Successful Motion for Summary Judgment in Cook County Healthcare Provider Defense Case
Attorney Matthew A. Arnold and Associate Kristy K. Singler recently successfully litigated a pressure ulcer case on behalf of a healthcare provider in Cook County. The judge granted their motion for summary judgment dismissing the healthcare provider. The judge ruled the Plaintiff failed to establish a cause of action against the healthcare provider based upon the records and deposition testimony from the healthcare provider’s nurses.
There were well over 40,000 pages of records, and the Plaintiff claimed nearly $1 million in damages for a pressure ulcer which was the size of a dinner plate when the patient passed away. The team from Momkus McCluskey LLC exhibited exceptional skills in file management and discovery. The team not only kept the care by the healthcare provider from being criticized by the Plaintiff’s experts, they were able to convince the Plaintiff’s attorney that keeping the healthcare provider in the lawsuit would not be in the Plaintiff’s best interest.
