Attorney Dan Burke of Parker Waichman explains how his firm saves and preserves evidence in your medical case. It's important to show not only medical records but any type of evidence possible in case your lawsuit goes to trial.
If you've suffered an injury from a hip or knee replacement surgery, you will need to have another placement surgery. During that time, we will have asked the doctors to pull the defective device and components out of your body and bag them for evidence. They may also pull samples of tissue damage or death. The items are then placed in a solution and preserved for a later date. We then hire a third party company to store the materials until when and if we need them to prove your case. We follow an important protocol to make sure the chain of custody can be proven and that the evidence cannot be tampered with and is available at the time of your trial.
