Medical Field Professionals Deserve Thorough Representation In Negligence Cases

One of the biggest threats to the health of a hospital, private practice or other health care provider is a malpractice suit. Medical malpractice defense is a core component of the professional liability defense practice at Lashly & Baer, P.C. We successfully represent hospitals, nursing homes, physicians, dentists and nurses in a wide variety of health care malpractice actions. And we’ve been doing it for over 30 years.

As a result of our experience, we are sensitive to the unique stresses and concerns that a malpractice claim imposes on the health care provider. We recognize that effective communication is key to a successful outcome. While we conduct aggressive discovery, we do not engage in filing needless motions that result in costly delays.

We regularly handle the following legal issues for our clients:

  • Abuse and neglect
  • Anesthesia injuries
  • Birth trauma
  • Congenital and drug-induced injuries
  • Emergency medicine
  • Errors or omissions in treatment
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Failure of timely medical intervention
  • Failure to properly manage or treat conditions
  • Laparoscopic injuries
  • Medication and nursing errors
  • Obstetrical, orthopedic, pediatric and radiology cases
  • Paralysis
  • Patient/resident falls
