“WHAT IS A MEDICAL MALPRACTICE LAWYER?”

‘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.”
