GMH medical malpractice defense attorneys LeRoy H. Wulfmeier, III and John R. Fleming won a victory in the Michigan Court of Appeals on July 2, 2020. The case involved alleged medical negligence stemming from the treatment of a young man in an emergency department. The St. Clair County Circuit Court granted summary disposition in favor of the defendants in 2019, finding plaintiff’s causation theory speculative and based on conjecture. The Court of Appeals affirmed, holding that plaintiff failed to show a causal connection between the treatment rendered by the defendant physician and the injury.
