Attorney John Hill of our Bethlehem Office successfully defended a podiatrist and two family physicians by obtaining back-to-back defense verdicts in two medical malpractice cases in the Lehigh Valley.
On September 21st, John obtained a defense verdict defending a local podiatrist who allegedly severed two tendons during an operation to stabilize a patient’s left ankle. John offered strong and convincing testimony from his client and highly respected experts to establish that the tendons spontaneously ruptured. The jury unanimously agreed.
On October 13th, John obtained a defense verdict from a Judge in Lehigh County in a Bench Trial/Arbitration when he successfully defended two family physicians who allegedly failed to timely diagnosis and treat a patient with TMJ resulting in the extraction of all of the patient’s natural teeth. John successfully convinced the Court that the patient had a pre-existing history of TMJ and that the patient’s own “negligence” contributed to the loss of her teeth.
