$4.52 Million Verdict - Misdiagnosed Breast Cancer

Upper gastrointestinal histopathological slides for a 38-year-old woman were misinterpreted at Adventist Hinsdale Hospital, resulting in the plaintiff’s stomach cancer not being properly diagnosed until 16 months later. The original slides showed Stage I adenocarcinoma (stomach cancer), and when the slides were properly diagnosed, the plaintiff was at stage III. As a result, the plaintiff was at a 56% chance of recurrence, although at trial, the plaintiff still had not had a recurrence.

Winters Salzetta O'Brien & Richardson, LLC Obtains $750,000 Settlement for Spine Injuries

Cook County - January 17, 2020

Attorney Timothy Richardson recently obtained a large settlement for a woman who suffered a serious spine injury in a car accident. Our client, a 43-year-old part-time teacher, was T-boned by an employee of a telecommunications company who failed to stop at a stop sign. The collision, which took place in September 2016 in Will County, resulted in an aggravation of her pre-existing spondylosis, a degenerative spinal condition involving bone spurs, degenerative discs between spinal vertebrae, and osteoarthritis. Due to these injuries, she required spinal surgery (anterior discectomy with fusion) nearly two years later in August 2018.

Mr. Richardson sought to hold the telecommunications company responsible for the injuries caused by their employee. While the defendant claimed that our client's surgery was unrelated to the accident, since she had seen a doctor for her cervical spine condition in the week before the accident, and surgery was recommended before the accident took place, they agreed to pay a settlement of $750,000.

Winters Salzetta O'Brien & Richardson, LLC Obtains $1.52 Million for Injured Construction Worker

Cook County - June 13, 2019

The personal injury lawyers of Winters Salzetta O'Brien & Richardson, LLC recently obtained a large settlement for a construction worker who was injured on the job. Our client, a 17-year-old who was working a summer job as a roofer, was injured when he tripped and fell through an unbarricaded skylight and onto a concrete floor. He fell about 20 feet and suffered head injuries, fractured ribs, and a lacerated liver. In addition to requiring significant medical care, he experienced deficits in brain processing speed, memory problems, and behavioral changes.

Our attorneys sought to hold both the building owner and the construction company responsible for our client's damages by claiming that he was injured because of the failure to provide proper fall protection and ensure that the skylight was properly barricaded. In the settlement, the property owner paid $1.5 million, and the construction company paid $24,000.
