Past Case Results

Cerebral Palsy Settlement Out of State

Ever the champion for injured children across the country, Jeffrey Rasansky achieved a multi-million dollar settlement for a neurologically devastated child in Idaho. This little girl was injured as a result of a nurse-midwife’s improper maneuvers performed during labor and delivery, as well as by the failure of other nurses to act when the child’s health was at a critical crossroads. Hotly contested deposition testimony revealed that this nurse midwife and hospital nurses were clearly in over their heads, yet inexplicably failed to notify the physician before the situation spiraled out of their control, leaving this child without oxygen for a significant period of time and causing an irreversible brain injury. As a result of this settlement, this wheelchair-bound child will be able to receive necessary therapy sessions, home modifications, medical devices, and other items she will need throughout the course of her lifetime. (Gross Recovery of $4,500,000, with $2,325,345.46 going to the child and her family, after attorneys? fees and litigation expenses of $1,949,495.73 were withheld, along with payment of a medical lien of 225,158.81)

Strangulation Entrapment Death Case

As a participant in the fight against preventable hospital bed and siderail entrapment deaths across the country, the Rasansky Law Firm fought and achieved a seven figure settlement on behalf of a husband and three children of a physically impaired woman suffering from Alzheimers and who was primarily confined to her hospital bed. The bed and side-rail manufacturer, distributor, and durable medical equipment supplier (which filled the prescription for the bed), all knew that this elderly woman possessed several known risk factors for entrapment death, yet failed to warn her or her family of the associated risks, and failed to take steps to design a safer hospital bed and side-rail system. While it is the hope of the Rasansky Law Firm that hospital bed manufacturers and distributors will act responsibly and ensure that entrapments become ancient history, the Rasansky Law Firm continues to fight against irresponsible manufacturers and distributors. (Gross Recovery of $1,200,000, with $600,000 going to the family of the deceased, after attorneys? fees and litigation expenses of $600,000 were withheld)

Cows In the Road

The Rasansky Law Firm recovered $950,000 for a retired Fort Worth-area farmer who was horribly injured after his vehicle collided into several cows that had been negligently allowed to roam onto a public highway in Wise County. Traveling down the dark roadway, the cows were virtually invisible until far too late. After suffering traumatic brain injuries and falling into a coma for more than a month, he was forced to endure months of rigorous and grueling inpatient therapy. Through a great amount of research and investigation, the Rasansky Law Firm was able to defeat the defenses that were offered by the defendant’s attorneys and force them to accept full liability for allowing the animals onto the roadway that night. As a result of the recovery in this matter, our client returned to life on his small farm, able to afford the care and services that he now requires. (Gross Recovery of $955,000, with $388,202.58 going to the family of the deceased, after attorneys? fees and litigation expenses of $366,797.42 were withheld, along with payment of a medical lien of $200,000.)

Policy Limit Settlement

When an elderly pedestrian was struck by a negligent driver in a retail parking lot, he turned to the Rasansky Law Firm for help. Having suffered massive head trauma and being forced to undergo emergency surgery for his brain injury, he needed the expertise and experience that Jeff Rasansky offered to recover for his mounting medical expenses. Going after the negligent defendant and the insurance companies involved with everything they had, the Rasansky Law Firm was able to reach a settlement for the maximum policy limits involved. (Gross Recovery of $250,000, with $113,552.18 going to the victim, after attorneys? fees and litigation expenses of $96,767.38 were withheld, along with payment of a medical lien of $39,680.44.)

Court of Appeals ? Rasansky Reverses Trial Court Ruling on Statute of Limitations

In a significant victory for Plaintiffs throughout the state of Texas, the Rasansky Law Firm successfully won the appeal of a Dallas District Court Judge’s holding in granting of a defendant’s summary judgment. The key issue upon appeal was the diligence of our client (acting pro se at the time) in securing the successful service of process upon the defendant after filing a lawsuit on the date that his statute of limitations expired. Due to a delay by the District Clerk in attempting service and subsequent failure to notify the Plaintiff that service via register mail was unsuccessful, the Plaintiff was unable to secure proper service for almost three months. The Defendant argued that the established requirement under Texas law, a plaintiff act with diligence in securing service upon a defendant after the statute of limitations runs, was not met in this case. The District Court Judge agreed, and granted the Defendant’s summary judgment. Taking the issue up on appeal, the Rasansky Law Firm argued that there was sufficient evidence of diligence that was exercised by our client, and that the case law relied upon by Defendant in his Motion for Summary Judgment was not controlling based on the differences in facts between our client’s actions and those actions taken by plaintiffs in the only other cases on record in Texas on this issue. The 5th District Court of Appeals agreed with our argument, and reversed the Trial Court’s holding and remanded the suit back to the Court for trial. After striking the final blow and establishing the intention to fight every step of the way, the Rasansky Law Firm was shortly thereafter able to obtain a settlement offer from the Defendant for our client.

Governmental Immunity

Despite significant restrictions on plaintiffs in the state of Texas who seek to recover on claims against government entities, the Rasansky Law Firm was able to recover the maximum allowable statutory limit against the Wichita Falls ISD on behalf of a gentleman that was severely injured by the negligence of an employee of the school district. While driving his motorcycle to work one early morning, our client was struck by a maintenance worker for the district who was on duty, when the worker failed to yield the right of way while making an unprotected left hand turn at an intersection. After being air lifted all the way to Dallas from Wichita Falls for trauma care, and having been told that he had no right to recovery based on official immunity for the school district, the injured man contacted the Rasansky Law Firm to go to bat for him. Despite the hurdles that now stand in the way of the wrongfully injured because of the efforts of Tort Reform, the Rasansky Law Firm was able to hold the school district accountable and recover the full amount allowed under current Texas law. Such hurdles aside, the Rasansky Law Firm continues the fight against inequitable measures and ’tort reforms? that serve the interests of insurance companies at the expense of destroying the rights of the injured.

