- Plaintiff v. Dentist – Obtained summary judgment on behalf of a dentist client in a medical malpractice/negligence case. The plaintiff alleged that the client left foreign objects inside her mouth during dental surgery. However, a defense expert was able to establish that nothing the defendant did to plaintiff would have resulted in any of the injuries claimed. Additionally, based on medical imaging and notes of multiple medical providers, it was shown that the defendant could not have left any foreign objects inside plaintiff’s mouth.
- Plaintiff v. Surgeon – Obtained summary judgment on behalf of a general surgeon in a case alleging medical malpractice as a result of negligent medical care and treatment. The plaintiff alleged that the client failed to effectively treat and resolve his appendicitis. However, the defense was able to show that the client treated the plaintiff appropriately and complied with the standard of care. Additionally, since the plaintiff could not establish medical negligence, his wife’s pending claim for loss of consortium also failed.
