Mich. woman with AIDS files claim on estate

December 04, 1990|By Knight-Ridder

STUART, Fla. -- A Michigan woman has filed a claim against the estate of dentist David Acer, reserving her right to sue for negligence if tests prove the dentist infected her with the AIDS virus when she was his patient.

The claim comes just days after CNA, holder of the dentist's $1 million malpractice insurance policy, rejected a settlement offer from Kimberly Bergalis, 22, the Florida woman whose claim that the dentist infected her with AIDS prompted hundreds of the dentist's former patients to have AIDS tests.

Lisa Shoemaker, of Birmingham, Mich., filed a claim for more than $10,000 against Acer's estate yesterday.
