Virginia: Medical Malpractice – a Lawyer’s Discovery (July 19, 2012)

On July 12, 2012, Mr. Waterman served plaintiff’s Second Motion to Compel in the medical malpractice lawsuit captioned Arshan v. Plotnick, et al., No. CL11-1316 in Circuit Court for the City of Williamsburg and James City County, Virginia. The Motion seeks answers and responses from the defendant doctor and corporation to the Discovery Requests of the plaintiff executor for the estate of the deceased patient, Sharon Britt.

Re the Second Discovery Requests in the Plotnick wrongful death case, Dr. Plotnick and his professional corporation still are withholding their billings and any write-offs and write-downs from the deceased patient. Their billings evince what patient services they represented to third-party payors they provided to Ms. Britt, while any write-off/write-down arguably evinces an admission of fault/liability by them.
