INCIDENT INVESTIGATION • LITIGATION SUPPORT
We inspect and test medical devices to determine their safety and function relative to reported failures. Our Electrical Safety Manual provides guidance to clinical engineering professionals.
When a medical equipment becomes an issue in a lawsuit, we provide litigation support services to plaintiff and defense counsel - including, as appropriate, expert deposition and trial testimony.
People We Work With
RISK MANAGERS • ATTORNEYS • HTM PROFESSIONALS
We work with Risk Management, Patient Safety, and Quality Assurance professionals. Medical equipment-related incidents are relatively uncommon and independent technical assistance can be valuable.
We support plaintiff and defense attorneys in cases that involve medical devices and the utility systems that support them. Our services include report writing, deposition, and testimony at trial.
We collaborate with HTM professionals: Clinical engineers, biomedical equipment technicians, and HTM program managers. When you need independent testing of equipment, we're ready to help.
"I have worked with Matt Baretich on several product liability cases. In some, he simply provided useful consulting information. In others, he thoroughly investigated the biomedical engineering issues and gave strong deposition testimony as an expert witness. In all cases I have found Matt to be extraordinarily knowledgeable and competent, as well as congenial and accommodating. He is a pleasure to work with."
