Everything You Need To Know About Medical Malpractice In Virginia


We wrote our book, “A Patient’s Guide to Virginia Medical Negligence Law” to empower you to make the right decisions in pursuing a medical malpractice  case.

In chapter one of our book, we outline for you the characteristics of a good case. These are the characteristics that we or any experienced attorney will be looking for in deciding whether or not to recommend to you the filing of a lawsuit.

In chapter two, we outline for you what are the characteristics of a good lawyer. Medical malpractices cases are difficult cases, are complex cases, and having an experienced attorney is an important factor for you in pursuing a case.

In the remainder of the book, we walk you through a case from its advent to its conclusion. We start by talking about the investigation of a case. We talk about the discovery involved in learning facts about the case. We talk about the designation of expert witnesses to support your case. And finally, we talk about the appeal of the case.

Our goal in writing this book is to emphasize to you that only meritorious cases should be brought and that you’re best served by having experienced counsel represent you. You can download a free copy of our book on our website or by contacting us at our office.
