How We Find Doctors to Testify

Virginia medical malpractice lawyers Kevin Duffan and Ed Booth talk about the fact that, under Virginia law (specifically Code Section 8.01-20.1), you need a licensed doctor to sign off and certify your claim before you can proceed with a malpractice case. Ed talks about the firm's protocols for finding a doctor who will review your file and potentially validate your claim.  For example, our team of medical negligence attorneys routinely look outside Virginia to find a doctor to testify. We caution our clients that medical malpractice cases are some of the most expensive to litigate and this is in large part because of the need for medical experts to review medical files and testify at trial.
