What's Good With Schurmer and Wood Podcast.


Feb 17, 2020

This week attorneys Earl Schurmer and Lauren Wood answer the question “What is Medical Malpractice?”  Earl Schurmer, who has over 25 years of experience litigating medical malpractice cases, goes into great detail about what qualifies as a health care provider in a medical malpractice case, explains what MICRA (Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act) is, why MICRA is important, and how you prove a health care provider was negligent. Attorneys Earl and Lauren discuss the myriad reasons why MICRA is not only an outdated law but is unfair to plaintiffs or those who have suffered an injury as a result of the negligence of a doctor or hospital. They also discuss the reasons why medical malpractice cases are more difficult, the various defenses the health care providers and their attorneys often present, and why it is important to find the right attorney to handle your medical malpractice case.
