Professional Liability - Health Care

Meagher & Geer has been defending health care professionals and hospitals for more than 80 years.

Our established and experienced Health Care team is absolutely committed to serving the needs of our medical care providers and their insurers. We understand the gravity of medical malpractice claims, including their impact on the careers of physicians, nurses and other medical professionals, and on the future of a hospital or other health care organization. We are sensitive to the challenges faced by those in the health care industry and we excel at crafting individualized solutions for navigating complex litigation. We believe it's our job to insulate our clients as much as we possibly can from the typical disruptions of a pending lawsuit, allowing them to focus on what they do best – taking care of their patients.

We serve health care organizations and laboratories in medical and dental malpractice and medical negligence claims in Minnesota and in North Dakota. Our team represents hospitals, clinics and long term care facilities, and their employees, as well as other licensed health care professionals of all medical disciplines, including:

• Chiropractors                     • Optometrists            • Podiatrists
• Dentists                             • Pharmacists             • Psychologists
• Nurses                               • Physicians                • Social Workers

In addition to claims of professional negligence, we have significant experience representing health care professionals in disciplinary actions involving licensure and practice privileges.

Our trial lawyers are formidable advocates who have achieved a track record of success and a respected reputation among the courts and our peers. We are skilled in trial preparation and strategy, and are equipped to mount a vigorous defense on behalf of our clients. Many of our attorneys possess previous experience in the health care industry, and utilize their insight to the benefit of our clients in these matters.

We have successfully defended matters involving complex medical issues and large damage exposure. Representative cases include claims of:

• Anesthesia complications   • Delayed diagnosis     • Interpretation of diagnostic studies
• Birth trauma                        • Failure to diagnose    • Wrongful death
• Brain injuries                       • Misdiagnosis            

Many of our attorneys are members of elite legal organizations such as American Board of Trial Advocates, American College of Trial Lawyers, International Academy of Trial Lawyers, International Society of Barristers, and Litigation Counsel of America.
