My favorite part of my job is meeting Virginia families who want to know whether or not they have a possible malpractice lawsuit. Typically, they have never spoken to an attorney before. They are shy about calling. And they just want to know, if what happened, should have happened. And if it shouldn’t have happened, what can be done.
These are all very understandable and reasonable questions.
The hardest part of my job is when I know (and medical experts agree) that a hospital, nursing home, doctor, etc. has done something really wrong – I mean, clearly acted negligently, and there is nothing we can do about it.
How can a Virginia family know whether they have a medical malpractice case?
