Dr. Tamm works as a specialized lawyer in the field of medical-law. Since he has proved particular theoretical knowledge and practical experience concerning medical-law, he has acquired the permission to entitle himself “Specialized Solicitor for Medical-Law” (Fachanwalt für Medizinrecht).
As such he also helps patients from the U.S. to get a compensation for damages in cases of assumedly medical malpractice. So at present Dr. Tamm e.g. works on cases concerning spine surgeries (cervical spine, artificial disk replacement (ADR)) done in Stenum respectively Sommerfeld, Germany.
Working in the field of medical-law requires more than just the knowledge of the law. It also requires some medical-knowledge to be able to judge a case and understand what was done with / to the patient and if this was right or maybe wrong. So we think, being specialized in medical-law is essential for a proper representation of the client needing help in a malpractice case.
Compensations for pain and suffering are lower than in the U.S., but why not claim a compensation, if there is evidence, that the damage was caused by an avoidable doctors’ mistake? So don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Tamm, if you assume a case of medical malpractice:
