Case Histories - Medical Malpractice

$1.5 Million Settlement

Ed Walsh secured this settlement in a DuPage County wrongful death action involving the death of a two-day-old premature infant (25 weeks gestation).

$1.5 Million Post-Trial Settlement

Obenauf v. Nickerson, MD and Copley Hospital

16th Judicial Circuit 00LK-630

Lead trial lawyer Ed Walsh secured this medical malpractice settlement for our client after a four week jury trial. The client's wife and unborn child died after both an emergency room physician and an obstetrician negligently failed to diagnose the wife's aortic dissection. Defendant Dr. Nickerson instead discharged her with instructions to take Mylanta and Tylenol and to follow up with her obstetrician. Defendant obstetrician Dr. Hussey also negligently failed to diagnose the aortic dissection and discharged our client's wife with a prescription for a stronger pain-killer.
