Malpractice Attorneys Without Borders Program Announced to Aid Legally Underserved Countries

  • 1.7K

NEW YORK, NY – The National Legal Aid and Defender Association announced today the establishment of MMAWB (Medical Malpractice Attorneys Without Borders), a group whose mission statement includes “serving those individuals in impoverished areas of the world in which access to malpractice attorneys is low or non-existent.”

The new organization, who plans to follow groups like Dentists Without Borders and Doctors Without Borders, had the following announcement on their website:

“MMAWB will work tirelessly, by the hour, to provide legal assistance abroad to those who desperately need it.  We strive not solely to provide a patchwork, temporary legal outpost in underserved countries, but will aim to deliver continuity of legal care, establishing long-term, holistic litigious intervention.”

According to the announcement, the group’s aid-based council will come largely from “legal mission trips,” partly subsidized by the National Legal and Defender Association, which describes the tours as “an excellent opportunity for established attorneys to give back to those impoverished individuals around the globe in need of legal assistance, and an eye-opening experience for law students to see firsthand the true magnitude, and consequences, of [medical malpractice] attorney shortage outside of the U.S.”

When asked to comment on the new organization’s establishment, Medecins Sans Frontieres (or Doctor’s Without Borders) immediately pleaded the Fifth Amendment, in what appeared to be a Pavlovian response to commentary regarding attorneys of any kind.

At press time, the MMAWB’s website contained an additional announcement stating that they would also be taking cases related to worker’s compensation, motorcycle head injuries, and diet pill lawsuits.  Oh and if you have used an ice machine, had mesh placed in your body, or have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, please contact them as well.

    The irony is the ad for the injury attorney that popped up at the bottom of the page.
