In the past few months, Naulty attorney Robert Dillon has obtained five (5) defense verdicts on behalf of healthcare providers.
In May of 2017, Mr. Dillon successfully defended a surgeon in a case held in Dauphin County. The plaintiff alleged that the surgeon negligently performed two (2) colonoscopies that failed to detect a cancerous tumor that eventually spread and caused the death of the patient. The Jury returned a verdict in favor of the defendant surgeon who had performed the colonoscopies.
In April of 2017, Mr. Dillon successfully defended a urologist in a case involving an allegation that the surgeon was responsible for improper surgery in order to correct a varicocele that resulted in the lost function of a testicle, decreased testosterone and sexual dysfunction of a forty (40) year old male. The Jury returned a verdict in favor of the urological surgeon.
In February of 2017, Mr. Dillon successfully defended two (2) podiatrists in a two and a half (2 1/2) week trial involving allegations that both podiatrists participated in a surgical procedure that resulted in the plaintiff developing nerve damage to her foot. The Jury returned a verdict in favor of both podiatric surgeons.
In November of 2016, Mr. Dillon successfully defended a podiatrist in Montgomery County concerning allegations that the defendant podiatrist misdiagnosed and improperly treated a patient who had developed an infection in the heel, which in turn caused years of disability, several surgeries and significant pain and discomfort. The Jury returned a verdict in favor of the defendant podiatrist.
In October of 2016, Mr. Dillon represented a podiatrist in Chester County in which it was alleged that the podiatrist mismanaged an infectious process that was developing in the patient’s foot, which in turn caused hospitalization, bone infection, surgery and a partial foot amputation. The Jury returned a verdict in favor of the defendant podiatrist.
