PROFESSIONAL MALPRACTICE

 

          Representation of plaintiffs and defendants in claims against professionals, including attorneys, engineers, accountants, insurance brokers and healthcare providers.

          The following are examples of our representation in this practice area:

            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.

            The Firm 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.

            The Firm 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.

            We 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.

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

            We obtained an eight figure settlement in a legal malpractice action against two prominent law firms for damages sustained by our client due to the firms’ delayed processing of patent filings.

            When our clients’ multi-million dollar home was gutted by fire and their insurance proved inadequate, Sprague & Sprague brought suit against and obtained a favorable settlement from their insurance broker who had misrepresented the extent of the coverage.

            Sprague & Sprague has also successfully handled medical malpractice cases involving obstetrical injuries.
