Certificate of Merit - Info from Virginia Medical Malpractice Lawyers

In this video, Richard Shapiro and Mark F., two Norfolk medical malpractice injury attorneys, discuss the importance of having a certificate of merit when filing a medical malpractice claim. A certificate of merit is a document certifying that the plaintiff’s attorney has reviewed the facts surrounding the case, consulted with an independent medical expert, and that the medical expert concluded that the plaintiff’s claim has merit. This requirement was put in place to try and reduce the number of so-called frivolous lawsuits.
