Partner Christine B. Hickey Wins Summary Judgment in a Medical Malpractice Action

Partner Christine B. Hickey obtained summary judgment and dismissal of claims pending against her client, a Hospital, in a lawsuit pending in the Supreme Court, Suffolk County.  The plaintiff alleged brain injury as a result of negligent maintenance of electric systems and malpractice. Christine argued that there was no evidence of malpractice and that the treatment rendered was appropriate and not the cause of any claimed injuries.  In addition, she argued that the Hospital’s generators functioned properly and that plaintiff’s surgery was not impeded in any way by the Hospital’s electrical equipment.  The Court granted summary judgment to Christine’s client as to all causes of action.
