$1.8 Million U.S. District Court Award Secured by Corboy & Demetrio

12.2007

After a bench trial in the United States District Court, Judge Samuel P. King ruled in favor of the plaintiff, represented by Corboy & Demetrio, and held that two doctors from Alivio Medical Center were negligent in performing laparoscopic surgery for the removal of an ovarian cyst. During the procedure, the plaintiff’s iliac artery was lacerated and she nearly bled to death. She required a complex abdominal closure, several subsequent surgeries, and a two-year recovery period during which she was unable to work.

Corboy & Demetrio's client was awarded $1.8 million for the negligence committed by doctors when they performed laparoscopic surgery.  The case was reported in the Chicago Lawyer and Chicago Daily Law Bulletin.
