Appellate Professional Liability

Plaintiff v. Defendant Physician

04/01/2002
Client:

Defendant Physician

Outcome:

Appeal Dismissed

Synopsis:

In a plaintiff’s medical malpractice action, summary judgment was granted in favor of the firm’s client because the court found no evidence that his alleged negligence had any causal connection to the injuries.

The trial court denied plaintiffs’ motion to reconsider the decision.

Because plaintiff erred in perfecting the appeal given the multiple orders that pertained to the order granting summary judgment, the appellate court granted a motion to dismiss the appeal.
