Medical, Dental & Professional Malpractice
When a professional is sued in malpractice, it has different implications and can feel more personal than most civil litigation. Regardless of the field or specialty, it is particularly difficult to be blamed for undesired results when you have only attempted to help your patient or client. The attorneys in our Medical, Dental, and Professional Malpractice group help our clients navigate the litigation process and achieve the best possible results. We pride ourselves on early analysis of such claims so that we can effectively counsel our clients regarding defense strategy. We represent hospitals, physicians and other medical professionals, dentists, attorneys, corporate directors and officers, engineers and other design professionals against professional negligence claims from commencement through trial, and when necessary, appeal. In addition to utilizing outside experts and our own attorneys, our staff includes paralegals, a nurse paralegal, and a dental hygienist with several decades of combined experience. In addition, we assist our clients with legal issues collateral to such claims, including hospital and insurance credentialing, licensure investigations, and asset protection. We work with a variety of carriers and self-insured clients in these fields.
