On November 5th, 2015, Cavanagh Law Group obtained a $3 million wrongful death settlement for the family of a 26 year old man killed when he became entangled in an industrial machine. The case name is withheld because a defendant involved in the payout demanded settlement confidentiality. The case was pending in the Circuit Court of Cook County and was set for trial on November 12th, 2015.
Tim Cavanagh, founding partner of Cavanagh Law Group, stated: We are hopeful that this settlement will provide closure and a sense of justice for the family involved in the tragedy. They still have a lot of healing ahead of them. Benjeman Nichols, a Cavanagh Law Group partner who also prosecuted the case, stated: Had the manufacturer spent $14.82 to place a guard on the product, the young man would be alive today.
Cavanagh Law Group continues to obtain record settlements for clients in a variety of personal injury, medical malpractice, and wrongful death cases.
