Medical Malpractice defense litigation has taken on new complexities during this COVID-19 public health crisis. We have been on the ground providing counsel to our frontline clients since the earliest days of the coronavirus crisis. As conditions of the pandemic evolved on a day-to-day basis, our attorneys provided counseling so that healthcare facilities could adapt quickly and provide the very best care during this emergency. Our experienced team of attorneys is ready to assist our clients with emerging claims related to the pandemic.
Our attorneys represent doctors, nurses, and other heathcare professionals as well as health systems, hospitals, nursing homes, long term care facilities, and other healthcare businesses like in-home nursing, rehabs, surgicenters, urgent care, residential treatment, and physical therapy.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we expect to see a surge of litigation that will challenge the scope of immunity statutes. The increases in COVID-related cases may include areas like delay of care; lack of preparedness; PPE shortages; equipment or testing shortages; visitation issues; and infection control, just to name a few. Our attorneys have decades of successful trial experience in various types of complex cases and stand ready to counsel and aggressively defend our clients through this new era of COVID-19.
