Romaguera Law Group recently defended a case for a Physical Therapist and a company where it
was alleged a healthcare instructor injured a student during the course of providing a seminar.
This hands-on seminar instructed students on how to perform the procedure which she alleged
caused her injury. The case was filed outside the applicable statute of limitations for medical
malpractice claims. The claimant tried to allege that her claim was grounded in simple negligence
and not medical malpractice since the student was not the healthcare provider’s patient. We filed
an extensive motion to strike as a sham pleading. Before the hearing date, we were approached
with a very nominal settlement demand and a settlement was reached. Prior to the settlement,
with the thoughtful work of attorney Romaguera, the individual Physical Therapist was dismissed,
individually, from the lawsuit.
