due to negligently performed spine surgery. The surgery was performed by a prominent, nationally-known pediatric orthopedic spine surgeon. The experience, skill, and wisdom of Ed Walsh resulted in the defendant surgeon and his practice group paying the full limit of their liability insurance. A Chicago suburban hospital substantially contributed to the settlement. According to the Chicago Law Bulletin Publishing Company, the settlement amount is the highest ever DuPage County settlement or jury verdict for paraplegia.
