Written on Friday, October 3, 2014

From January through May of 2014, Naulty, Scaricamazza & McDevitt attorney Robert E. Dillon obtained defense verdicts in the following five matters:

In January of 2014, Mr. Dillon obtained a defense verdict in case tried in Montgomery County on behalf of a podiatrist. It was alleged that the patient suffered from significant pain and ambulatory dysfunction from improper surgical and post-operative care of a heel fracture.

Also in January of 2014, Mr. Dillon obtained a defense verdict in case tried in Lebanon County on behalf of General Surgeon. The plaintiff claimed that the patient had experienced continued suffering and the need for additional surgeries following a procedure to remove the gallbladder and a repair of the diaphragm.

In March of 2014 in a case tried in Bucks County, Mr. Dillon obtained a defense verdict on behalf of a podiatrist. It was alleged that there was a failure to diagnose and treat a fracture of the ankle, which resulted in a delayed procedure that caused long term problems with the plaintiff's ambulatory function and the probable need for a fusion of the ankle in the future.

Again in March of 2014, Mr. Dillon obtained a defense verdict in case tried in Northampton County (Easton) on behalf of podiatrist. The plaintiff's attorney contended that the podiatrist misdiagnosed the patient with a bone infection, which resulted in the unnecessary amputation of the patient’s big toe causing ambulatory dysfunction.

In May of 2014, Mr. Dillon obtained a defense verdict in case tried in Philadelphia County on behalf of a nursing home. It was alleged that the nursing home provided improper care and treatment to a patient who suffered a cardiac arrest that resulted in an untimely death.
