Kara C. White and Harry P. McGrath successfully secured a summary judgment for a hospital client facing medical malpractice allegations. The case involved a deceased elderly man in declining health who had sporadic stays at the hospital while residing in long-term care facilities. At the time of death, he had non-healing pressure sores and a multitude of co-morbidities.
A team effort, Ms. White worked with the firm’s medical expert to write a strong report and identify the specific issues in this case that needed to be addressed by the motion for summary judgment. Based on that, Mr. McGrath wrote the motion and memorandum of law receiving no opposition from the plaintiff.
Note: The results obtained in a particular case are, of course, always heavily dependent on the facts and the law specific to that case.
