$5 Million Settlement For Young Burn Victim
Attorneys Pete Flowers and Craig Brown negotiated a settlement in the amount of five million dollars that makes certain a severely injured child will receive lifetime medical care.
Mary took her toddler, Dariusz, to a Chicago area emergency room after he suffered burns to his face and chest, when he accidentally spilled a cup of hot tea. The Emergency Room doctor failed to appreciate the severity of the burns and refused to transfer Dariusz to the burn unit at Loyola Hospital for specialized care.
As a result, Dariusz suffered a severe brain injury that would not have occurred if he had been transferred to the burn unit.
Attorneys Peter Flowers and Craig Brown were able to negotiate a $5 million settlement one week before trial.
