Digital Forensics and E-Discovery for Medical Malpractice
Medical Malpractice lawsuits may arise when a patient believes he or she has been harmed by a doctor or nurse (or other medical professional) who fails to provide proper health care treatment. Since Medical malpractice cases are regulated by a set of complex rules which can vary considerably from state to state, attorneys who have experience handling medical malpractice lawsuits are almost always involved. These cases also present a myriad of concerns with regard to the collection and preservation of data that relates to these cases. Chief among those concerns are HIPPA privacy requirements, as both medical practitioners and patients have concern about the safety of the data collected. Of equal importance are concerns regarding retrieving data from medical equipment and repositories, as well as authenticating the validity of the data itself.
