Dana agreed to take a case and served as lead counsel for an injured factory worker who believed that a machine in the factory was defective but had been turned away by many firms. After filing suit against the machine manufacturer, working with multiple experts, participating in inspections of the machine on the factory floor, and deposing over a dozen witnesses including current and former employees of the defendant manufacturer, Dana secured a $3-million dollar settlement for that client against a manufacturer who had been an industry leader for decades.
In another matter, Dana agreed to take on a case on behalf of a prison inmate who was denied medical care while incarcerated which lead to a delay in the diagnosis of cancer and a delay in treatment. This client’s case had also been rejected by several Philadelphia law firms. Dana filed suit on the grounds of medical negligence and a denial of the inmate’s Constitutional rights. After serving as lead counsel on that matter and deposing over 30 persons including prison wardens, doctors, nurses, and the correctional officers assigned to the client’s housing unit in the prison, Dana’s client obtained a 7-figure confidential settlement.
