Sample settlements and verdicts are useful tools in conjunction with other tools to help victims better understand at least the range of values in a medical malpractice case. Clearly, no two cases are the same and you cannot summarize a case in a paragraph.
Sometimes, I have tried or settled cases where there is no way I could summarize the case in a way that would explain why the plaintiff won or why the verdict was as high or low as it was.

If you have what appears to be an exactly identical case, the results could be very different. All of these verdicts are from 2014 to 2023. Illinois is a big state. A lot of cases go to trial here.
