Medical crime law
Dealing with criminal charges is particularly unpleasant for healthcare professionals. This is often accompanied not only by criminal sanctions, but also sometimes irreparable damage to their professional reputation. Healthcare professionals regularly consider themselves bound by their own ethics to help people and, above all, not to harm their patients. This makes it all the more difficult for them to face accusations of not only failing to do so, but also of being personally guilty of criminal offences. The accusations are often levelled at them more objectively and loudly than at other defendants.
From the perspective of a defence lawyer trained in medical law, it is therefore important not only to competently classify and evaluate the charges, the police investigation file or later, if necessary, the charges brought by the public prosecutor’s office, but also to work towards dealing appropriately with sometimes questionable allegations and then, above all, to prevent any disadvantages from being carried forward.
