MEDICAL MALPRACTICE: Superior Court Dismisses Action For Lack Of §52-190a Compliance

The plaintiff’s medical malpractice action was dismissed where the required written opinion of a similar healthcare provider did not meet the requirements of §52-190a.

The plaintiff was pursuing a dental malpractice action.  Although the plaintiff provided a certificate of good faith as required by that statute and a written medical opinion, the medical opinion did not indicate whether the opinion writer was licensed to practice in Connecticut or a state with equal or greater requirements as to qualifications.
