Medical negligence

Every year, nearly ten million European citizens travel abroad to receive specific medical treatment, including diagnostic analysis, surgery and recovery.

The statistics show how this traffic of medical tourism points particularly to several countries in the south of the European Union, including France, Italy, Greece and Spain.

In some occasions, upon returning to his home country, the patient discovers that something has gone wrong and faces the consequences of an improper treatment or a defectively implanted device.

Again, issues related to product liability regulation, conflict of laws, domestic rules of negligence and liability, etc. rise, and the bereaved patient and/or his home legal counsel might need to seek advice and support in the country where the medical treatment was performed.

LegalAbroad provides comprehensive support in this matter, advising on local substantial and procedural issues and providing, as necessary, expert reports in relation to local law and assessment of damages pursuant the same.
