Notable Case Wins
Willard v. Sampath
Marshall was "second chair" trial counsel to DD&B attorney Michael P. Quinn, Jr. when the Willard v. Sampath case resulted in a $8.6 million June 2016 Providence County jury verdict and judgment. The jury found in favor of our client, a 54-year-old woman, for delayed treatment of a postoperative spinal infection. The delay followed a miscommunication over a laboratory result which resulted in damage to the woman’s surgically repaired spine, muscles and ligaments surrounding her spinal column.
Ciancola v. University of Rhode Island
Marshall also assisted DD&B attorney Patrick Barry in achieving a settlement days before trial representing the mother of a URI student-athlete who collapsed during a team workout and died three days later. The case involved complex medical and scientific issues unique to sports related deaths and injuries in athletic workouts.
Multimillion-dollar recovery on behalf of the families of five victims who died in a house fire. Settlement reached with a major manufacturer of a smoke alarm alleged to be defective, shortly before trial.
