The Brooks & Berne, PLLC Medical Malpractice Team has years of experience in handling Medical Malpractice lawsuits, in the areas of General Surgery, Bariatric Surgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Infectious Disease, Pediatrics, Emergency Medicine, Long Term Care and Rehabilitation (Nursing Homes), Podiatry, Dental and Radiology.
We thoroughly analyze each case from the moment we receive it with one goal: winning. For each Medical Malpractice suit we assign a team that includes a trial attorney, an associate attorney, and a paralegal. We start by attacking any procedural flaws in the suit. We learn the medicine relevant to the allegations, and we consult with respected experts in the same medical field. We thoroughly pursue discovery matters, aggressively conduct depositions, and engage in motion practice that frequently results in the dismissal of the suit. We also prepare each case as if it were going to trial and our opponents know that from the moment the case begins. We have a reputation for being fearless in a courtroom and as a result, when a case must be settled, we can settle it for far less than firms that avoid conducting trials. When our malpractice team takes on a case, we give the client the best possible chance for the best possible outcome.
