The Philadelphia attorneys at McLaughlin & Lauricella fight tooth and nail?in the courtroom and elsewhere - to gain justice for injured and violated clients.
It would be fair to characterize Slade H. McLaughlin and Paul A. Lauricella as averse to delegating. This is why it's not uncommon to see one or both attorneys poring through medical records or case files when most people on the East Coast have been asleep for hours.
Such commitment has reaped tremendous dividends, however, in the form of million-and-multimillion-dollar verdicts for clients who have been injured in catastrophic and often irreparable ways?a woman who suffered blindness due to medical negligence during a routine knee operation, for example, or a man who lost his legs in a bulldozer accident and had to call 911 himself because his coworkers left the scene?and in some cases even been killed. "In one case?Fledderman v. Glunk?we represented an 18year old Penn State student who was having liposuction performed by a doctor," recalls McLaughlin, who earned his Juris Doctor from Villanova University School of Law. "We contended that the doctor hit a blood vessel in the patient's neck, and instead of calling 911, because he was concerned about an ambulance pulling up in front of his office, he kept her there for hours. By the time someone did call 911, only because of the insistence of the patient's mother, it was too late, and the patient later died in the hospital from complications of a fat embolism. We won a $20.5 million verdict, including $15 million in punitive damages, which is the highest punitive damage verdict in a medical malpractice case ever awarded in Pennsylvania."
McLaughlin and Lauricella, partners in the Philadelphia based firm, McLaughlin & Lauricella P.C., have successfully represented plaintiffs in some of the biggest, most high profile cases in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, including those involving sexual abuse victims of Jerry Sandusky, former Philadelphia Daily News columnist Bill Conlin, and the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. McLaughlin and Lauricella owe their success on behalf of their clients, at least in part, to the late Jim Beasley Sr., a legendary trial attorney under whom they both trained for more than a decade.
