Had a car accident in 2016. My Dr. stated that I had a "cervical strain" from accident and my pain in shoulders was due to busy work season at the firm I work! She also said my prognosis was EXCELLENT on medical report for court. During my last session, she said she doesnt agree with lawsuits where the patient and lawyers get rich! My case was withdrawn due to doctor's report. I have Spinal stenosis from the trauma from the car accident, as well as degenetrive discs and spondylosis. Car accidents are a leading cause of spinal stenosis and this accident caused an injury where the I had no pain or symptoms and turn it into a life altering. Due I have recourse with my doctor for writing a false report. I just found out about ALL this when I went to another doctor after my lawsuit was withdrawn and new doctor suggesting spinal fusion. Please help.
This is something you should contact the Connecticut Department of Public Health and consider filing a complaint against the doctor.
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.
