Senior Trial Partner Jeff Lawton, Partner Matthew Frank and Associate Gabrielle Murray obtained summary judgment in Bronx County. The patient developed a pressure ulcer at our client hospital. Our geriatric expert opined on summary judgment that development of the pressure ulcer, despite multiple proper interventions, was unavoidable due to the patient's co-morbidities. The Court found plaintiff's arguments in opposition regarding lack of documentation and lack of early wound consult unpersuasive and insufficient to raise a triable issue of fact. As such, the Court dismissed the Complaint as to our client hospital and removed them from the caption. The plaintiff’s motion to reargue the grant of our Summary Judgment was denied.
