Medical Malpractice Defense
All of our lawyers specialize in medical malpractice defense. We have earned an excellent reputation for our aggressive representation of physicians, hospitals, and practitioners of various specialties such as dentistry, podiatry, physical therapy, and chiropractic care. Our experience covers a wide range of medical issues, including misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, brain injury, obstetrical malpractice and birth trauma, prescription and medication errors, and hospital malpractice.
We handle all aspects of medical negligence claims, from the risk management and investigation phase, where liability exposure is assessed, to the representation of our clients at mediation and trial. Our lawyers are experienced in all forms of alternative dispute resolution and know how to limit professional liability exposure prior to litigation. In the event that trial becomes unavoidable, we have been extremely successful in obtaining defense verdicts on behalf of our clients.
We also represent our health care clients’ interests in matters concerning staff privilege disputes, professional discipline, and medical licensing issues. We frequently represent our clients in disciplinary and administrative law hearings at the state and local levels.
In all matters dealing with professional liability and conduct, our attorneys excel at locating and utilizing the most prominent expert witnesses on issues involving standard of care, breach, intentional wrongdoing, causation and damages.
