Locating Medical Providers in Medical Malpractice
In medical malpractice cases, one of the big issues is locating and identifying all the possible liable parties in providing the required notices. I have found that a call to the risk management of the primary medical provider can be helpful. They are often willing to assist in making sure that the potential defendant nurses and doctors are given the required notices. The purpose of the notice statute when it was written was to give attorneys and medical providers the opportunity to attempt to resolve cases with merit without the need for filing suit. Obviously, some cases will have to be litigated but other cases not so much. In the past I have been able to resolve a medical malpractice case prior to suit which was ultimately in both parties' best interest.
