Daniel Cray and Benjamin Beringer were successful in a retrial of a medical negligence case in DuPage County, Illinois where they represented a neurologist and his neurology practice group. Husband and wife were plaintiffs in the suit stemming from a 2008 spinal cord infarct two days post cervical spine surgery which rendered the 49-year-old husband and father of two a quadriplegic. The wife, who sued for loss of consortium, has been her husband’s 24-hour-a-day care giver for the last 10 years. This case was first tried in April-May 2016 to a defense verdict. Both trials were 3 1/2 weeks in duration. Plaintiffs’ economic damages exceeded $10 million. Plaintiffs requested $39 million at the first trial, but they did not specify any total damages sum at the second trial.
