In an action for negligence and medical malpractice, it was alleged that CG&P’s client, an assisted living facility, and the co-defendant physician were negligent in caring for a resident who sustained multiple falls. CG&P moved for summary judgment on the grounds that the admission agreement between the facility and the resident limited the facility’s responsibilities.
Often times, malpractice claims are accompanied by breach of fiduciary duty, fraud or other claims, but in each of the ten cases, CG&P was able to get all of the claims dismissed.
CG&P congratulates founding partner Gary Petropoulos on being sworn in as Assistant Dean of the Nassau Academy of Law.
