Neurosurgeon Speaks About His Career as a Medical Malpractice Lawyer


When Dr. Lawrence Schlachter’s career as a neurosurgeon ended, he turned to law school to pursue his next career. Shortly after completing his education, Dr. Schlachter became a medical malpractice lawyer. Due to his extensive medical background, Dr. Schlachter was able to gain hands-on experience dealing with problems in the world of healthcare.

When asked what he saw most incorrect in the healthcare system while in the position of a medical malpractice attorney, he stated that there were various issues that became highlighted. He stated that he came into contact with many victims of medical malpractice who were unable to pursue justice for their injuries and harms. Now, he has dedicated his practice to examining each case detail by detail to ensure his clients have a fair chance at pursuing compensation.

Now, as a medical malpractice lawyer, he witnesses many healthcare professionals, such as doctors and nurses, attend court hearings and lie before the judge. However, because he has a medical background, he is now able to determine which issues or statement needs to be further explored. He goes on to say that many doctors try to protect themselves. As a result, they are restricted from speaking about true occurrences or issues they faced during procedures. He recognizes that these forms of deceit can leave a victim to face a lifetime of health consequences.

Dr. Schlachter states that the combination of his medical background and his judicial background gives him a keen eye for cases that seem faulty. For this reason, he is ready to stand by the sides of those affected by medical malpractice, wrongful death, and other damages that can occur when healthcare professionals act negligently, carelessly, or recklessly.
