Suit Challenges Illinois Caps on Damage Awards

Comments Off

My colleague Jeffrey M.Goldberg, a nationally-renowned trial attorney who is an expert in birth injury cases, has filed a medical malpractice suit in Illinois on behalf of a child born with cerebral palsy and severe brain damage as the result of a mismanaged labor and delivery. The suit seeks fair compensation for the child and his family, but argues that fair compensation can only be provided if the Illinois courts declare unconstitutional the law passed by the Illinois legislature in August 2005 limiting pain, suffering, and disability awards in medical malpractice cases to $500,000 per doctor and $1 million per hospital.

Jeff Goldberg is an energetic and extremely effective advocate for victims of medical malpractice, and is a former president of the Trial Lawyers for Public Justice, a national law firm that specializes in precedent setting and socially significant litigation designed to secure a better society. I am sure that he will wage a strong fight in this important struggle to protect the rights of innocent victims to obtain fair compensation in the Illinois courts.
