Medical Malpractice

Our attorneys defend health care clients, including hospitals, ambulatory centers, physicians, nurses, chiropractors, optometrists, nursing homes and allied health professionals against malpractice claims and lawsuits. Recognizing medical malpractice claims can involve complex medical issues, procedures and terms, our attorneys are comfortable with these specialized subjects and often consult and retain top medical specialists to testify on behalf of our clients.

We represent clients in cases involving claims of failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis, medication errors, surgical and/or post-operative complications, and labor and delivery error. Many cases can be most effectively and economically resolved out of court, but when it best serves our client’s interests, we are prepared to litigate cases through trial.

Our attorneys represent other major health care providers and physicians across a broad spectrum of care and risk liability/management.  Additionally, our team works with attorneys in other practice groups to provide added value and services to our health care clients. 

We participate in root cause analyses, employee training and risk management service programs, detailed investigations (and settlement) of significant pre-litigation claims, and presentations to groups of health care practitioners, such as physicians, residents, medical students, respiratory therapists and psychologists. Our presentations cover health care topics, including, but not limited to, HIPAA, EMTALA, FDA, FTC, Medicare/Medicaid, Medical Malpractice 101, physician contracting, fraud and abuse, RAC audits, as well as non-health care related areas such as employment law, workers' compensation law, corporate and transactional law.
