My question involves medical malpractice in the state of: maryland
have a client who was trying to get life insurance. was declined for hep C. i informed the client (who became alarmed). client is non drug, non drinking, non running around, BUT he did have $3500 of dental work done between jan and march of this year. was in the chair every two weeks. I told them to check with primary doc for prior blood work and get blood work done again to confirm hep c. two questions...should we inform state medical folks??? i would think that the other patients this dentist saw over three months should be notified they may have hep c...second question: is this something my client could go after the dentist for???? I think the medical treatments are very expensive...let alone the emotional the duress...and the fact he will have trouble getting reasonable life insurance now.
