HEALTH LAW AND PUBLIC LIABILITY

Over the last few years, Health Law has become a flourishing specialty which is autonomous within the regulations formerly included in the Health Law or the Legal Medicine. The main task of the legal professionals who are experts in this multidiscipline area is both to identify different medical specialties and their legal and practical application to everyday life, and to know the Professional Liability Insurance of the health professionals in order to achieve the best extrajudicial or amicable settlement to any potential claim for medical negligence or malpractice.

Our lawyers know and apply these criteria as a priority before putting forward any medical-sanitary or damage liability claim to the Public Administration or to a private or public entity.

The diversity of medical specialties, obligations affecting health professionals, public or private entities and insurance coverage of hospitals and health workers, and the liability of those involved in the medical assistance provided within the civil, penal and governmental order, require the performance of experienced lawyers with a solid knowledge of this specialty.                                

De la Vega & Asociados Law Firm has a leading team of experts in Health Law and Public Liability ready to coordinate and counsel on the following matters:

  • Claims and compensations for medical negligence in the public and private health sectors, diagnostic or treatment errors, omission by a doctor or voluntary neglect in any health specialty are managed by experts who are qualified to determine damage assessment and feasibility.
  • Claims on Public Services Liability of the Public Administration (falls in public roads, accidents in fairground rides, staircases, elevators, means of transport, works etc.).
  • Negotiation and amicable settlement with insurance companies covering hospitals and health workers to avoid long and unnecessary judicial proceedings.
