On August 18, 2011, Cavanagh Law Group settled a dental malpractice case for $685,000 bringing the total recovery to $1 million. The case arose out of failed dental procedure that left a man with permanent pain. Tim Cavanagh and Matt Rundio, partners at Cavanagh Law Group, announced the settlement. Mr. Rundio stated, "With only one week remaining before the start of a trial in the case, the insurance company for the dentist finally did the right thing." Mr. Cavanagh stated, "We were prepared to call 18 witnesses to trial including several prominent doctors to testify that the dentist's negligence left our client permanently damaged."
Cavanagh Law Group has settled a wrongful death lawsuit for $6.3 million. The case arose out of a two-vehicle automobile crash that resulted in the death of a passenger in one of the cars. The lawsuit was litigated for 7 years and was appealed to the Illinois Appellate Court on two separate occasions. The name of the case is being withheld as several of the insurance companies involved in this record payout demanded confidentiality of the settlement. Tim Cavanagh, the founding partner of Cavanagh Law Group, stated: "The family is gratified that this case is finally resolved and that justice has been served. Their perseverance and courage in this lengthy litigation allowed Cavanagh Law Group to fully litigate the case and recover this record settlement."
