Summary Judgment Granted in Medical Malpractice Case

SLS attorneys Jim Myers, Dawn Parsons and Hank Stitt represented a radiologist and his employer against claims for fraudulent concealment and negligent hiring, supervision and retention of the physician. Plaintiff, who disagreed with the radiologists reading of her thoracic and lumbar MRI, claimed the physician and his employer were involved in a wide-spread conspiracy amongst doctors and insurance companies to keep patients (including herself) from getting the medical care and treatment they needed. Plaintiff claimed that SLS’s client knew her back was injured, but concealed these findings as part of a conspiracy with her insurance company. On February 22, 2017, the District Court of Johnson County, Kansas granted summary judgment and finding in favor of SLS’s clients on all claims. The case is currently on appeal.
