Healthcare Group Obtains a “Hat Trick” of Defense Verdicts in One Week
In a one-week time span, three of our healthcare lawyers received defense verdicts for their clients. Anna Bryan received a defense verdict in Montour County, Pa., in a three-week trial regarding the care and treatment of a 48-year-old woman who died in the hospital following uncomplicated surgery for breast cancer which had been diagnosed about four months earlier. Platte Moring received a defense verdict in Northampton County, Pa., in a case involving an orthopedic surgeon who performed an open reduction, internal fixation of a trimalleolar fracture of the left ankle, requiring a revision surgery due to non-compliance with doctor’s orders. Kevin Cottone obtained a defense verdict in Montgomery County, Pa., in a medical malpractice case after a two-week trial.
