Firm Obtains Two Med Mal Defense Verdicts on Same Day


Heyl Royster is pleased to report that on the same day in late September our Springfield and Rockford offices obtained defense verdicts in contested medical malpractice claims. 

Adrian Harless and Tyler Robinson, of the firm's Springfield office, successfully defended a case in Adams County (Quincy, Illinois) in which plaintiffs asked the jury for an amount in excess of $3 million. 

In Winnebago County (Rockford, Illinois), Doug Pomatto and Mike Denning obtained a defense verdict for a general surgeon in a case involving damages associated with a significant post-surgical complication to the bowel. At issue were more than $500,000 in medical bills. The plaintiff's counsel asked the jury to return a verdict in excess of $1 million.
