Senior litigation partner, Patrick J. Rice, obtained summary judgment in a medical malpractice case arising out of care and treatment to a patient diagnosed with breast cancer. The plaintiff claimed that a potentially helpful drug was not adequately explained to their family member and its importance in the plan of treatment to slow recurrences and treat breast cancer. Mr. Rice was able to defend and show evidence that the treatment drug and plan of action to fight the disease was explained adequately. The trial court granted a summary judgment to our defendant physician.
