$1.83 Million for a 27-year-old woman who had a sponge left inside her body during a partial hysterectomy to treat endometriosis. The infection led to further surgeries and the loss of part of her colon and all of her internal sex organs. This case resulted in a $1.305 million record high Kane County verdict. Our attorneys appealed, claiming that the jury failed to award certain damages. The case subsequently settled for $1.83 million.
