Andrew D. Brine of Murphy Battista LLP Discusses Five Important Skills Of A Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Industry: Legal Services

Vancouver, British Columbia (PRUnderground) February 8th, 2023

Medical malpractice is a highly specialised area of law. There are complex legal and evidentiary issues to sort out. Identifying “who” was involved in the negligent act can require evaluating the role and liability of multiple professionals in a long chain of events in different healthcare settings. Once you know who was involved, counsel must accurately assess whether they did or did not breach the standard of care that applies in the case at hand and whether the breach of that standard caused the injury or injuries claimed in the lawsuit. If you can overcome those hurdles, you must then address the nature and extent of the losses and the type and amount of damages appropriate to compensate the victim(s).

Andrew Brine, a 2023 ThreeBestRated® award-winning medical malpractice lawyer from Vancouver, says an effective medical malpractice lawyer should have the following:

  • Exceptional client communication skills to put a client at ease and gather the necessary information to properly evaluate a claim.
  • Expertise in medical negligence law and experience pursuing such claims along with proven advocacy and negotiation abilities.
  • A thorough understanding of how to identify and evaluate medical evidence and the standard of care that applies.
  • Access to medical experts who may be required to prove a claim or refute defence witnesses, and the ability to harness their input.
  • Experience with a wide range of injuries and what is needed for future care.

All these skills are required to bring a medical malpractice case to a successful conclusion. “Lawyers who focus on medical malpractice and understand both sides of these cases are invaluable to ensuring that injured people get the best possible chance of receiving full and fair compensation appropriate to their unique situations,” shares Andrew.
