Levin & Perconti Recognized for Work on Medical Malpractice Cases
Levin & Perconti has been selected as a finalist by The National Law Journal’s 2019 Elite Trial Lawyers Award for their work on medical malpractice cases.
NLJ’s editors and reporters reviewed more than 300 submissions from lawyers and law firms from across more than 20 categories, seeking those who demonstrated repeated success in cutting-edge work on behalf of plaintiffs over the last 18 months. The selection committee was also looking for legal services with a solid track record of client wins over the past three to five years.
The Chicago medical malpractice attorneys at Levin & Perconti have spent nearly three decades fighting for victims of medical malpractice. From failure to inform a patient of a condition and appropriately counsel them on treatment, to missed or delayed diagnoses and medication errors, our attorneys have over 130 years of combined experience researching and litigating medical mistakes and have recovered more than $660 million for clients.
- C. v. Alexian Brothers Medical Group
$12M jury award for failure to diagnose lung cancer. A woman died of lung cancer three years after a chest x-ray from the St. Alexius Medical Center revealed an abnormality that doctors never told her about. This verdict is higher than any previously reported cancer-related wrongful death verdict or settlement. John Perconti, Mike Bonamarte, and Cari Silverman were the attorneys on the case.
- H. v. Northwestern Memorial Hospital
$14 million record high verdict against a doctor and hospital for not following and ignoring abnormal chest X-ray results, which caused a substantial delay in the diagnosis of lung cancer.
- N. for G.N. v. R.D. et al.
$17.7 million medical malpractice settlement for a former police officer who suffered a life-altering brain injury due to nursing staff negligence at a Chicago hospital.
- W. as Mother and Next Friend of S.W. v. Christ Hospital and Medical Center
$6.71 million verdict against a hospital because an inexperienced resident performed a vaginal delivery of a breech presentation (bottom first) resulting in shoulder dystocia and a crippling brachial plexus arm injury.
- G. as Administrator of the Estate of M.G. v. Mario Yu, M.D. et al.
$7.62 million verdict against an HMO doctor who disregarded the mother’s complaints of postpartum bleeding, which resulted in her bleeding to death.
The 2019 Elite Trial Lawyers winners are set to be announced at the Elite Trial Lawyers event on July 18, 2019, at Lotte New York Palace in New York City.
