Successfully mediated a personal injury settlement for a hard-working, 65-year-old woman who collided with an 18-wheeler on her way to work. A long-time, reliable bookkeeper for a reputable business, this loyal employee recovered the property and personal injury losses created by the truck driver’s recklessness.
On the eve of jury selection, Shaw Law successfully settled this personal injury lawsuit after extensive depositions and discovery. A wife, mother and computer-aided designer in the oil and gas industry went to the hospital with a kidney stone, though her condition was undiagnosed by the hospital medical team, leaving a widespread infection to consume her body. The failure to properly monitor the patient led to this Medical Malpractice case dealing with the misdiagnoses of the patient’s condition and failure to properly monitor. This otherwise healthy woman wound up a quadruple amputee as a result of the hospital’s conduct.
Negotiated a personal injury settlement during jury selection for a 31-year-old woman who suffered a fourth-degree vaginal tear during childbirth. The tear was quickly and improperly repaired right after birth. After an infection set in, instead of getting an expert and allowing the infection to heal, the tear was improperly re-repaired again in haste. Some of the healthy tissue was re-approximated or cut out in the second botched repair. Eventually a colorectal surgeon was sought out independently by client, but client was left with significant long- term and disabling damage. This young mother was unable to effectively perform her job being incontinent of bowel. This young marriage fell apart under the pressure. She received compensation for her losses through a negotiation that prevented her from enduring the duress of a long jury trial.
