Tunnat v. Defendant Electrophysiologist


Defendant Electrophysiologist


Defense Verdict


A Cook County jury returned a verdict in favor of the firm’s client, a nationally reknown electrophysiologist (a specialist in cardiac arrythmias).

The case involved the performance of a cardiac ablation on a three year old boy. A complication occurred during the ablation procedure which left the boy with permanent heart block and the need for a surgically implanted pacemaker for the rest of his life.

The attorney representing the young boy requested a verdict in the amount of $7 million. The case was tried from October 5 until October 22, 2007 and the verdict was for the defense.
