Professional Liability: Medical and Legal Malpractice
Douglas, Denham, Buccina & Ernst’s Professional Liability group defends physicians and other health care professionals against liability suits. We have also obtained significant settlements and awards on behalf of victims of professional malpractice. We have acquired a comprehensive knowledge of medical-legal issues such as those presented in cases involving the failure to diagnose breast cancer, hospital-acquired infections, botched surgery, and optometric and dental malpractice. We understand the pitfalls and advantages associated with reliance on expert witnesses, and the limitations imposed by the Rules of Evidence on the admissibility of expert opinions.
We also represent lawyers accused of professional misfeasance, both before the Board of Bar Overseers and in court.
