Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen, Ltd. (Anesi Ozmon) announced a $4.5 million settlement in a medical malpractice action on behalf of a 63-year-old man who suffered a severe and permanent kidney injury and will spend the remainder of his life on dialysis. Michael Teich and associate Adam Gilbert reached the settlement agreement during mediation before the Honorable Michael Gallagher in Cook County on April 11, 2018. “Our client fully entrusted his doctor with his medical care over several years, and the doctor was aware of the need to responsibly monitor his kidney function. If she had responded appropriately after receiving urgent warning signs in lab results our client’s kidney injury could have been avoided,” Teich stated. “This settlement provides our client with the medical care he will need for the rest of his life.” (more…)
Partner Steven Berman obtained a $1,750,000.00 settlement for a student who had suffered a severe concussion when an inflatable amusement ride malfunctioned at a post-high school prom event. Although the company which supplied the ride initially denied liability, Steve was able to show that they used the wrong type of attachment to secure the ride. Our client was struck in the head with a chain when the apparatus came apart, and he continues to suffer from migraine headaches as a result of his head injury.
