Verdict 3.343 Million Dollars

Settlement 2 Million Dollars
Goldstein Bender & Romanoff settles a claim for a woman injured in a hospital when her surgeon improperly inserted a vena cava filter in an attempt to catch a blood clot. Unfortunately, the surgeon and hospital lacked the knowledge to understand the implications of inserting the filter as he did, and the device manufacturer failed to adequately inform the surgeon of the danger. This claim settled for 2 million dollars.

Settlement 900,000.00 Dollars
Goldstein Bender & Romanoff obtains a significant settlement for the death of a 70 year old man who died in the operating room when aspirgillus fungus entered the operating room and affixed to the man’s heart during open heart surgery.

Settlement 750,000.00 Dollars
Goldstein Bender & Romanoff obtains a significant settlement for the death of an intoxicated 16 year old boy who fell to his death while trespassing in a recently purchased dilapidated building.

Goldstein Bender & Romanoff obtains a significant confidential settlement for the suicide of a man while inpatient at a hospital for suicidal ideation. The hospital defended the action saying it was the man’s fault. However, a former employee blew the whistle on the defense, and the hospital settled shortly thereafter.
Settlement 550,000.00 Dollars
Goldstein Bender & Romanoff obtains a significant settlement as a result of back injuries sustained in successive car accidents months apart. Each defendant blamed the other for the injuries, but Goldstein, Bender & Romanoff claimed indivisible injuries, and Plaintiff prevailed.
Settlement 325,000.00 Dollars
Goldstein Bender & Romanoff obtains a significant settlement for a 75 year old man who sustained a back injury when he slipped and fell on a natural accumulation of ice. Illinois provides that landowners have no duty to remove natural accumulations of ice and snow. However, the attorneys at Goldstein, Bender & Romanoff filed suit alleging a breach of contract claim based on the Plaintiff’s status as a third party beneficiary to a snow and ice removal contract that contained a provision requiring the area to be completely clear of ice and snow. After repeated and hotly contested motion practice, the Defendants settled the cause after the presiding judge found that Illinois law supported Plaintiff’s novel theory.
Settlement 265,000.00 Dollars
With only $17,000.00 in medical treatment, Goldstein Bender & Romanoff recovered $265,000.00 for a 75 year old woman who was diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia after being hit by a car while walking in a cross-walk.
