Fulmer LeRoy & Albee offers professional expertise in the defense of medical practitioners against medical malpractice lawsuits. Negligence is a key element in the cause of malpractice, and it is essential to show that there was no negligence, that the medical professional practiced due diligence and concern. Disproving charges of negligence is the first line of medical malpractice defense. Contributory negligence is that which occurs when someone other than the medical professional is culpable for alleged injuries. The capable attorneys at Fulmer LeRoy & Albee investigate these claims thoroughly for signs of patient negligence in contributing to their own injuries, and said attorneys are managed by partner Michael W. LeRoy.
A patient may allege he had no informed consent, meaning he was not properly apprised of all the risks inherent in his procedure or treatment. Such claims may arise from the use of a treatment program which is new or radical to care for the patient. Professional attorneys will access other professional medical practitioners to give evidence in support of the line of treatment, called the respectable minority defense, and will thoroughly research and interview all principles involved to unearth evidence disproving claims of lack of informed consent. Many municipalities and states have Good Samaritan statues, which protect those who react in emergency situations to assist injured individuals. These laws protect providers of emergency aid, and Michael W. LeRoy may bring these statutes to bear in the case of a malpractice suit by those who were lent assistance by good Samaritans.
