How Our St. Louis Medical Malpractice Lawyers Can Help

When involved in a medical negligence claim, it is vital to work with an experienced attorney knowledgeable of the laws in place that help protect medical providers. Our skilled team of attorneys has decades of trial experience and in-depth knowledge of legal defenses against medical malpractice claims.

While we are aggressive litigators who prepare every case as though it were going to trial, we work hard for a dismissal or to limit cases at the earliest appropriate stage. This approach involves developing innovative defense strategies and constantly monitoring changes and developments in case law affecting medical malpractice issues. In the event litigation does reach the trial stage, we have a long record of successfully winning cases in the courtroom.

Although every case is different, what remains consistent is the way we handle these cases from the outset. Upon assignment, we review records, available pleadings, and the state of the practice to develop a strategy in conjunction with our client to achieve the most desirable outcome. We then execute that strategy, which may involve pursuing an early dismissal from the suit, or a longer-term objective of a successful trial result. We frequently consult with other practitioners and experts to assist with the defense of the case, and working hand in hand with our client and the team we assembled, we do our best to protect professional reputations and conclude matters quickly.
