$19.5 Million Settlement in Medical Malpractice Case
A former Global Controller for Chicago-based Citadel Hedge Funds, represented by Corboy & Demetrio partner David Barry, Jr., agreed to a settlement with Evanston Northwestern Healthcare Corporation of $19,500,000. Evanston Hospital failed to treat the Controller with the clot busting drug, tPA, after he went to its Emergency Department with symptoms suggestive of stroke. After being admitted, the nurses failed to respond to the wife of the Controller who repeatedly requested that her husband be re-evaluated. The stroke went undiagnosed and evolved over 12 hours, resulting in significant expressive and receptive aphasia.
The $19.5 million settlement secured by David Barry on behalf of his client who was not properly treated for stroke symptoms at Evanston Northwestern Hospital was reported widely in the media and featured in the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin.
