The Cleveland Clinic

This is a settlement for the Medical Malpractice lawsuit.

Cuyahoga County, OH: (May-26-08) Elizabeth Elia of Solon brought a medical malpractice lawsuit against the Cleveland Clinic, alleging that negligence on the part of the facility resulted in her child being permanently brain damaged. Records indicate that a jury awarded Elizabeth Elia and her 6-year-old son Abram $15.9 million, which is said to be one of the largest verdicts ever in Cuyahoga County. Legal counsel of the plaintiff asked the court to approve a request for $4 million in legal fees and $430,000 in medical and legal expenses, resolving the medical malpractice suit with a $10 million payout. Sources stated that the jury that heard the two- week trial reached a $15.9 million verdict, but the lawyers settled the case before the verdict form was signed. Part of the settlement called for the verdict forms to remain sealed.
