There is documentation for all care that transpires in a hospital or clinic environment. To handle allegations of delivery room malpractice, wrongful death, or misdiagnosis, we gather records, review films, talk with the physician to gather facts, and obtain experts, all to determine that the standard of care was met. We will make inquiries to help determine if the patient was subjected to unreasonable risk, future surgeries, or additional expenses. We also utilize experts to determine whether other physicians would have made the same or similar choices under the circumstances.
