You pay for medical malpractice and other insurance policies. However, your best interests may not always be in mind when you are served with a lawsuit. You need a first line of defense to try and avoid any legal proceedings. This is the basis for Doctor’s Advocate.
We work for you vigorously from the minute a frivolous suit comes down to get your case dropped as soon as possible. Here’s how our process works.
Our legal team will work with you to get the facts surrounding the case. We will also work with your medical malpractice, insurance carrier-appointed, or private attorney. Our goal is to detect frivolous cases and set up grounds to seek immediate dismissal.
If we determine the case to be frivolous, we urge the litigating patient to drop the case and engage in open communication with you so that you can both be spared time and money.
Whether the case’s grounds falls into medical malpractice, workers’ compensation, employment practices liability, or general liability, we have found this process to be helpful in lawsuits being dropped.
If patient mediation is not successful, we will immediately appoint a private counsel at no additional cost to you who will:
We work closely with some of America’s leading, most respected law firms. As a Doctor’s Advocate member, you will have access to these firms’ personnel at pre-negotiated, discounted rates.
If your case is deemed not to be frivolous, or if your case does continue through to court, you will have peace of mind knowing that the best legal minds are in your corner. And our team will be with you every step of the way.
