Chicago, November 2, 2023 – For the eighth consecutive year, Levin & Perconti has earned a top ten spot on Jury Verdict Reporter’s annual Settlements Report. The firm won settlements for its clients totaling over $55 million between August 1, 2022, and July 31, 2023, according to the 2023 JVR Settlements Report.
Levin & Perconti was recognized for 41 settlements, including an $8 million settlement in a medical malpractice and wrongful death case involving a female patient who died of sepsis when medical providers failed to timely treat hydronephrosis. This is the largest settlement in Illinois history involving a woman in her 60’s in a medical malpractice wrongful death case.
Achieving the $55 million in settlements reported by Jury Verdict Reporter was a collective effort by the Levin & Perconti team and included attorneys John J. Perconti, Steven M. Levin, Margaret P. Battersby Black, Michael F. Bonamarte, IV, Megan O’Connor, Michael L. Shanahan, Blake W. Gibney, Daniel A. Goldfaden, Abby Marshall, Jaime Koziol Delaney, Nicholas Emerson, Daniel J. Broderick, Andrew J. Thut, Lauren E. Park, Isabela Bacidore, Kelly Sabo Gaden, Danielle Downey, Susan L. Novosad, Gabriel Aprati, Kara Rockey, Paul Connery, and Lisa M. Ciharan.
The firm is proud of the work it accomplished on behalf of its clients leading to a top ten ranking in JVR’s annual Settlements Report. However, the report only takes into account cases that were settled which captures just a fraction of the firm’s work. For example, in a March 2023 trial, firm attorneys obtained a record $40 million verdict from a Coles County, Illinois jury in a birth injury case. This is the highest reported medical malpractice verdict in Illinois outside of Cook County and the highest verdict ever in Coles County history.
