Kocour, Schneider Win Summary Judgment Motion in Medical Negligence Case

Swanson, Martin & Bell, LLP Partner Patricia S. Kocour and Associate Megan Schneider won a hotly contested summary judgment motion on behalf of a Chicago-based hospital in a medical negligence action in late July.

The plaintiff alleged that the hospital negligently credentialed the co-defendant physician, who performed surgeries on the plaintiff's foot. The plaintiff's main liability expert made concessions at his deposition that laid the groundwork for the win. Schneider orally argued the motion.

The hospital was dismissed from the case, which remained pending against the co-defendant physician.
