Doctor cooks the books – $1.1 million malpractice settlement before jury selection for Nassau County man with undiagnosed kidney disease

Failure to diagnose kidney disease in a 39 year old accountant, a married father of young children, resulted in a $1.1 million settlement just before jury selection.  We suspected that the doctor had tampered with his medical records after he found out that his patient was seriously ill.  Our forensic document analysis showed gross tampering with the medical records.  We were prepared to prove the truth of all of this in court, but defense lawyers and insurance company agreed to a settlement on the eve of trial, rather than let the case go to a jury.
