David J. Carney joined Anapol Schwartz in 2010 as an associate in the firm’s Toxic Tort and Medical Malpractice Departments and in that time, has zealously advocated for the rights of injured victims in a variety of complex matters.
During his time at Anapol Schwartz, David has played an integral role in obtaining six and seven figure verdicts and settlements for victims that have been injured as a result of a physician’s medical negligence. Along with Lawrence R. Cohan, Esquire, David has helped obtain a $1.9 million verdict in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania for the estate of a pregnant mother, whose pneumonia was misdiagnosed upon her presentation to the emergency room, resulting in her death, leaving behind two young children. Also, David played a critical role in obtaining a $1.1 million verdict in Cumberland County, New Jersey for the estate of a father, who presented to the emergency room with signs and symptoms of a pulmonary embolism that was misdiagnosed and consequently led to his death.
David also spends a significant amount of his time representing victims that have suffered adverse events from the administration of a vaccine in the United States Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C. David has achieved great success in the firm’s vaccine practice by obtaining significant compensation sums for those injured from vaccines, including $9 million for a four year old boy who was diagnosed with encephalitis that was caused by the Varicella vaccination. David routinely handles vaccine cases involving the Gardasil, Influenza, Varicella, DTaP, Hepatitis A and B, and MMR vaccines that have been linked to a variety of autoimmune diseases such as Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS), lupus, brachial neuritis, encephalopathy, and others and has successfully obtained countless six-figure settlements for those claims.
Outside of his role in the Toxic Tort and Medical Malpractice Departments, David represents victims injured from defective products, defective conditions, motor vehicle accidents, unsafe medical devices and from asbestos exposure.

Tereshko in the First Judicial District in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas, Civil Trial Division, regularly performing research and writing in connection with civil matters pending before the court.
