Featured Case Results

Nursing Home Malpractice
In May 2017, a Bexar County jury rendered a $13,800,000 verdict in favor of our Client after he was catastrophically injured at a skilled nursing facility. The jury found that the Defendant-Nursing-Home was responsible for Client's permanent paralysis, because the Nursing Home repeatedly failed to communicate critical information to the treating physicians, which would have easily prevented our Client from becoming paralyzed.

Hospital Malpractice
In March 2017, we obtained a $3,00,000 settlement on behalf of our Client who was paralyzed in an Iowa state hospital after his treating physicians failed to fully investigate the life-threatening bleeding in his GI tract.  The result his case now serves to protect future patients by helping change the hospital's dangerous policies.
