Landmark Medical Malpractice Judgment

Thursday, January 27, 2005 - "Family wins one of largest medical malpractice judgments in Ottawa history."

Mr. Cogan was recently successful in obtaining one of the largest medical malpractice judgments in Ottawa. The case involved the events surrounding the birth of Peter Trajdos in June 1993. As a result of the delivery, Peter suffered severe physical and cognitive impairments. After a lengthy trial, Judgment was rendered in December 2003 in favour of the Plaintiffs. The Court awarded a total of $5.23 million for general damages, future loss of income and future care costs for Peter and his family.

The Defendants appealed the decision. Prior to the appeal being heard, the parties reached a confidential settlement in August 2004.
