Shay & Associates is proud to say that we have settled our client’s medical malpractice case for $3,000,000.00.

This settlement was against a Central Illinois medical provider. The nurse practitioner failed to recognize the urgency of our client’s medical condition that led to paraplegia just hours after he was discharged from the facility. Timothy Shay and Graham Ogilvy had been prosecuting this claim since 2017 and were preparing the suit for a jury trial, even through Covid mitigations. Shay & Associates retained nationally known expert witnesses in the fields of neurosurgery, radiology, family practice  and nurse practitioners. We sought out  experts from as far away as New York City and Phoenix, Arizona.

We are certainly thankful for our client. He is elated for the good resolution of his case so that he may purchase a home, a wheelchair accessible van and be taken care of for the remainder of his life.
