Branford, CT asked in Medical Malpractice and Health Care Law for Connecticut

Q: What can be done when procedures that weren’t ordered are done.

We ordered 2 tests done and blood drawn for those two tests. The facility drew blood enough for 6 tests and is currently processing those test that weren’t ordered through them. Do we have any sort of case.

A: A Connecticut attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. If you did not suffer physical harm, it does not appear to offer a basis for a med mal case. Different attorneys could see a given situation differently. You could reach out to local attorneys to arrange a free initial consult for their perspective. There could be other issues, such as raising the issue of the necessity of the additional 4 tests if your carrier denies, and the provider pursues payment from you. Save your EOBs/denials in the coming weeks in regard to this testing. Good luck
