            The Firm recovered a seven figure verdict in New Jersey state court on behalf of a client who was a passenger in a vehicle driven by her spouse, who lost control of their vehicle, causing it to crash into the front of a trash truck on the side of the road.

            Sprague & Sprague successfully tried a neurosurgical, medical malpractice case involving the wrongful death of a young mother of two children. A seven figure recovery was secured for the children following a trial and appeals by opposing parties through Pennsylvania’s state courts.

            We successfully tried a medical malpractice case involving the wrongful death of a young family man who underwent gastroenterological surgery. A multi-million dollar settlement was obtained on behalf of the decedent’s family just before closing arguments to the jury following a two-week trial.

            The Firm successfully tried a medical malpractice case against a health clinic which failed to properly treat our diabetic client’s foot condition. A substantial monetary settlement was recovered for our client following trial.

            We obtained a significant monetary settlement in a medical malpractice case arising from the performance of an invasive cardiac procedure.

            Sprague & Sprague obtained a seven figure recovery on behalf of a family as a result of the negligent transmission of the AIDS virus by a health care facility.

            The Firm obtained a multi-million dollar settlement from a trucking company on behalf of the estate of a passenger in a vehicle that collided with the company’s jackknifed tractor-trailer.

            We successfully defended a major multinational truck leasing corporation in a wrongful death case brought by the estate of a woman killed in an accident caused by the lessee’s misuse of a leased vehicle.

            Sprague & Sprague successfully tried a medical malpractice case involving the wrongful death of a 76 year old man who underwent colo-rectal surgery and subsequently developed a total breakdown of his anastomosis (the surgical connection of his small bowel), resulting in septic shock, a severe stroke and ultimately his death. A state court jury returned a verdict in favor of the Firm's client in the amount of $6.5 million, one of the largest medical malpractice verdicts in the state for the wrongful death of a person more than 75 years old.
