Ross Feller Casey Files Major Birth Injury Lawsuit

View all news posts

Ross Feller Casey founding partner Matt Casey filed a lawsuit this week in Lackawanna County Court on behalf of the parents of a young boy who suffers from tragic and catastrophic birth injuries.

The lawsuit alleges, among other things, that two Northeastern Pennsylvania hospitals, Wilkes-Barre General and Moses Taylor, were negligent in delivering the boy and caring for him after birth. As a result, Billy Hughes, now 4, suffers from cerebral palsy and other permanent conditions and cannot talk, walk, crawl, or sit without support and is tube fed.

“We will now begin the process of taking sworn testimony to get fully to the bottom of how and why this happened to this little boy,” Casey told The Wilkes-Barre Times-Leader.
