Medical Malpractice Defense
Ellis & Winters has extensive experience in cases that involve medical services and alleged medical or professional malpractice. Our attorneys have represented and defended hospitals, psychiatric institutions, a national laboratory and individual health care practitioners throughout North Carolina. The attorneys at Ellis & Winters recognize the impact of settlement on individual practitioners and, therefore, approach every malpractice action as a case we intend to try to verdict. As a result, we have extensive experience defending medical malpractice actions in jury trials. In the past twelve months we have tried several cases to a successful resolution.
Our attorneys have collectively handled hundreds of malpractice actions and bring this breadth of experience to each new matter. We have developed an extensive expert witness network and have been retained to supply information on several prominent plaintiffs' experts. Our attorneys have served as guest speakers to state, regional and international medical societies and organizations on topics such as the successful defense of malpractice actions, as well as risk management measures to prevent exposure to malpractice claims. Through our years of serving as malpractice defense trial lawyers, we have developed an extensive library on medical issues and conditions, to which we routinely refer in an effort to maintain a high level of understanding of relevant medical issues in a cost-efficient manner. We bring our collective knowledge and experience to each case assignment in an effort to achieve the best results for our clients.
