HAT Attorney Michael Phillips Receives Arbitrator’s Award

Michael Phillips, on behalf of his client, received an arbitrator’s award following a three day Hearing. The arbitration was between Claimant, the daughter of a senior care resident who passed away following an acute onset of sepsis, and Respondent, a long-term care facility, defended by Phillips. The Claimant alleged Respondent was negligent in failing to timely transfer her mother to the hospital – resulting in her mother’s otherwise avoidable death.

In addition to expert testimony, Claimant provided a timeline and supporting video in support of her position. In addition to presenting evidence that rebutted Claimant’s evidence, Phillips was able to impeach Claimant with her self-serving timeline and related video. After hearing the evidence, a reasoned award was entered in favor of Phillips’ client.
