Hospitals, long-term care facilities, medical groups and physicians and their insurers require timely, aggressive and thoughtful representation when claims are presented for healthcare-related professional liability (medical malpractice).
HCP’s medical malpractice team devotes its efforts exclusively to the representation of hospitals, physicians, dentists, and other allied health care providers. Our lawyers have tried hundreds of malpractice cases involving claims arising out of many different medical specialties and disciplines.
We are committed to providing early evaluation and aggressive defense through trial or other final resolution by:
Pursuing all avenues of early dismissal via negotiation or motion practice
Thorough witness preparation
Retention of top-notch experts
Implementing effective and creative trial strategies
We have represented physicians and health care facilities in matters involving medical staff privileges, including revocations of privileges because of quality of care concerns or alleged inability to cooperate with others. We have also represented physicians, private practice groups and hospitals in connection with unfair competition disputes and alleged violations of covenants not to compete.
Our philosophy in medical malpractice cases is the same as it is in other practice areas. We promptly identify and assess our client’s real problem. We then explore and explain the available options, and help our client resolve the problem in the most efficient manner possible.
