Health Care Claims
The most common form of a Health Care Liability Claim is a claim for Medical Malpractice.
However, other varieties of health care liability claims may involve defective products, pharmaceutical issues, insurance bad faith, abuse, fraud and other causes of injuries and damages. These cases are almost always complicated, expensive to litigate and involve many different parties. Attorney Robert Davant has litigated and gone to trial on numerous health care liability claims including cases involving medical malpractice, fraudulent alteration of medical records, insurance bad faith resulting in a delay of treatment, wrongful death, defective medical devices and pharmaceutical recalls.
A case for Medical Malpractice based upon the negligence of a doctor can be a difficult task since these professionals are held in high regard in the community. Proving that a doctor, hospital or other health care provider was negligent requires a potential claimant to first obtain a Certificate of Merit from a qualified expert health care provider. Such an expert must describe how they fell beneath, or breached, the acceptable standard of care. As such, the expenses involved with a medical malpractice case can quickly become expensive before litigation even begins. At Davant & Associates, we accept a limited number of these types of cases because of these considerations. However, if we do accept your case, it means we believe in it and are willing to allocate the necessary expenses involved.
