In Jennifer Stamler v Anuj Mittal, M.D. and M-Amin Badawi, M.D., Case No. 325261 (March 10, 2016), the Michigan Court of Appeals reversed the trial court's decision granting summary disposition in favor of the defendant physicians in a medical malpractice case. In reversing the trial court, the Court of Appeals held that proximate causation in a medical malpractice case is a question of fact and trial courts should not lightly grant motions for summary disposition on the issue.
The highly skilled and experienced medical malpractice legal team at Hertz Schram PC, led by attorneys Steve Weiss and Elizabeth Thomson, reviewed a potential medical malpractice claim brought to them by clients who suffered the loss of a loved one that visited a local Michigan hospital for treatment and was given the wrong treatment based off an imprudent gross medical misdiagnosis.
