Medical Malpractice Law

Professional negligence in medical malpractice matters includes complex medical issues and large damage exposure.

Modern medical practice necessitates reliable and expert legal guidance. The profound expertise of our lawyers, combined with Coffey Modica’s legacy in insurance defense, has garnered us a diverse clientele that includes top-tier physicians and leading teaching hospitals.

We are consistently chosen to represent medical professionals and establishments in high-value lawsuits, and this trust isn’t misplaced. Over four decades, our robust team of trial lawyers has secured numerous defense verdicts and advantageous settlements. Our established court reputation often leads to reduced claims right from a dispute’s inception, resulting in significant financial and reputational benefits for our clients. Our commitment to nurturing the next generation of lawyers ensures our courtroom prowess remains intact for years to come.

Coffey Modica has expertise across all medical specialties, such as obstetrics, orthopedics, oncology, and more. We represent a gamut of healthcare professionals, from doctors and nurses to radiologists, pathologists, and other healthcare workers, extending to managed care groups, home care agencies, and private emergency rooms. To maintain our edge, we use cutting-edge technology and occasionally collaborate with our Appellate Practice team.

Our defense also extends to clients facing disciplinary hearings before professional boards.

A notable surge in nursing home litigation, especially in the backdrop of large punitive damages, has been observed in recent years. Our lawyers have a deep understanding of the pertinent state and federal regulations and adeptly defend such cases, evidenced by our recent successes in COVID-19-related claims against healthcare facilities.

Prevention is always better than cure, and the best way to tackle medical malpractice lawsuits is to avert them. With our experience, we identify operational areas within medical practices and facilities that can be improved to minimize liability risks. We frequently offer workshops to medical professionals on topics like effective record-keeping and enhancing patient-doctor communication. Our risk management services also encompass mock trials.

A major asset to our practice is our team of skilled paralegals, which includes registered nurses dedicated to examining medical records and delving into medical literature. Additionally, we collaborate with medical luminaries from premier institutions and renowned teaching hospitals, ensuring that our defense strategies are informed and robust.
