$2.6 Million Settlement

LoCoco v. Garbowski, M.D.

Circuit Court of Cook County Case Number 85 L 19291

This case involved the death of a 40-year-old mother of three young children. She died as a result of her doctor failing to diagnose that she was suffering from intestinal angina, a condition which resulted in the rotting of her bowels. This medical negligence case involved claims against her family doctor, a major Chicago area university hospital, and a gastrointestinal specialist.

Pre-trial preparation and discovery in this case included the taking of 42 depositions of lay witnesses, nurses, doctors, and expert physician witnesses throughout the United States. The use of computerized deposition transcript organization allowed trial attorney Ed Walsh to efficiently organize and review all depositions immediately when necessary.

The jury trial of this case was conducted in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Chicago, Illinois; the case lasted three weeks. On the morning of closing arguments before the jury, trial attorney Ed Walsh settled this case for $2,675,000. Prior to trial, no offers of settlement were made.

As a result of the settlement, the three surviving children have been able to provide for their education and lifetime financial security, thereby allowing them to pursue and achieve their vocational and professional goals.
