David J. Colleran joined Ross Feller Casey in November 2018 and focuses his practice on representing clients who have been catastrophically injured as a result of medical malpractice, defective products, dangerous premises, and workplace accidents.
He joined Ross Feller Casey after 18 years at his own firm, where he aggressively represented clients in courts across Pennsylvania and New Jersey as well as in federal district courts. During his career, Colleran has distinguished himself by winning large verdicts in difficult venues not traditionally known for such results.
As a lead trial attorney, Colleran has built an impressive record of success, obtaining numerous multi-million-dollar verdicts and settlement on behalf of his clients.
Most recently, in July 2021, Colleran won a major $5.8 million wrongful death verdict in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas on behalf of the family of a 48-year-old woman who died of uterine cancer. Colleran successfully convinced the jury that doctors failed to recommend the woman undergo a hysterectomy for her ongoing, symptomatic fibroids, which would have prevented her cancer from ever developing (read about the case).
The list includes:
Colleran, as co-counsel, also won a $7.5 million verdict in Philadelphia for a teenager who lost his lower leg after a failure to timely diagnose compartment syndrome.
Colleran graduated from the Villanova University School of Law in 1999 before serving as a clerk for the Honorable John P. Fullam, a federal judge in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
Colleran is licensed to practice in Pennsylvania and New Jersey and is a member of several professional organizations, including the Philadelphia Bar Association, the Pennsylvania Bar Association, and the Pennsylvania Association for Justice.
