It has become apparent to health care providers that the costs associated with medical malpractice claims are substantial. In some instances, this cost represents as much as 10% of a hospital’s budget. Sophisticated health care providers have come to recognize that in order to meet the problems associated with the medical malpractice situation, it is necessary to secure the services of a law firm not only well experienced in such matters, but one which also has the resources necessary to provide outstanding representation. Our attorneys and support staff work tirelessly to maintain the trust and confidence of our clients and carriers.
