Hawaii Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Doctors, surgeons, and other medical professionals owe their patients a duty to perform with a certain degree of skill and care. When a medical professional violates this duty of care, he or she has committed medical malpractice—also called medical negligence—and may be liable to the patient for any injuries caused.

Persuasive Malpractice Lawyers in Hawaii
Before a Hawaii malpractice lawyer can take a claim to court, he or she must present the injured patient's evidence to the Medical Claims Conciliation Panel (MCCP). The MCCP conducts informal hearings into claims against health care providers and issues advisory decisions. While the MCCP's decisions are not binding, they are required to help the parties and their Hawaii malpractice lawyers evaluate the merits of their cases prior to litigation.
At Edmunds Verga & Omonaka, our Hawaii malpractice attorneys know how to present convincing arguments to the MCCP. Senior partner John S. Edmunds served as a judge on the panel and has a thorough understanding of their requirements for issuing a favorable decision, experience that helps many clients prevail in negotiations. In addition, when a case goes to trial, our lawyers are experienced in even the most complex litigation matters. In 2008 our expertise and successful representation led to our Hawaii medical malpractice attorneys being listed in Hawaii Super Lawyers in the area of medical malpractice.
