    There may be malpractice. You would need to have the medical records reviewed by a doctor in the same speciality. If the reviewing doctor believes that a physician "fell below the standard of care" and is willing to sign an affidavit stating same, you could proceed with the 90 presuit period by filing a notice of intent. Once the 90 day presuit period is over, you then have the right to file the lawsuit. Please feel free to call me if you want to have your case reviewed.

  • The other party responded to a video requests by claiming the videos were overwritten and does not exist anymore. Can a motion

    to compel further responses be justified and demand an explanation on how it was deleted and who was responsible for it?

    Sagi’s Answer

    I would set the deposition of the person who was in charge of the videos and overwriting the videos. Additionally, I would set the company (if its a corporate defendant) representative with most knowledge regarding the policies and procedure for handling videos of incidents on premises once an incident occurs. I think juries always wonder why a company fails to preserve evidence that it could have preserved. While a motion to compel cannot be filed to get something they don't have, you can get to the bottom of this and see how it happened and why it happened. Sometimes you get gems that help resolve the case.
