Hunter C. Carroll and Michael E. Phillips of the Hagwood Adelman Tipton firm successfully defended a long-term care facility in a medical negligence/personal injury case pending in Jefferson County Circuit Court. Plaintiff alleged that the nursing home was negligent in its care and treatment of her medical conditions resulting in her wounds being infested with maggots. In granting the motion for summary judgment, the Hon. Tom King, Jr. found, as a matter of law, that the plaintiff failed to establish the requisite standard of care for the Defendant’s medical personnel and further that the Plaintiff could not establish a breach thereof, causation, or even damages pursuant to the Alabama Medical Liability Act. In granting Mr. Carroll and Mr. Phillips’ Motion for Summary Judgment, judgment was entered in favor of their client and the case was dismissed with prejudice.
