Benefit from Professionals Experienced in Proper Medical Conduct

Functioning as a branch of the New York State Department of Health, OPMC or the Office of Professional Medical Conduct is tasks with investigating complaints related to medical care. The focus here is to look into complaints waged against physicians, physicians assistants, as well as, licensed and unlicensed residents in the medical field. Defense lawyers who specialize in this area are among the 184+K lawyers recognized by the American Bar Association in the state of New York.

We assist our clients in the OPMC area of specialty to not only provide representation but protecting the licensing of those in the medical field. Licenses do not simply equate the academic success of a physician or physician’s assistant. These also are symbols that allow these individuals to hold onto their roles and their salaries. This is why any case related to OPMC must be taken seriously, which is why we apply our experience to assist our clients in dealing with these challenges.

Defense lawyers, sometimes referred to as criminal defense lawyers perform a variety of intricate and complicated tasks as it results in casework. These are experts that may work on cases related to federal crimes or related to state crimes. They also participate in federal investigations when subpoenas and other legal techniques are necessary. The proficiency for these lawyers ranges the gambit and requires exceptional knowledge of the law.

Once a physician is contacted by OPMC and notified about an investigation of their practices, it is a good idea to hire a lawyer. Securing legal representation is important for every step of this process, from speaking with investigators or building a case, if necessary. Investigators have most often already spoken to the patient who has complained. They will want to reach out to the accused, but it is not recommended to do so without a lawyer. We understand these cases and can walk you through the process.

Here are some other important things to consider about OPMC cases:

Experience Matters

Just like finding a lawyer for any other type of legal trouble is important, it is just as important for cases of malpractice. Any physician in this situation should first of all look for someone who is experienced with these cases in New York. The Balance Careers points out that these defense lawyers need to have an array of skills and experience to properly represent clients.

We showcase our skills and experience in the areas of investigating the facts, interviewing witnesses, and researching case law. Each OPMC case is different as it relates to the patient, their condition, and the type of treatment they received. As defense attorneys, it is our responsibility to build a defense and to develop an effective case strategy, based upon the circumstances.

Confirm Malpractice Coverage

Those who work in certain roles in the medical field are familiar with having malpractice insurance. It is very important that a client confirms what their coverage is so that they can get the legal protection that they need. This can be done usually by contacting your malpractice representative to verify what the coverage is and its details.

These policies are designed to accommodate the representation of physicians and other medical professionals against claims. Policies of this type are also referred to as medical professional liability insurance that can be used when a patient alleges negligent acts that cause some sort of injury. Many who have not had to use this before are not sure what is covered.

We encourage our clients to familiarize themselves with this, as soon as, possible. If it turns out that these cases are not closed after the OPMC investigation, there will be a need for defense procedures. Once we are contacted by the prosecuting attorney about the findings, pending allegations, and disciplinary actions, another level of work begins.

Surrender of licenses, suspension of licenses, and even probation can lead to lucrative losses, which is why we prepare to represent our clients in advance of investigation findings. Our goal is to help our clients get back to their normal lives by getting favorable results for them in these cases. We know that these are daunting situations, but will work for you and your professional life.
