Case Histories - Medical Malpractice

$1.775 Million Settlement

Garcia v. Horwitz, M.D., et al.

After two days of trial before the Honorable John E. Morrissey, Cook County Circuit Judge, Ed Walsh settled this challenging case against a Chicago hospital and head and neck surgeon. Sadly, after undergoing a routine outpatient surgery to correct a deviated nasal septum, Alberto Gallardo, age 34, died. Seeking justice for the needless death of her son, his 80-year-old mother retained experienced Illinois medical malpractice trial attorney, Ed Walsh.

Ed Walsh retained the expert medical guidance and testimonial assistance of a head and neck surgeon with extensive national experience in order to successfully prosecute this challenging case. The trial attorneys were able to convincingly illustrate that the defendant surgeon negligently ordered a post operative pain medication, Toradol, to be given to Alberto. As a result, his blood platelets were unable to allow his surgical wounds to coagulate and stop bleeding, thereby creating the need for two additional surgeries.

$1.73 Million Jury Verdict Upheld on Appeal

Compton v. Ubilluz, M.D. and Nour, M.D.

DuPage County Case No. 00 L 546

After a three week jury trial before the Honorable Hollis Webster, Chief Judge of the Law Division, Ed Walsh secured a jury verdict of $1,730,000.00 in a medical malpractice case.

The trial lawyers rejected as totally unreasonable the defense's settlement offers of $600,000 before trial and $750,000 at the conclusion of the case. The jury returned with a verdict of $1.73 million. This verdict was $730,000 in excess of the doctor defendant's policy of insurance.

$1.1 Million Award

Janetis v. Christensen, M.D., et al.

Circuit Court of Cook County, IL

Ed Walsh represented the family of a 59-year-old produce manager whose family doctor failed to follow up on his complaints related to his symptoms of colon cancer, as well as a radiologist who improperly read a barium scan of the man's colon. The case was resolved against a final defendant in mid-trial, after the defense had refused to make any offer of settlement. The resolution provided for the victim's widow's financial needs and allowed her to remain in the family home. It also demonstrated our firms commitment to pursue full and fair compensation for all of our clients against all liable wrongdoers.

$1.55 Million Settlement

Enyart v. Rahn, MD, et al.

DuPage County Circuit Court 03L1130

Ed Walsh settled this medical malpractice case just prior to trial and after two extensive mediation sessions before the Honorable Hollis Webster. The case involved a 70-year-old woman who suffered a neurologic stroke as a result of non-emergency orthopedic ankle surgery at Elmhurst Hospital. The defendants included an internist, an orthopedic surgeon, and two anesthesiologists.

$1.75 Million Settlement

Bork vs. Johnson, MD & CDH

18th Judicial Circuit 06 L 783

Ed Walsh secured this settlement for our 11-year-old client whose mother needlessly died as a result of the negligent medical delay in the diagnosis of her breast cancer.
