SL Chapman LLC, a law firm concentrating in personal injury, obtained a settlement for a client who sustained life changing injuries to her right shoulder and arm.

The defendant was represented by attorney Jim Neville.

SL Chapman filed suit on behalf of Ronda Berkemeier against Dr. William Sprich, a Belleville neurosurgeon, for injuries she suffered during a cervical surgery. "The damages have left Ms. Berkemeier's right shoulder and arm practically unusable," said SL Chapman partner and top injury attorney Paul Johnson. In his opening statement, Johnson highlighted the severity of the trauma, noting, "He (Dr. Sprich) caused irreparable damage to Ronda Berkemeier for the rest of her life."

The settlement was reached immediately before the defendant, Dr. Sprich, was set to take the stand and testify. Details of the settlement are confidential. SL Chapman Managing Partner Robert Schmieder noted, "Paul and Rob did a fantastic job vigorously advocating for Ms. Berkemeier.
