Michael C. Hamilton
Secured summary judgment for two physicians and a physician’s practice group in a wrongful death, medical malpractice case by presenting an argument that physician’s actions, while allegedly below the standard of care, were outside of the factual chain of causation. Summary Judgment was granted despite the presence of expert reports against the clients.
Secured Summary Judgment for a regional healthcare provider on a claim for direct corporate negligence which significantly reduced the ultimate settlement.
Secured Summary Judgment for a county-created healthcare provider on a claim for medical malpractice by the successful implementation of the Political Subdivision Tort Claims Act.
Secured Summary Judgment for a national supplier of correctional medical services on a claim of constitutional violations alleging deliberate indifference to a serious medical need.
Successfully briefed and argued a Motion for Partial Summary Judgment which so limited the plaintiff’s ability to present evidence that the case was dismissed with prejudice by the plaintiff.
