Experienced Counsel for Difficult Cases
Litigation against physicians and hospitals places a high burden of proof on the injured party. An injury itself is not automatic grounds for a malpractice lawsuit. For example, patient claims against doctors or hospitals must show a clear deviation from the accepted standard of care. To prove malpractice, our medical malpractice lawyers consult with experts in the given field of medicine to examine medical records and confirm how medical standards were breached.
UQUR possesses extensive knowledge from our long experience in disability, health, and life insurance litigation. We understand that presenting a credible case means learning the medical issues as well or better than the doctors.
