Mark F. - Virginia Injury Lawyer


Mark F., a Virginia medical malpractice lawyer who has experience both as a patient's personal injury lawyer and defense lawyer, explains why many medical malpractice claims do not get resolved by settlement. When a doctor settles a medical negligence/surgical error claim, that settlement gets reported to a national data bank and is viewed as a negative mark on the doctor's record. Therefore, the doctor and his insurance company will probably do all they can to fight against even legitimate malpractice claims. This is why it is so important for an injured patient to have experienced, top notch legal representation from lawyers who are not afraid to actually take a case to trial.
