Joe Petka Obtains Early Dismissal in Medical Malpractice Claim

The plaintiff in this matter filed suit against a local hospital for medical malpractice. She alleged that an EMG she received at the hospital caused her ongoing pain and limitations. Joe asserted that the claim should be dismissed shortly after filing based on a combination of case law and the rules of civil procedure. The Court dismissed the case with prejudice before Joe’s client spent any time or money on costly discovery.
