The Texas Supreme Court affirmed an appeals court decision July 31 in a medical malpractice case involving medical negligence.
In the opinion for Phillip v. McCreedy, the judge affirmed that the plaintiff, McCreedy, could move forward with his negligence claim. The defense representation for Dr. Chilton tried to get the case dismissed on the basis that the patient’s injury could not be causally connected to the doctor’s treatment.
The judge, however, ruled that the injured patient met the burden of proof to proceed with the case, in which the patient alleges that Dr. Chilton’s negligent treatment and failure to meet the standard of care resulted in the patient’s ankle fracture.
