$12.2 Million Verdict Affirmed

Bruce Pfaff and Matthew Ports yesterday learned that the First District Appellate Court in Chicago, Illinois affirmed a verdict for $12.2 million they obtained for a southwest suburban family two years ago. The verdict was against AES, a corporate subsidiary of Fresenius, and a plasmapheresis nurse who was called on an emergency basis to provide care to the firm's client who was in the emergency department at Advocate Christ Medical Center. The nurse delayed 6 hours in responding to the hospital even though she had finished her other duties and was only 45 minutes away when she received the call. The nurse chose to do a non-emergency case at another hospital to make more money, then she went home for 3 hours before finally going to Advocate Christ. By the time she arrived at the hospital, a 50-year-old husband and father of three had arrested and could not be saved. He died of thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), a blood disease.
