Defense of Medical Malpractice Actions

The firm’s experience covers the spectrum in health care. We have represented medical professionals, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, correctional health care companies, clinical laboratories, medical schools, and academic medical centers in hundreds of high stakes cases. In fact, we have secured defense verdicts in cases in which plaintiffs have sought millions of dollars.

Cases have involved a variety of medical negligence allegations, including failure to diagnose and misdiagnosis; medication, nursing, surgical and post-operative errors; diagnostic and pathological interpretation; wrongful death, catastrophic personal injury, and permanent disability; and deliberate indifference to serious medical needs.

We serve providers of all specialties from obstetrics and neonatology to geriatrics and long-term care. Whether you practice preventive medicine or provide critical care to the most complex patients, we defend the medicine and the provider. We have represented professionals in all areas of specialized pediatric, adult and surgical care, and in all settings from the level 1 trauma center to the local correctional facility and beyond.

We have represented nurses, mid-level providers, physicians, surgeons, ophthalmologists, dentists, pathologists, radiologists, and behavioral health professionals. Acknowledging that our clients have different needs, we meet each provider where they are geographically, personally and professionally.

Our attorneys are supported by knowledgeable nurse paralegals who conduct research, obtain and organize medical records, and facilitate expert witness reviews.
