$700,000.00 in June 2018 settlement for a roofer who he fell off a ladder and fractured his right leg. The fracture was on the top of his shin bone in the knee joint. Plaintiff was treated by orthopedic surgeons at Stroger Hospital. The fractured bone was not in its proper position as shown in x-rays. Instead of recommending surgery to correct the positions of the fracture fragments, the doctors instead put his leg into a cast. The bones healed in the wrong position. The miss-aligned bone fragments caused arthritis to develop in the knee joint. Due to the arthritis, Plaintiff had his knee joint replaced with an artificial one. Although the knee replacement surgery improved his ability to walk, he cannot return to his former job as a roofer or any job requiring physical activity. We contended that the Plaintiffs doctors negligently failed to recommend immediate surgery to re-align the fracture fragments and to secure them with a plate and screws. We contended further that if surgery had been done right away, he could have avoided knee replacement surgery and returned to work. Cook County on behalf of Stroger Hospital and its doctors agreed to pay.
