Medical Malpractice Defense
Our health care law attorneys have defended physicians, nurses, paramedics, dentists, hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities, immediate care facilities, and other health care providers in medical malpractice actions for over thirty years. With this experience, our lawyers have developed the keen insight required to understand complex medical issues and the unique ability to breakdown and effectively present these issues to a medical review panel and when necessary to a judge and jury. Along with this insight, our Firm combines a work ethic and diligence that leaves no stone unturned in its defense of cases.
In addition to attorneys who have devoted their practices to the defense of medical professionals, we also have on staff experienced medical professionals who assist our attorneys in navigating the medical complexities of any particular case. We also have compiled an extensive expert witness database as an additional resource. Our medical malpractice defense team takes pride in providing excellent service to our health care clients, not only by explaining complex legal issues and answering questions thoroughly, but also by keeping our clients informed of the status of their cases.
