Summary Judgment Granted in Highly-Publicized Medical Malpractice Case
We obtained summary judgment in a medical malpractice action, which was covered in The New York Law Journal. The plaintiff, a man severely debilitated by a stroke, alleged that our nursing home client had admitted him with 14 pre-existing pressure sores. Through our expert, the records and our client’s deposition testimony, we established that all of the plaintiff’s pressure sores either stabilized or resolved during his two-month admission. The court found no deviations from the accepted standards of care and dismissed the case.
