Representative Failure to Diagnose Case

In a case involving a cardiology blood test in Adrian, the family doctor and his records claimed that he discussed alarming lab results with his patient, but the patient refused to cooperate with the further diagnostic tests necessary to enable doctors to properly diagnose his heart disease. When he died, his wife insisted that she knew her husband would have insisted that the test be done.

At the inception of this case, the defense lawyer asked how we could sue the doctor since the office records were perfect and indicated that the patient refused to be tested. We responded, "They're too perfect. We think they are made up and fraudulent. We want to take the doctor's deposition and send the records to a documents examiner." At deposition, when faced with false testimony, which is a felony in Michigan, the doctor admitted to falsifying the medical records after the patient's death. Within a week the case settled.
