Medical Malpractice Case Settles for Over $1 Million

Gary Burger settled a medical malpractice case for over $1 million. Our client, Kelly Sinn, was diagnosed with, but not properly treated for, a brain aneurysm. Kelly went to a Southern Illinois emergency room and the ER doctor diagnosed a recent brain aneurysm Kelly had as a “thunderclap” headache or the worst headache of your life. She had problems for a few days before she was brought into the emergency room. The doctor there did brain tests and found an aneurysm, but did not do a spinal tap to assess whether it was still bleeding, keep her for observation or refer her to a neurosurgeon, which is the standard of care. Two days later the aneurysm ruptured again causing brain damage.

When an aneurysm happens, immediate treatment is needed to prevent further bleeding and brain damage. Fortunately, Kelly has made a good recovery and lives at home with her father. We were able to file suit and aggressively pursue this case and obtain the full insurance policy limits for Kelly. In addition, we worked with the family to put the money in a trust so that Kelly can continue to get benefits to help her for medical care for the rest of her life. This is called a Supplemental Needs Trust, and it puts the money in a trust for needs that are supplemental, or in addition to, the needs provided by Medicaid. Gary could not be more proud. He has a lot of gratitude for being able to help Kelly and her family. They’re very good, honest and kind people who deserved good, aggressive and honest representation. Thank you to the Sinn family.
