Medical Liability, Compliant & Disciplinary Law

Medical liability is a delicate subject, not only for the victim, but also for the care provider.

Van Benthem & Keulen assists care providers and liability insurers when they are faced with civil claims based on negligence, complaints to disciplinary bodies or when they are faced with a professional association.

Our approach

We advise and litigate, defend and act proactively to resolve a dispute as efficiently as possible. Our specialists have extensive experience and in-depth knowledge.

They advise and litigate, for example, on liability for medical actions, causality and the extent of damage or personal injury. We are very well versed in procedural law and regularly conduct proceedings on the merits and partial-dispute proceedings. We also act as defendant or petitioner and have a large network of medical advisors and experts who also advise us on non-legal aspects that may be relevant to the case.
