Victories

Clore Law Group, LLC has had many legal victories, in various states and in cases across the country, involving: automobile and truck wrecks, medical malpractice, defective medical devices, harmful drugs, workplace and construction injuries, toxic and chemical exposures, or sexual or physical assaults.  The firm has won jury verdicts and settlements for multi-millions of dollars, and our attorney victories exceed 200 million dollars.

Our Charleston attorneys, serving clients not only in South Carolina but also in a number of states across the country, understand that in some situations you need solid proof to place your trust in an individual, concept, or company. Legal representation is one of these areas. For this reason, and so that you can appreciate what types of situations may be legally actionable, we have included examples of cases we have handled. Results obtained in specific cases depend on various factors that are unique to each case, and many of the results or details are not listed for various reasons, including confidentiality, but the information below may help you better understand our strong legal abilities and our successes in various catastrophic and complex cases.

We are proud of the following victories, which we have obtained for our clients as the result of our devotion to them and to their causes, as well as our extensive legal experience—a combined amount of over 50 years. But any prior results achieved on behalf of one client in one matter does not necessarily indicate, and cannot be relied upon to mean, that similar results can be obtained for other clients or in similar cases.

Maternal Seizure, Fetal Distress & Delayed Delivery

A young woman pregnant with her first child was admitted a hospital for delivery. She had a childhood history of seizures, known to the caregivers, but had not had a seizure in many years. During labor, which can increase the risk of seizures, she had a severe seizure, and the fetus’ heart rate began to drop. Even though the mother was given Valium and the seizure ended after a couple of minutes, the fetal heart rate and pattern continued to deteriorate. The baby girl was not delivered for about 40 minutes after the seizure ended, with the result that she suffered HIE, massive brain injury, quadriplegia, and ultimately cerebral palsy due to the lack of oxygen during that time. Suit was brought against the hospital and its on-call employee obstetrician, alleging that he negligently refused to perform a C-section once the seizure ended, when it was desperately needed to rescue the baby. Clore Law Group, LLC tried the case to jury verdict in Chicago, Illinois over the course of 6 weeks or so, and the jury verdict was against the hospital and in favor of the woman and her child for $17,070,000.

Uterine Rupture, Fetal Distress, & Delayed Delivery

A middle-aged pregnant mother was admitted to a hospital in labor. She was given the labor-inducing drug, Pitocin, by a hospital nurse to help speed it along, even though there was no doctor’s order to give the drug and the mother was already having peak contractions when it was given. The results was that within several minutes after Pitocin was given, the mother had a rupture of her uterus (womb) and the fetus went without oxygen for a prolonged period of time as a result, before a C-section could be performed. The baby suffered HIE, severe brain injury, significant paralysis (quadriplegia), and cerebral palsy due to a lack of oxygen after the uterine rupture and before the birth.  Mark Clore and a colleague tried the case in Houston, Texas over several weeks, and the jury rendered a verdict was against the hospital and in favor of the woman and her child for $12,700,000. After a long appeal, the case subsequently settled for a confidential amount.

Drunk Company Driver / Death

A drunk driver was speeding late at night near an International Airport. At a high rate of speed he hit our client’s motorcycle that was stopped at a traffic light. The drunk driver was in a company vehicle at the time. The innocent motorcyclist who was just getting off work near the airport was tragically killed. The lawsuit against the company of the drunk driver was ultimately settled by Clore Law Group, LLC, confidentially in the widow’s favor.

Police Chase Wreck / Death

A middle-aged lady was killed during a high-speed chase  by police who were pursuing a suspected burglar when the police SUV crashed into her. The lady was on her way to a funeral, with a green light ahead of her, when the police vehicle T-boned her car at an intersection and when the light was red for the police. The woman suffered severe injuries, including broken bones, and a brain stem tear; she was pronounced dead upon arrival to the hospital. A law firm in Chicago hired the Clore Law Group, LLC to jointly prosecute the case with them for the deceased lady and her estate. By the time of trial, the City-defendant did not contest responsibility for the wreck, or the woman’s death, but did fight the amount of compensation or damages. Clore Law Group, LLC tried this part of the case, along with Chicago co-counsel, to a Judge in Chicago, Illinois, and the Court awarded a total verdict of $3.5 million for the women’s suffering and to her estate, which consisted of her adult siblings.

Resident Insertion of Nasogastric Tube Into Patient’s Brain

An elderly female had a successful surgery at a hospital for a benign pituitary (brain) tumor but developed some pneumonia after surgery. After she was readmitted to the hospital, a resident (i.e. a doctor in training to become a specialist) placed a nasogastric tube (NG) tube that was supposed to go through the nose, inside the food pipe and down into the stomach. It was alleged that immediately afterward, the patient began having signs of brain problems, and that what had really happened is the resident placed the NG tube not into the stomach but through the nose and into the brain cortex, thus resulting in her death from bleeding. Clore Law Group, LLC represented the family of the deceased woman and, despite significant limitations on damages under South Carolina law for this type of case, achieved a non-confidential settlement of $1,100,000.
