We respect doctors: we know that they have a great responsibility in their healing work. Therefore, we consider it unacceptable and unacceptable that a doctor should not act with the utmost care, in accordance with the professional rules, and in knowledge of and in accordance with the state of the art in medicine. We consider it unacceptable and unacceptable to be unprepared and negligent in the practice of medicine, as such omissions may endanger – or in the worst case, result in the loss of – human life. At the same time, we have successfully represented doctors on several occasions, as it is our policy to act only in ethically, medically and legally acceptable cases, regardless of the profession of our client.
In all cases, therefore, we strive to act with full empathy and discretion, going beyond the confidentiality expected of a lawyer, and with the client’s sparingness, both during consultations and during the proceedings that are initiated. Claims based on medical malpractice will be pursued through out-of-court conciliation, or, if unsuccessful, through litigation, or, if the medical malpractice raises the possibility of criminal prosecution, through criminal proceedings, as our client wishes. If the medical documentation is not available to our client, or is incomplete, we will obtain a certified copy of the complete documentation and analyse it in detail, if necessary with the assistance of a medical expert, before the proceedings are initiated. In the light of this analysis, we will endeavour to give our client an honest and reasoned opinion as to whether there has been a failure to act which could give rise to a civil claim or a criminal prosecution.
Medical malpractice proceedings require specialised legal expertise and a reliable team of professional experts, which is fully available in our office. We have many years of experience in this field, including the negotiation of out-of-court settlements, as it is in the best interests of both the operator and, in particular, our clients to bring the proceedings to a conclusion as quickly as possible, avoiding time delays and speeding up the process of compensation.
