Teri Scotto-Lavino Wins Summary Judgment in Medical Malpractice Action

Attorney Teri Scotto-Lavino was successful in obtaining dismissal and judgment for an individual medical professional corporation named as one of many defendants in a medical malpractice action.

Plaintiff alleged that a named defendant should be liable as an individual doctor and through his professional corporation. Ms. Scotto-Lavino argued that the individual doctor was an employee of a named hospital facility and not providing care through the professional corporation. Thus the professional corporation could not be held vicariously liable for the acts of the doctor on the night of alleged treatment to plaintiff. The Court agreed and dismissed all claims asserted against the client.
