Medical Malpractice Defense

We represent hospitals, nursing homes, physicians and nurses in complex, multimillion dollar lawsuits for negligence, medical malpractice and wrongful death. Our attorneys speak your language and are fully conversant, not only in medical terminology, but in the real world, hour by hour, pressures faced by every health care professional practicing today. Karen Butler practiced as an ICU nurse for twenty years prior to law school and maintains her license as an RN. In addition we engage the services of a registered nurse to organize, research and summarize records and medical issues. Our decades of experience representing the healthcare industry in New York has allowed us to develop and maintain a network of experts with outstanding credentials in every medical specialty. Our multidisciplinary approach to malpractice litigation has enabled us to successfully defend actions involving, among others, obstetrics, emergency medicine, orthopedics, surgery, oncology, radiology, family practice, cardiology, pediatrics and neurology.

Though we seek to obtain the swift resolution of lawsuits where possible we are always ready, willing and able to proceed to trial. We understand that there are implications to any medical practice action that is unique in litigation including ramifications to your practice, reports to The National Practitioner Data Bank and credentialing implications.

Our goal is to prevent litigation. We are available to answer your questions regarding risk management, quality assurance, root cause analysis and subpoenas. We also provide speakers, frequently at no charge, to speak to healthcare providers about risk management and litigation.

If you have any questions about medical malpractice defense please call and speak to one of our attorneys.
