Personal Counsel In Malpractice Actions
We offer advice to physicians who are involved in malpractice claims. Unfortunately, malpractice insurance carriers do not always act in the best interest of the physicians who pay good money for coverage. Conversely, the insurance carrier may try to settle a nuisance claim that could have devastating consequences to a physician’s license or insurance premiums. The lawyer assigned to defend you is being paid by the insurance company and by the hour so there is often an incentive to unnecessarily prolong litigation. If you find yourself the subject of a malpractice claim, you should hire an attorney to represent your interests, both with respect to the claim and to ensure the insurance carrier acts in your best interest. Our experience prosecuting malpractice claims uniquely positions us to objectively advise you on the real strengths and weaknesses of a malpractice claim.
