Christine Thomson's practice focuses on medical malpractice actions and medical device cases, though she also represents plaintiffs in other personal injury actions with extensive medical damages. Christine is a graduate of Duke University and has practiced law in Charlottesville since 1985, when she graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law.
Christine is lead counsel in medical malpractice actions currently pending throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. Because of her experience, other law firms frequently associate her as trial counsel in cases involving complex medical facts and legal issues such as sovereign and charitable immunity. Among these are cases of delayed diagnoses of cancer, such as breast, cervical, and colon cancers; and malpractice in the areas of obstetrical care, spine surgery, endoscopies, emergency room care, psychiatric care, in-hospital assaults, and others. She also represents many clients with defective medical devices, such as failed hip implants.
