Here are answers to common questions our medical malpractice defense lawyers receive. For specific legal advice, we recommend contacting our Buffalo office to schedule a confidential consultation with one of our attorneys.

  • What do I do if I am served with a complaint? You must notify your medical malpractice insurance carrier immediately. We can assist with that if necessary.
  • A patient's attorney has sent me a letter seeking medical records. What should I do? You may be obligated to comply. One of our lawyers will examine the letter and determine for certain. We will work together to gather any documents requested, which often include electronic medical records, voicemails and emails.
  • How long can I wait before I answer the lawsuit? As with any litigation, time is of the essence. The sooner you contact us, the more likely you will prevail in litigation.
