When you call the Kopec Law Firm, you speak directly with medical malpractice lawyer Mark Kopec, not an assistant like at other firms. He is top-rated and specializes in medical malpractice. Unlike other lawyers in this directory, he is not looking for other types of cases. He is available to help you throughout Maryland, DC, and other states. The consultation is always free. Call the name you know and can trust!
Lawyer Mark will listen to you and answer your questions when you call. The focus will be on your medical condition, the treatment you received, and the outcome of the treatment. Lawyer Mark will use his 30+ years of experience to analyze whether the doctor violated professional standards and caused your injury. He will give you advice. In that initial call, he can usually tell you if you have a medical malpractice case that he can further investigate.
If lawyer Mark can investigate the case, the first step usually is to get the medical records. A signed authorization will be necessary to order them. The medical records will contain many details about the treatment you received. They will be an essential source of information for the case investigation.
If you already have your medical records, please tell lawyer Mark. That will save time in the investigation.
The next step is certification. The law requires that an independent expert doctor certify that medical malpractice occurred before we can file a medical malpractice case. That doctor is in the same specialty as the doctor you saw, but the doctor will have no connection to the doctor or hospital in your case. Usually, the independent doctor is out of state.
We can file your case in court if the independent expert doctor certifies that medical malpractice occurred.
