Medical Malpractice Law in Virginia is a “how to” guide to assist lawyers in the factual complexities and legal intricacies of medical malpractice litigation. Authored by some of the most experienced and highly regarded medical malpractice attorneys, it is the only book focused exclusively on the topic in Virginia. Even the most seasoned medical malpractice attorneys will find it useful.

The information is presented in a “chronological” format that takes readers through the sequence of events that constitute a malpractice claim, offering the perspectives of both attorneys for plaintiffs and attorneys for defendants. It includes statutory and case law authority, as well as recommendations regarding the use of discovery, experts, and medical records.
