Case Result: Inmate Claims Medical Malpractice, Negligence for Alleged Delay in Treatment; Case Dismissed

Areas of Law:
Medical Malpractice 
Correctional Healthcare

Circuit Court in Michigan

Dismissed on Summary Disposition; no appeal


The inmate plaintiff was incarcerated in a county jail and complained of a skin infection from a spider bite. Medical personnel at the inmate’s facility properly assessed the patient and provided appropriate treatment. The inmate sued Defendant Medical Providers, alleging that treatment for his skin infection was improperly delayed.

The Court granted our motion for summary disposition and dismissed the complaint because the inmate failed to file an affidavit of merit with his complaint, and he did not serve a notice of intent prior to bringing his lawsuit as required by Michigan law.
