16 Mar Virginia: Car Accidents – Medical Malpractice – a Lawyer’s Pump
On March 16, 2016, Riverside Hospital, Inc. reconsidered and voluntarily provided Mr. Waterman a completely unredacted copy of its RISK MANAGEMENT WORKSHEET CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION about the patient’s pain medication pump in the alleged wrongful death lawsuit, Lisa L. Myers, Administrator of the Estate of James R. Perron, Deceased v. Riverside Hospital, Inc., et al., No. CL1600298B-04 in Circuit Court for the City of Newport News, Virginia. Initially, Riverside had provided only a redacted version of that patient record in response to Mr. Waterman’s request pursuant to Va. Code §8.01-413(B); claimed the redacted information was “privileged”; and filed Motion to Quash in the pending medical malpractice action.
In response, Mr. Waterman filed and set for hearing in the Myers wrongful death case Patient’s Motion to Enforce Va. Code §8.01-413(C) Subpoena. To date, he always has succeeded in whole or part in enforcing such subpoenas in medical malpractice proceedings, which enforcement subpoenas have as their predicate simple record requests based on his client’s medical authorization.
THE VIRGINIA STATE BAR REQUIRES ALL LAWYERS TO POST THE FOLLOWING DISCLAIMERS ON ALL CASE-RELATED POSTS. MR. WATERMAN’S CASE RESULTS AND CLIENT TESTIMONIALS DEPEND UPON A VARIETY OF FACTORS UNIQUE TO EACH CASE. THEY DO NOT GUARANTEE OR PREDICT A SIMILAR RESULT IN ANY FUTURE CASE BY HIM.
