Court Reporting Agencies Provide Complete Medical Malpractice Litigation Support
In today’s medical field, practitioners follow the Hippocratic Oath, which promises to patients primum non nocere or “first, do no harm”, leading potential medical treatments to be vetted thoroughly for faults before being administered to humans. However, this oath is not a full proof method of ensuring culpability, which is where medical law finds its place. Medical law is a branch of law that concerns itself with the prerogatives and responsibilities of medical professionals as well as the rights of patients. Should a breach of these rights or responsibilities occur, it is tantamount that a swift, legal solution be found to ensure restitution to either or both parties.
Our court reporting firms make it a priority to arrange comprehensive full litigation support. This includes producing detail-oriented court reporting and transcripts as well as multimedia trial presentations with thorough and succinct explanations to provide the jurors with an adept understanding of used and relevant medical terminology.

Dating all the way back to English Common Law, medical doctors have long held a tradition of holding confidentiality with their patients when it came to their medical history. Reinforced by today’s Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA), current confidentiality laws between medical practitioners and patients now cover legal issues presented by a culture where sharing and storing information has never been easier.
Negligence, Torts, and Malpractice
The word “tort” stems from the common word “torture” and is the unfair harm or loss sustained due to a civil wrong or tortious act. Negligence is considered a tort as it a term commonly used for when a medical practitioner fails in diagnosing or treating the patient which results in either injury or death. Other instances of medical malpractice resulting in harm to the person or psyche are also considered torts and can be the base for a liability suit.
With the upswing in controlled medical substances available, criminal law and ethics have had an unfortunate rise in the medical law field. Laws dealing with pill trafficking, euthanasia, reproductive rights, and more have become a hotbed of strong public and political opinion, making them difficult to tackle without bias.
