Worse health care output than desired may be a result of several causes - even due procedures can fail. In case of such negative consequences, representing either the patient or the healthcare provider, preliminary examination of the incidence has to be performed both from legal and from medical aspect in order to get answers to the following major questions:
A decision on the co-operation and the optimal way of claim enforcement can be made upon an estimation of costs and possible results.
Most effective way of approach is sending an email but also phone calls and telephone messages are answered as soon as possible.
All substantial activities are performed by the Chief Attorney. In extraordinary case of his absence, adequate substitution is arranged. Should different specific knowledge applied for a case, such as legislation of another country, informatics etc., further expert can be involved upon the consent of the Client.
After making the contact discussion and evaluation of the case is the first step. This can happen personally or via email (considering the data protection prescriptions). This preliminary consultation is free of charge. If the parties decide to co-operate, the mandate is arranged in a written contract.
In case of medical malpractice cases the representation of the patient (or relative) is affordable only if the success views are realistic and the predictable costs are not disproportionate.
It is important to take into consideration that unlike medical procedures which often have to be performed within minutes or hours, legal actions may last for several months or years: a lot of patience is needed from the side of the claimant.
We are ready to provide assistance in the forms of single consultation, solution of a circumscribed problem, representation at the Courts, audit, training, legal support for commercial, research or other projects or permanent legal-strategic counseling. A preliminary consultation is necessary also in these cases in order to understand the needs of the Client, the nature of task and the resources needed which can be followed by the agreement on the co-operation details. The first consultation – except when the intention of the Client is to have a single occasion of counseling – is free of charge for Companies and Institutes, as well.
If the Client already has another legal representative, a second co-operation can be formed only upon the consultation with and approval by this first lawyer – with highest consideration of ethical requirements of the attorneys’ profession.
