HPS obtains defense verdict for Chicago-area hospital – Plaintiff asked jury to award over $100M





David Hall, Kate Dzik, and Natalie Novak defended a Chicago-area hospital and its physicians against allegations of negligence related to the Plaintiff’s prenatal management and timing of delivery.

Plaintiff further alleged that the hospital’s negligence was the cause of the child’s permanent and profound brain damage.

The hospital and its doctors maintained that they fully complied with the standard of care, that the care provided was reasonable and appropriate and in conformance with evidence-based medicine, and that the care did not cause injury to the child.

The plaintiff asked the jury to award over $100 million dollars in damages.

The jury deliberated for approximately three hours before returning a verdict in favor of the hospital.