Obstetrical and Nursing Negligence

Jeff Rasansky's diligence in helping children who needlessly struggle with cerebral palsy has made history over the years in Texas. In 2001, Jeff Rasansky had the top medical malpractice settlement in the state of Texas. In this case involving obstetrical and nursing negligence and the failure to respond to non-reassuring fetal monitor strips, Jeff Rasansky elicited testimony from a nurse who admitted to turning off the alarm on the fetal monitor strips, all while the child's heart rate deteriorated. (Gross Recovery of $11,000,000, with $7,137,570.46 going to the child and her family, after attorneys? fees and litigation expenses of $3,850,000 were withheld, along with payment of a medical lien of $12,429.54)

Obstetrical and Nursing Negligence

While physicians must act appropriately when faced with perilous labors, nurses are charged with the responsibility to properly inform physicians of dangerous signs during the labor and delivery process. When those nurses and physicians fail to properly communicate, lives are on the line and the Rasansky Law Firm protects the innocent victims of such failed communication, such as this case. (Gross Recovery of $3,000,000, with $1,629,657.96 going to the child and her family, after attorneys? fees and litigation expenses of $1,244,754.30 were withheld, along with payment of a medical lien of $125,587.74)

Obstetrical and Nursing Negligence

Even in spite of his many years of experience handling obstetrical and nursing malpractice, the outrageous acts of negligence and gross negligence still shock Jeff Rasansky. In this case, despite considerable problems with the status of her unborn child, a mother was allowed to continue to labor, and was even given medication to force her labor. As precious minutes ticked by, this child developed a progressive and devastating brain injury. (Gross Recovery of $2,725,000, with $1,560,546.78 going to the child and her family, after attorneys? fees and litigation expenses of $1,152,959.65 were withheld, along with payment of a medical lien of $11,493.57)

Nursing Home Negligence

Always a champion for the elderly, Jeffrey Rasansky has had outstanding results when standing up against nursing homes and their greedy corporate owners. In this nursing home negligence case, a resident suffered from an infection in his subclavian catheter. As a result, he developed an infection in his bloodstream and died. (Gross Recovery of $825,000, with $408,889.65 going to the family of the deceased, after attorneys? fees and litigation expenses of $412,500 were withheld, along with payment of a medical lien of $3,604.35)

Nursing Home and Physician Negligence

By speaking up for those whose voices would not otherwise be heard, Jeffrey Rasansky has helped make changes in nursing home policies and procedures. In this case, a nursing home negligently overdosed the medication of an elderly resident, which caused an inability to breathe properly and ultimately caused his death. (Gross Recovery of $1,290,000, with $724,537.96 going to the family of the deceased, after attorneys? fees and litigation expenses of $555,462.04 were withheld, along with payment of a medical lien of $10,000.00)

Jury Verdict - Plastic Surgery and Anesthesiologist Negligence

The Rasansky Law Firm obtained a jury verdict against a plastic surgeon and anesthesiologist who failed to read and interpret a patient's pre-operative EKG and ignored obvious signs of danger. As a result, during what should have been ordinary and routine eyelid surgery turned deadly as the patient had a cardiac arrest and died during the procedure. (Gross Recovery of $1,190,848.95, with $558,431.53 going to the family of the deceased, after attorneys? fees and litigation expenses of $622,417.42 were withheld, along with payment of a medical lien of $10,000.00)

Obstetrical and Nursing Negligence

As is too often the case, the proverb of "too little, too late" can cause devastating results in the labor and delivery process. Unfortunately for this child, the nurses and physicians allowed this labor to continue to progress in the face of considerable danger. Too little was done for the laboring mom and her child and that negligence caused a horrific brain injury. (Gross Recovery of $2,550,000, with $558,431.53 going to the child and her injured family, after attorneys? fees and litigation expenses of $923,546.80 were withheld)

Nursing Home Negligence

While there are many acts of negligence prosecuted by the Rasansky Law Firm against nursing homes, one of the most common and unfortunate is the failure of a nursing home to timely and appropriately change a resident's catheter. In addition to outrageous and preventable pain and suffering, such horrific catheter care can lead to infections and death, as it did in this case. (Gross Recovery of $925,000.00, with $526,898.77 going to the family of the deceased, after attorneys? fees and litigation expenses of $396,106.70 were withheld, along with payment of a medical lien of $1,994.53)

Jury Verdict - Auto Accident

The outrageous negligence of a drunk driver led to yet another million dollar verdict for the Rasansky Law Firm. Our client also received significant settlements from the establishments who continued to serve this obviously drunk patron, all while his blood alcohol level climbed higher and higher. The drunk driver ran a red light, and caused a violent impact so devastating no one on the scene could believe our client ultimately survived. He was on life support for weeks, all while his fianc? was faced with the unimaginable possibility of having to remove his life support. Thankfully, our client turned a corner and slowly but surely improved, after months of reconstructive surgeries, painful therapy visits, and multiple transfers from one medical facility to another. It is the hope of the Rasansky Law Firm that verdicts and settlements such as this one will be a lesson to other potential drunk drivers and their servers, but the Rasansky Law Firm will be there to prosecute the claims of those who have been injured by such inexcusable conduct. Following the entry of the Judgment by the Court, the Rasansky Law Firm is aggressively pursuing the Judgment against this drunk driver to help serve as a constant reminder of his outrageous actions.
