Case Result: Inmate Sued Four Physicians, Physician Assistant for Failure to Treat MS, Seizures

Areas of Law:
Medical Malpractice
Correctional Healthcare

Wayne County Circuit Court (2015)

Summary Disposition

Plaintiff was allegedly diagnosed with possible multiple sclerosis and seizure disorder in 2010 prior to his second incarceration with the Michigan Department of Corrections. Plaintiff claimed several physicians failed to properly treat his MS and/or seizure disorder.

Defendants maintained that plaintiff did not meet the criteria for MS and was simply drug seeking. In addition, defense contended the proper diagnosis was pseudo seizure, a psychiatric diagnosis that is best treated through a psychiatrist. Defendants additionally argued this was a lost opportunity case,  and that plaintiff was unable to prove the alleged damages were more than 50% caused by the actions or inactions of defendant physicians.

After a dozen or more depositions, several briefs and a summary disposition motion, the court agreed and dismissed the case 45 days before trial.
