Record-Breaking Medical Malpractice Verdicts

At The Beasley Firm, we are no stranger to medical malpractice litigation. In fact, we thrive in pursuing just compensation for the loved ones of those who have been injured by the very medical professionals they trusted to help them.

Some of our cases, like Incollingo v. Ewing and Pratt v. Stein, changed the law to better protect patients. Other cases set records, including the top two largest jury verdicts - $100 million and $55 million - and the largest punitive damages awarded in Pennsylvania medical malpractice cases.

Vlazny v. Cavarocci: The Largest Medical Malpractice Verdict in PA History

In Vlazny v. Cavarrocci, The Beasley Firm's Philadelphia medical malpractice attorneys secured the largest medical malpractice verdict in Pennsylvania history, involving an adult heart surgeon practicing on a newborn who required a relatively simple heart procedure. The surgeon was unfamiliar with the anatomy of a premature child (specifically, he didn't know how to locate a patent ductus arteriosus), and caused the infant to sustain brain damage and require the amputation of his arm. The family was awarded $100 million.

Gault v. Norwood: The Second-Largest Medical Malpractice Verdict in PA History

In another case, The Beasley Firm obtained the second largest medical malpractice verdict in history to the amount of $55 million. The Gault v. Norwood case was particularly challenging, because the case was against world-famous physician William Norwood, M.D. Our lawyers proved he had performed an unauthorized surgical procedure on Steven Gault, rendering Steve severely brain damaged and in permanent need of life long care.

  • Medical Malpractice $55,000,000

    2nd largest medical malpractice verdict in history.

  • Medical Malpractice $20,500,000

    Our firm used all its resources to obtain a highly publicized $20.5 million verdict for the family of a teenage woman.

Medical Malpractice FAQs

  • Q:What is medical malpractice?

    A:Medical malpractice or medical negligence means that a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare provider, acted in a way that deviated from the accepted standards of care, and that act or omission by the healthcare provider caused injury or death to a patient.

  • Q:Who can be sued for medical malpractice?

    A:Victims of medical malpractice can sue the doctor, nurse, surgeon, physician assistant (PA), anesthesiologist, OB doctor, midwife, pharmacist or nurse practitioner for acts of negligence. Additionally, an injured patient may also be able to sue the hospital, nursing home, physician practice group, medical teaching facility, or other corporate entities associated with those medical providers.

  • Q:I can't afford all the medical bills, how can I afford an attorney?

    A:Most plaintiff law firms handling injury cases will not charge you any money upfront to represent you. If you should receive an award, settlement or verdict, the attorney will subtract what it cost to work up your case and a small percentage fee upon conclusion of the case. If no award was received, you do not owe anything. The Beasley Firm operates on a contingency fee basis.
