Mark P. Merlini, Jr., and Michael J. Joyce of MOODK’s Philadelphia office obtain summary judgment dismissing all claims against a physician client and his practice group. Plaintiff claimed that negligent physician, mid-level provider and nursing care led to development and progression of a stage IV pressure injury ultimately resulting in sepsis and death.   Despite production of an expert report implicating the alleged conduct of our clients, we successfully argued that orders attributed to the physician and his practice were unrelated to the alleged skin care at issue. Because of the strong pleading and motion practice, while claims against 2 other physicians and multiple entities are set to proceed to trial, MOODK’s clients have been dismissed with prejudice.
