Professional Malpractice

Whether you are prosecuting or defending a malpractice suit against legal, medical, accounting or other type of professional, chances are electronic evidence hasn’t been a focus of the suit and a digital forensic examiner can be of assistance.

Yet, in a society where nearly 100% of business communication is conducted electronically, it is hard to believe that relevant information wouldn’t be found in electronic form. A digital forensic analyst can slightly alter the approach and a world of evidence can be made available. Areas that you may have never previously considered include:

  • Medical Malpractice: medical devices and the recorded data contained within, Radio Frequency ID (RFIDs), centralized data repositories that collect medical device telemetry, and Electronic Medical Records (EMR), e-mail
  • Legal Malpractice: time & billing software, expense reimbursement systems, accounting software, Client Relations Management (CRMs) systems, e-mail
  • Accounting Malpractice: electronic audit work-papers, time & billing software, accounting software, tax preparation software, CRMs, workflow management software, e-mail
