High-Profile Cases

A Successful Team You Can Trust

Through our decades in practice, our team at Theodoros & Rooth, P.C. has been involved in some high-profile cases and claims of note. We have highlighted one of these to give you an idea of the level of litigation we can handle and the type of opponent we can take on. Our success has fueled our reputation as hard-hitting Northwest Indiana personal injury attorneys who will do whatever it takes to protect the injured.

The Runaway Doctor

Theodoros & Rooth, P.C. founder Barry D. Rooth played a key role in a case involving Dr. Mark Weinberger, M.D., dubbed “The Runaway Doctor” by Vanity Fair. In this highly publicized case, Barry represented over 280 plaintiffs against Weinberger, who was accused of performing hundreds of unnecessary surgeries for financial gain. In 2004, Weinberger disappeared without a trace. It was 5 years before he was found, living in the Alps near Courmayeur, Italy. Extradited to the United States, he plead guilty to 22 counts of healthcare fraud. Barry secured a global settlement for his clients from the Indiana Patient’s Compensation Fund.

Widespread Cardiology Malpractice

Theodoros & Rooth – along with attorneys from Cohen & Malad P.C. – secured a $66.5 million settlement for 262 patients who sued Dr. Arvind Gandhi, Cardiology Associates of Northwest Indiana, and the Community Hospital of Munster for unnecessary cardiac surgeries and device implantations. The cases can be traced back to 2014 when the first 20 medical malpractice lawsuits against the defendants began to form. In only two years, the total number of eligible plaintiffs had exceeded 260. Although the defendants were able to deny any wrongdoing as part of the multimillion-dollar settlement agreement, claimants universally argued that the doctors and the hospital had conducted procedures that were not only excessive but also outside of the medical professionals’ qualifications. Due to confidentiality purposes, the full details of this landmark medical malpractice settlement cannot be disclosed.
