Case Results

Scott has taken on cases just like yours for over 30 years.

Surgery without informed consent

After visiting a cosmetic surgeon, our client was instructed to take a sedative the night before and the morning of the surgery. The following morning she was given a third sedative before receiving the consent forms to sign. My client developed multiple infections as a result.

$500,000 Settlement

Wrongful Death

Our client's spouse died following hip replacement surgery and sequential rehabilitation. A suit was filed against the doctors who failed to conduct a pre-operative evaluation, which would have revealed the patient was a high risk for Deep Vein Thrombosis.

$300,000 Settlement

Defense Representation

Our client, a master engineer on a government-funded infrastructure repair project, was alleged to have intentionally committed insurance fraud by invoicing the federal government for work our client's team allegedly did not do.

Reduced settlement from $4000,000,000 to $100,000
