PHARMACEUTICAL LAW, MEDICAL LAW & ETHICS
Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional provides treatment that deviates from accepted standards of care within the medical community, thereby causing injury to a patient. If a doctor, surgeon, hospital, or another party was medically negligent, they may be liable for any ensuing losses. Medical negligence refers to a negligent act or omission. If the victim can demonstrate that the negligent act was directly responsible for their injury, they may be awarded various damages (e.g., medical expenses, lost wages, and emotional suffering).
In addition to dispute resolution and judicial representation in medical negligence and medical malpractice claims, we also handle policy and regulatory matters before the European Commission, European agencies and national regulatory authorities.
