We also provide research consulting services to other law Firms to support their work on medical negligence/medical malpractice. We have recorded several successes in our engagements in this area. HELC has successfully supported various healthcare Facilities in implementing remedial measures and provided support in dispute resolution.

We have also represented patients and obtained judgments in civil and criminal suits on cases that bother on medical negligence.
