These are some of the cases of interest we are currently working on:

  • L.B. v. Pekin Hospital and Dr. Harrington – A cesarean section delivery was not performed resulting in the delivery of a boy damaged by in utero hypoxia and ischemia. Our suit claims that the hospital and physician are jointly liable for the child's cerebral palsy.
  • J.H. v. Brian Morsch et al. - A construction worker was thrown from an aerial bucket truck when its arm fractured during normal use, causing severe internal injuries and a permanent pain disorder. We are pursuing the landowner who hired the worker and the owner/operator of the lift truck for compensatory damages.
  • J.P. v. West Suburban Hospital, Nephrologists of Northern Illinois et al. – A 61 year old woman came to the hospital with severe hyponatremia, low sodium levels in her blood. The medical staff administered excessive sodium therapy to her, causing a well-known type of brain injury, osmotic demyelination. This is the second such case our office has prosecuted in the past two years.
  • S.U. v. Osco Pharmacy — We represent a man who suffers from tardive dyskinesia and dystonia as the result of having been negligently prescribed the drug Reglan for more than six years. Suit is pending against the family practice physician who gave the drug for years without knowledge of a black box warning from the drug's manufacturer that it should only be used for 12 weeks, except in rare cases. We also sued the pharmacy that dispensed the drug as it should have been aware of the manufacturer's warnings, yet neglected to alert the patient or the doctor of the warning. Our client is disabled from his employment as a Local 134 electrician due to his injuries.
  • Estate of T.E. v. Pekin Hospital and Dr. Dwayne McQuitty — Dr. McQuitty negligently operated on a 35-year-old man and caused post-operative bleeding. He compounded his error by negligently failing to diagnose and treat the bleeding. The patient bled to death at the hospital, leaving his wife surviving.
  • L.T. v. Methodist Medical Center, et al. — Our client came to the hospital for elective surgery on her shoulder. During the peri-operative period, she arrested. During her continued care, hospital personnel oversaw her condition as she suffered decreased circulation to her legs that led to both legs being amputated below the knees.
