Defense Verdict Affirmed on Appeal

LDM attorneys Mark Novotny, John Walker and Sarah Macdissi recently obtained a ruling from the Nebraska Supreme Court affirming a dismissal of the plaintiff’s complaint against a Physical Therapy clinic based on the plaintiff’s failure to timely file her lawsuit.  In Churchill v. Columbus Community Hospital, the Court agreed that Physical Therapists are professionals, and that the patient’s fall in exiting an aquatic therapy pool, after being evaluated by her therapist for her ability to ambulate, was an action sounding in professional negligence.  The plaintiff’s complaint was therefore subject to the professional limitations period, and dismissed for failing to be timely filed.
