Summary Judgment for Chiropractor in Malpractice Case
Doug Smith and Claire Sumner obtained summary judgment in Gwinnett County on behalf of a chiropractor, who employed a massage therapist. The Plaintiff argued that the therapist had provided negligent care and treatment and that the chiropractor had negligently trained and supervised her. Doug and Claire argued that the Plaintiff failed to prove that the chiropractor knew or should have known that the therapist engaged in prior acts relevant to the Plaintiff’s claimed injuries. The Court agreed that there was an absence of evidence sufficient to show that the therapist had a tendency to engage in the allegedly negligent behavior and granted the chiropractor’s motion.
