Dismissal Obtained in Texas Nursing Home Case

Galloway, Johnson, Tompkins, Burr & Smith (GJTBS) attorneys Kelly Hartmann and Amanda Kurz recently obtained a dismissal under the Texas Medical Liability Act’s expert report requirement.  The plaintiff brought a Health Care Liability claim against a nursing home seeking damages allegedly arising out of the nursing home’s negligent care of the plaintiff’s decedent.  The trial court ordered a dismissal of the claim after finding the plaintiff’s expert report did not comply with the requirements found in Chapter 74 of the Texas Civil practice and Remedies Code.
