What is a certificate of merit | Connecticut med. malpractice.

Peter J. Bartinik, Jr.
Civil Trial Attorney, Practicing Law in Connecticut

In this video I explain the rule that requires a certificate of merit for every medical malpractice case in Connecticut.  So, this means that before you file a case, you must obtain a good faith certificate from a doctor stating that malpratice has occurred.  You can't just bring the case because you want to.  You have to have it reviewed by a doctor who states that malpratice has occurred.  

If you have any question about medical malpractice contact the lawyers at The Bartinik Law Firm, 100 Fort Hill Road, Groton, Connecticut at 860-445-8521 or toll free at 888-717-4211.
