Colleen Mattrey Secures Summary Judgment

Colleen Mattrey secured summary judgment against a target defendant in a medical malpractice action brought by an infant plaintiff who claims he was misdiagnosed and/or suffered a delay in diagnosis of acute lead poisoning. The infant plaintiff claimed that he suffered significant brain damage as a result of the high levels of lead that were detected in his blood, for which he asserted that he will suffer lifelong cognitive impairment and inability to work or enjoy life. After years of torturous discovery against eight medical and non-medical defendants, all medical defendants moved for summary judgment and were successful based on expert proof that there were no deviations from the standard of care, nor was there proof that any treatment provided caused the alleged injuries.
