Medical Malpractice occurs when a medical professional provides care that is beneath the standard of care of speciality. This is referred to as medical malpractice or medical negligence and often times results in serious injury and/or death.  The Journal of the American Medical Association  reports that almost 100,000 people die each year from injuries resulting from some form of medical malpractice and many more are injured.  If you feel you are the victim of medical malpractice or are an attorney representing a medical malpractice victim please continue to learn how MedWitness, Ltd. can be of assistance.

Medical Malpractice includes Hospital Malpractice and Nursing Home Malpractice.  This type of malpractice is generally referred to in the law as enterprise malpractice or enterprise liability.  Generally speaking these cases are very similar in nature to medical malpractice cases.  MedWitness is qualified to handle any of these types of cases.

Personal injury refers to injuries caused to the person by another party.  Most personal injuries in the United States come from either a motor vehicle accident, a slip and fall or a dog bite.  The law expects that all people take proper care to avoid harming another.  If someone negligently does something that harms you then you may have a remedy in the law.  In order to proceed with a personal injury lawsuit you need an attorney to represent you in court and a medical expert to testify in court with respect to the nature and extent of your injury(s).  MedWitness provides medical experts in any field of medicine anywhere in the nation.  For those who need an attorney MedWitness also can often times provide a referral to an attorney experienced in personal injury law.  See 'Find a Lawyer' page.

It is a very serious matter if and when a State Medical Board brings charges against a licensed physician. We have either or both lawyers and medical experts to review such charges and help in the doctor's defense. We have been involved in many different types of Board defense cases including allegations related to opiate prescribing, billing procedures, medical necessity, kickbacks and fitness for practice. We urge any physician facing a State Medical Board Notice or Charge to take the action very seriously and act upon it as soon as possible. We have found that at times physicians fail to comprehend the seriousness of what's going on or feel that they can informally handle the matter in their due time. These are potential fatal mistakes as the State Board would not take these actions absent what they believe is good cause shown and where they believe that they will be able to prove their case and impose very serious sanctions.
