You Deserve an Insider's Expertise On Your Side

A Record Verdict of $33.5 Million A Case Other Attorneys Turned Away

Jordan, who showed signs of fetal stress, should have been delivered swiftly after his mother arrived at the Tennessee hospital. Instead, delivery was planned for nearly five hours later. And then, even that target was missed by 79 minutes.
 
When Jordan was finally delivered, it was into a life diminished by crushing disabilities: catastrophic brain damage and cerebral palsy. A life in which Jordan would require around-the-clock care. 
 
Justice did not come swift and it was not easy. Other attorneys declined the case, likely because they thought it would be too difficult. It’s common knowledge that confronting the multi-billion dollar insurance industry and their medical clients is a David and Goliath story.
 
But with lead trial attorney Mr. Offutt heading the charge, justice did prevail and the Tennessee jury awarded a record-breaking $33.5 million to cover Jordan's future health care costs and other damages.

"Steve didn't stop until he uncovered the truth about Jordan's birth injury."

A Record Verdict in Minnesota ...

In Minnesota, Mr. Offutt won a $15.5 million verdict on behalf of Dhevyn, an infant needlessly injured at birth and a victim of cerebral palsy. Like Jordan, Dhevyn requires round-the-clock care for the rest of his life.

  • Don't wait too long to seek legal help. You only have a limited window of time to file a claim.
