Our attorneys regularly defend physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants and other health care professionals, as well as large practice groups, nursing homes, community hospitals, and nationally recognized teaching hospitals. Over the last 50 years, we have defended nearly every type of medical malpractice claim, including claims of mistakes in diagnosis, delays in diagnosis, birth injuries and surgical errors. We also represent physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals before state licensing boards and hospital peer review and credentialing committees. Through our broad experience in defending all types of medical malpractice claims, we have developed an extensive network of experts throughout the country to assist in presenting our clients’ defense.
We regularly counsel hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living facilities in medical and allied health staff credentialing matters, confidentiality of health information questions and risk management issues.
We understand the stress that professionals undergo when their care is challenged in a lawsuit and are mindful of the time away from practice that a medical malpractice defendant must invest while a lawsuit is pending. We do our best to provide our clients with the attention that is necessary to assist them through what, for most healthcare professionals, is the most difficult period of their career.
