$1.55 Million Medical Malpractice Settlement

Ed Walsh recently settled DuPage County Circuit Court medical malpractice case number 03L1130 just prior to trial and after two extensive mediation sessions before the Honorable Hollis Webster. This 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, orthopedic surgeon and two anesthesiologists.

Ed and Tom were able to achieve this outstanding result by demonstrating the negligence of the doctors through the testimony of four highly respected medical expert witnesses. They simplified the issue of the causation of the stroke by working with High Impact Graphics and created a digital video illustrating the physiology of the vascular neurologic injury. The catastrophic damages suffered by their client were presented with a day in the life digital movie and the use of Sanction evidentiary exhibit presentation software.

The extensive trial skills and medical malpractice experience of Ed, Tom and all of the members of the Firm and its trial team allowed them to simplify a very complex medical malpractice case and achieve a successful settlement.

The trial lawyers at WKC express their deep gratitude to all of those DCBA members who continue to refer their seriously injured clients to the Firm for limited representation, on a referral fee basis, in the challenging and specialized area of personal injury law .
