Top Verdicts Report Features Duffy + Fulginiti Win

(Philadelphia) - A $2,750,000 verdict obtained by Duffy + Fulginiti on behalf of a man with a history of schizophrenia who injured himself after being left unattended in a crisis response center was featured in the just-released “Top Pennsylvania Verdicts of 2019,” as compiled by VerdictSearch. The case, argued by Tom Duffy, was listed as number 15 of the overall top verdicts in Pennsylvania last year, and the number 3 top medical malpractice verdict.

In Williams v. Einstein Crisis Response center, Albert Einstein Medical Center, Einstein Healthcare Network and others, the plaintiff, a 20-year-old man, was brought to Albert Einstein Crisis Response Center for treatment of conjunctivitis. Despite having a history of schizophrenia and displaying erratic behavior in the waiting room, the plaintiff was not given a bed or room and was left alone in a large waiting room for some 16 hours, unable to leave and ignored by medical staff.
