‘Lawyer of the Year’ Victor Pribanic answers questions about Medical Malpractice in this exclusive interview.

MT: What information do you need for the free, initial consultation?

Victor: “We’ll need general background information, the event or events that the patient or family thinks were result of negligence or mistakes. We need to know the type of injury and timeline for treatment. Sometimes patients have only vague recollections, but we can gather a lot from medical records. We’ll then have experts and in-house staff with medical training review the records and see if the doctor or hospital was guilty of negligence that harmed the patient.”

Impact of a Medical Malpractice Attorney

More than 13,000 doctors in the United States have been disciplined for serious incompetence or misconduct, including drug abuse, negligence, substandard patient care, Medicaid fraud and patient sexual abuse. According to a study by Washington Health Group, most of those physicians continue to treat patients and retain their licenses.

“Most doctors are good doctors…”

State confidentiality laws make it nearly impossible to find out the background information on a doctor, even if that doctor has been disciplined for incompetence or negligence. Recent studies confirm that a small percentage of doctors are responsible for the vast majority of injuries caused by substandard care. This reaffirms our general perception that most doctors are good doctors, and worthy of our trust.

Veterans Administration Malpractice Claims

We also represent people who have been injured due to medical malpractice in Veterans Administration (VA) hospitals. The process for handling a VA malpractice claim is markedly different from a standard malpractice claim. Claims must be filed in federal court. There are time limits and fee limitations to consider. Also, decisions are determined by bench trials rather than jury trials. If you are pursuing a claim against a military hospital, it is important to consult with an attorney who is familiar with the process.
