Suffolk County criminal attorney Jason Bassett releases a new article (https://jbassettlaw.com/should-i-hire-an-attorney-if-i-am-a-medical-professional-under-investigation-for-wrongdoing/) explaining the role of an attorney in a medical malpractice investigation. The lawyer mentions that being a licensed medical professional in New York State requires them to follow professional practices defined by a variety of state laws and regulations. If these professionals fail to follow the requirements, they may face disciplinary action for professional misconduct.

“Disciplinary actions can damage or even ruin a medical professional’s career, so it is imperative to hire an Experienced Attorney the moment they are aware that any investigation has begun. No medical professional should ever speak to any investigator without proper legal representation. An experienced attorney will protect their rights and fight for their ability to continue in their chosen profession,” says the Suffolk County criminal attorney.

The lawyer explains that medical professionals always have a right to representation. The agency in charge of the investigation will not automatically assume that the person is guilty just because they hired a lawyer. The most important thing is for the professional to hire a lawyer so that their rights and career are protected.

Attorney Jason Bassett adds that the OPMC usually has “direct referral” hearings after a medical professional has been convicted in the disciplinary hearing. These hearings are referred to as direct referrals because they are based on a referral by the Clerk of the Court from the Department of Health.

In the article, the lawyer says that a physician should hire an experienced attorney right away. An experienced lawyer may be able to help the physician find ways to reduce the record in front of the OPMC Hearing Committee. An attorney may also be able to advise the physician on the best steps they can take to show the committee that they have accepted responsibility for their actions.

According to the defense attorney, “Once the report is available, the OPMC invites the physician for an interview about the investigation. While the doctor has the right not to accept an interview, the law demands that the OPMC allow the physician to be interviewed. Physicians can make the biggest misconceptions in OPMC investigations. Only after a case has been investigated thoroughly will the OPMC conduct interviews.”

Lastly, the lawyer emphasizes the importance of having a skilled attorney when it comes to matters like sealing criminal convictions. Having an experienced lawyer may be able to help the person live a normal life after serving their sentence.
