Practice Area:Medical Malpractice
Outcome:Supreme court decision for the hospital system.
Description:I handled this case in the trial court. I was able to obtain a summary judgment for the hospital on the parent's claim for the death of her child. The Texas Supreme court ruled as I had argued that the injury at the hospital occurred 2 years and 2 days before suit was filed, thus it was barred by the 2 year statute of limitations. Although the child's cause of action was extended because he was not an adult, the parent should have filed within 2 years of the injury, not 2 years from the date of death.
