Thevatheril, Anderson Earn Dismissal in Medical Negligence Case

Swanson, Martin & Bell, LLP partner Aiju C. Thevatheril and associate Laura Klement Anderson earned a dismissal for their client, a Chicago academic healthcare system, prior to jury selection.

The plaintiffs sued an obstetrician, her medical group and the healthcare system in Cook County Circuit Court. They alleged that the obstetrician used inappropriate maneuvers to deliver their son, damaging brachial plexus nerves that control his left arm when he was born. The medical center was dismissed during trial, right before jury selection, following advantageous evidence depositions and two days of motions in limine. Plaintiffs' counsel proceeded to trial only against the doctor, who was represented by another firm. 

Thevatheril and Anderson focus their practice in the defense of medical negligence claims.
