Healthcare litigators obtain dismissals for clients in Philadelphia and Northumberland Counties

Healthcare litigator Stuart T. O’Neal obtained dismissals in two separate cases. One was a medical malpractice case in Philadelphia County, where a dismissal was granted due to a procedural technicality. The other was a defamation suit in Sunbury, Pa. in Northumberland County that was negotiated to the client’s satisfaction with no money owed.

In the third, healthcare litigators Stuart T. O’Neal and Anne P. Schmidt secured a dismissal for a hospital client in a medical malpractice matter in Philadelphia County. The hospital, along with a physician, faced lack of informed consent and negligence in the performance of a procedure allegations. The plaintiff voluntarily withdrew the case before the expiration of the discovery deadline.

Note: The results obtained in a particular case are, of course, always heavily dependent on the facts and the law specific to that case.
