We're thrilled to announce a significant victory for our clients and our firm! Theresa Powell, Heyl Royster's Springfield Office Managing Partner, and firm Associate Anthony Lucchesi secured a defense verdict in Sangamon County on behalf of her client - an ISMIE-insured orthopedic surgeon. The case involved allegations of negligence in assessing and treating a patient for potential compartment syndrome in the context of a critically ill patient following the removal of the ECMO cannula following a prolonged period of ischemia. The plaintiff asked the jury to enter a verdict over $7 million. This victory, a testament to Theresa and Anthony's skill and dedication, has brought immense relief and justice to our client. Congratulations to Theresa and Anthony on a hard-fought victory!
