August 2, 2016 - The law firm of Hourigan, Kluger & Quinn, PC has recently been recognized for achieving one of Pennsylvania’s Top Verdicts of 2015. The only law firm in northeastern PA in the top 20 to be recognized in this category, HKQ Law ranked number 16 amongst 45 firms in all legal categories throughout the Commonwealth.

After a 6 week trial, a Luzerne County jury awarded $6.25 million to Thomas and Lori Readler in a medical malpractice case involving the death of their 3-year-old daughter Lauren Readler. The Readler family was represented by a team of HKQ lawyers led by Attorney Joseph A. Quinn, Jr. and also included Attorneys Kevin C. Quinn, Nicole M. Santo and Brian Q. McDonnell.

The award was entered against Pinnacle Health System of Harrisburg Pa. along with a number of its affiliates and physician employees. This case involved the failure to properly diagnose and treat a conditional known as an "organo-axial rotation of the stomach." If properly diagnosed, this condition can be corrected by simply re-attaching the ligaments that hold the stomach in place to the abdominal wall. In Lauren's case, the failure to properly diagnose this condition and ensure that it was surgically corrected led to a severe gastrointestinal obstruction and stomach perforation, ultimately causing Lauren's untimely death.
