COLLEEN SHEA (Wilmington) obtained Summary Judgment in a wrongful death medical malpractice case against an area hospital. The plaintiff alleged that the hospital nurses were negligent for failing to keep the physicians informed of the plaintiff’s declining condition which resulted in the plaintiff developing necrotizing fasciitis, being hospitalized for six months and eventually passing away. Colleen was able to demonstrate that the plaintiff’s experts were not qualified to give standard of care opinions against the hospital and was that the co-defendant physicians were not agents of the hospital. The Court granted our Motion for Summary Judgment and the case was dismissed.

The outcome of a particular case cannot be predicated upon a lawyer's or law firm's past results.
