$3.5 Million Verdict In Record-Setting Medical Malpractice Case

Published: Sep 27, 2016 in Medical Malpractice

As medical malpractice attorneys in Jackson County, Illinois, The Cates Law Firm, LLC have dealt with various instances of negligent medical care. For example, during a new mother’s delivery, a preventable fetal distress went unnoticed by the medical staff, which resulted in a newborn suffering an anoxic brain injury. This led the family to reach out to the attorneys with The Cates Law Firm to discuss their available legal resources. By utilizing their considerable experience with medical malpractice and traumatic brain injury claims, the case was effectively argued in court, where the jury awarded a record-setting verdict of approximately $3.5 million.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
