Medical Malpractice Defense

The defense of medical malpractice cases is a cornerstone of the Saalfield Shad litigation practice. For decades, the firm’s attorneys have defended and tried cases involving hospitals, long-term care facilities, ambulatory surgical centers, physicians, nurses, ARNPs, and other licensed health care providers against allegations of negligence.

Some of our attorney’s areas of experience include:

  • Catastrophic Brain Injury
  • Labor and Delivery
  • Claims of Misdiagnosis
  • Medication Errors
  • Surgical Errors
  • Wrongful Death
  • Falls with Injuries
  • Pressure Ulcers
  • Documentation Errors
  • Administrative Actions Involving Florida’s Birth-Related Neurological Injury Compensation Association (NICA)

Every case is different, which requires a customized approach based on the goals of our clients and the facts of the case. Our attorneys, with assistance from qualified experts, analyze complex medical issues and strive to achieve cost-effective and efficient resolution of lawsuits. However, in the event your case goes to trial, our attorneys have substantial trial experience and will defend your case with the experience that has led to past successes.

Risk Management and Litigation Avoidance

Saalfield Shad attorneys also work closely with clients to understand their business goals and provide proactive advice to prevent litigation. Attorneys in the firm provide customized presentations to the facilities’ nurses and other practitioners to keep them informed of litigation trends and address their specific risk management concerns.
