Court Grants Motion for Summary Disposition in Oakland County Circuit Court for Urgent Care Facility Sued in Medical Malpractice Case

08/01/2016

Attorneys Richard A. Joslin and Trent B. Collier won a motion for summary disposition in favor of their client, an urgent care facility, in this medical malpractice case. The plaintiff’s husband was seen at the urgent care center and as part of the work-up there, received an x-ray. The x-ray was interpreted by an independent contractor radiologist. After plaintiff’s husband died, she sued alleging that a number of physicians and entities were negligent in failing to property diagnose her husband. The court dismissed the action as to the urgent care center, holding that the radiologist was neither the actual nor ostensible agent of the urgent care center.
