(Philadelphia) - A $2,750,000 verdict obtained by Tom Duffy 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.

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.
