Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Malpractice buddy
by Hewette, Roman M., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 43; 10108172
Abstract (Summary)

Each year the VA settles or loses over 4,400 medical malpractice cases, and these victims recover over $844 million. With the large majority of these victims choosing to seek private legal representation there is a strong market in providing federal medical malpractice legal counsel. This market is especially strong in a military city such as San Diego. This business will address this demand, and offer a unique service to veterans who wish to file a malpractice claim against the federal government. This business will gain a competitive advantage by addressing a niche market in three ways: the business will be an all veteran run organization, the facility will be strategically located to cater to federal hospitals, and while competitors cover various types of cases this business will specialize in only federal medical malpractice claims.
