Even the defense is asking for damages in this malpractice case where the hospital admitted fault
“Some damages seem inevitable, as William Beaumont Hospital admits its fault in the fire. The hospital’s lawyer, Keefe Brooks, said it is rare for a defense lawyer in a civil trial to ask for damages.
‘Yes, it’s true that William Beaumont Hospital caused that fire,’ said Brooks. “William Beaumont Hospital caused Nathan to suffer the burns.
‘On behalf of William Beaumont Hospital, we apologize to the Laporte family,’ he said turning to the parents, Craig and Shelley Laporte of Macomb, adding that he hoped the jury would award an appropriate damage.”
