Chip Donnelly Wins Jury Trial in Medical Malpractice Case

Firm Partner Chip Donnelly recently won a significant jury trial in the New Jersey Superior Court on behalf of the firm’s client, who was a defendant in the case. In the case, plaintiff alleged that our client, a medical resident, failed to communicate important post-surgery information to the attending surgeon. All of the other defendants, including the attending surgeon, had settled with the plaintiff before trial. Mr. Donnelly presented a medical expert who testified that the resident had complied with the standard of care and properly kept the attending surgeon informed. The jury agreed and rendered a verdict of no cause for action in favor of the defendant.

Mr. Donnelly is one of the firm’s senior litigating attorneys, with over thirty years of experience in trial work and well over 100 jury trials in the medical and professional liability area.
