Can I sue my doctor for falsifying a medical report for a lawsuit?
2 attorney answers
In order to have a case you need to be prepared with another doctor’s report or testimony countering the first doctor’s prognosis and showing how a reasonable physician with the same information would have come back with a very different result. In fact you need to be able to show that the first doctor operated outside the normal duty of care and course of conduct in their determination. This is a very complex type of case and requires you to be able to show there were no intervening causes of injury between the two doctors period of treatment. Finally if you are only taking issue with the doctor’s report due to the outcome of the personal injury matter, I would advise you to take it up with your personal injury attorney who managed the case and worked with the doctors and their reports. Good luck.
