Areas of Practice

Medical Negligence

Our medical malpractice work is concentrated in the representation of hospitals, physicians, and nurses against suits filed in the various state courts in Illinois and Missouri. The successful defense of medical negligence claims depends in large part on the ability to understand the technical aspects of the medical or nursing care at issue. Our attorneys, assisted by registered nurses who are members of this practice group, are experienced in dealing with complicated medical issues in a variety of disciplines, and effectively communicating with judges and juries about those technical issues. For example, in 2003, we secured the largest defense verdict in Missouri, successfully defending a medical malpractice claim seeking $10 million.

We work closely with in-house counsel in developing case strategies and defenses, and frequently consult with some of the leading physician and nurse experts from across the country. Additionally, our trial lawyers are a significant added resource on issues arising out of medical, nursing, or hospital malpractice. Greensfelder’s experience, infrastructure, and outside contacts make it uniquely suited to handle this type of litigation.
