CG&P Obtains Summary Judgment for Physical Therapist

In an action alleging physical therapy malpractice, CG&P was victorious in obtaining summary judgment dismissal of all claims against its client, a physical therapist who treated plaintiff’s decedent in a rehabilitation facility. It was alleged that the physical therapist was responsible for decedent’s hip fracture which was discovered during his admission at the rehabilitation facility. The Court held that CG&P’s strategy to use its client’s Affidavit in support of the motion was appropriate and established his prima facie entitlement to judgment as a matter of law. The Court agreed with CG&P’s contention that plaintiff’s arguments were speculative, conclusory, and were not supported by the record. The case was handled by CG&P Partner, Christopher Rogers, and CG&P Associate, Alex DiGiovanna.
