In today’s litigious healthcare environment, physicians, nurses, hospitals, and adjunct healthcare professionals and institutions are often immersed in medical malpractice actions. Because medical malpractice cases focus on professional judgment, claims can be made fairly easily and require time-consuming discovery and litigation of the merits of the case. A bad outcome can mean catastrophic damages.
However, due to our many years of working with and defending physicians in all types of practices, including such diverse specialties as neurosurgeons, anesthetists, and obstetricians, as well as nurses, hospitals and other healthcare professionals and institutions, we are aware that a malpractice action is more than a case about financial liability: it is an attack on the healthcare professional’s reputation and competence. As a result, a medical malpractice action carries with it ramifications far beyond the four corners of the lawsuit, including issues of licensure, hospital privileges and insurability. Given the serious implications of these claims, our defense, from intake through resolution, is guided by individualized attention to each client throughout the litigation process coupled with meticulous attention to detail in our handling of the case. By partnering with the client to create a clearly delineated defense strategy which takes into consideration all of his or her interests, we help the client achieve the best possible resolution.
Avoiding liability and the attendant damages is where our attorneys excel. Our medical malpractice attorneys have been litigating such cases for more than two decades and are highly experienced in employing effective strategies that favorably resolve even the most difficult and complex of cases. Our familiarity with the nuances of local venues is complemented by our partnership with a full array of experts in every conceivable field of medicine. Retaining the right expert can often mean the difference between success and failure.
Although we have a long track record of successful litigation, we also understand that not every case belongs in the courtroom, and that claims with obvious merit should be identified and settled without delay. Whether the strategy is to settle or defend, our attorneys always commit to the highest level of excellence in preparation and execution and stand and deliver with strength and confidence.
