Medical practitioner’s Liability

One of our most sustainable fields of activity in liability law is the area of hospital and medical practioner’s liability.


We represent care providers in all matters related to liability, both in court and out of court if they are sued for malpractice. At our clients' request, we will also take care of the entire out-of-court claims handling process and the social insurance carriers' recourses.
 
Another aspect of our service is to perform in-house training courses on  all legal issues pertaining to claims settlement.   
 
We also advise hospitals and physicians on how to prevent mistakes and minimize risks. Compliance, which plays a vital role in the hospital area, is becoming more and more important in this context.

Another focus of our work as consultants is the law governing the criminal liability of physicians (medical criminal law). We defend physicians, midwifes and nursing staff in lawsuits that are based on typical criminal offenses, such as manslaughter, bodily injury caused by negligence or failure to render assistance.
