Suzanne Favia Gillen and Michelle Paveza successfully tried and defended a medical malpractice claim pending in KaneCounty. They defended a hematologist in a case involving the death of 78-year-old women who had been admitted to the hospital for complaints of weakness and a severely low platelet count. Two days after admission, and after undergoing treatment for idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), the patient suffered a massive stroke and died. At trial, the Estate claimed that the Doctor should have treated the patient for thrombotic thomobocytopenic purpura (TTP) instead. After a week of trial testimony, the jury returned a verdict in favor of the Doctor.
