$350,000 Settlement – Surgical Error
A settlement was reached after a 93-year-old woman lost her life after suffering complications due to a Chicago-area physician negligently placing the lead of a pacemaker into the incorrect ventricle of the plaintiff’s heart. Prior to surgery, the plaintiff was living without assistance, using public transportation and enjoying spending time with grandchildren and great-grandchildren. This is the largest award of its kind in Illinois on behalf of a 90+ year-old for a heart-related medical malpractice case.
