Before joining Lewis Brisbois, Andrew helped achieve numerous favorable outcomes for Philadelphia-area health care providers involved in medical malpractice cases. The following are just a few of his recent success stories:
- Assisted lead trial counsel in successfully obtaining a defense verdict on behalf of a psychiatrist in a Chester County medical malpractice case. The case involved claims of extreme lithium toxicity and failure to monitor that resulted in severe and permanent cognitive deficits. The pre-trial demand was $4 million. Complicating the case were allegations of forged and altered medical records and key witness credibility issues.
- Assisted lead trial counsel in successfully obtaining a defense verdict on behalf of two physicians and a rehabilitation facility in a Lehigh County medical malpractice case. The case involved an alleged failure to diagnose and treat a femoral fracture, which developed during the patient’s post-operative rehabilitation following bilateral knee replacement surgery.
- Assisted lead trial counsel in successfully obtaining a defense verdict in a Philadelphia medical malpractice case on behalf of a primary care physician. The case involved an alleged failure to timely diagnose and treat a carcinoid tumor, which resulted in widespread metastasis and death of a 51-year-old patient.
- Successfully obtained summary judgment on behalf of a Philadelphia hospital in a case involving an alleged failure to diagnose and treat a post-operative joint infection. The case involved an issue of first impression under Pennsylvania law regarding Certificates of Merit.
