Physicians and health care providers receive many years of training to make a positive difference serving the health care needs of their patients. Being sued for medical malpractice comes as an affront to the professional integrity of the health care professional and can exact a high cost in time and reputation. Physicians and nurses need experienced representation to ensure that an effective defense is provided professionally and decisively to protect health care professional’s career. HHDU has several senior-level attorneys with more than 35 years each of trial and appellate experience in medical malpractice defense before state and federal courts.
Our attorneys also represent physicians and nurses in investigations and disputes arising with the Texas medical Board, Board of Nursing or other licensing agencies. We work closely with defendant health care professionals, their insurers, medical experts, biomedical and biomechanical engineers, as well as corporate or in-house counsel. Individuals and entities need thoughtful guidance and representation throughout all stages of the case, from initial investigation of claims through trial, and if necessary, the appeal process. Our team approach offers an effective and efficient approach to managing claims and litigation. Clients work closely with our attorneys to develop and implement a strategy that best suits the defined needs and goals – a trial, appeal or alternative dispute resolution proceeding.
