Hospitals are no stranger to liability claims. But even when you’re facing a high number every year, having an excellent defense is important every single time.
When a Palm Beach County lawsuit alleged that a hospital client was liable for the negligence of a non-employed midwife, Rissman’s Karissa Owens won a summary judgment by defeating a claim based upon non-delegable duty arising out of the provision of labor and delivery care. And on a separate claim of vicarious liability, Karissa won summary judgment defeating actual and apparent agency theories.
With the right defense, you’ll never be caught off guard.
