Medical Malpractice Defense
Fowler Hirtzel McNulty & Spaulding represents physicians, hospitals, hospital systems, long term care facilities, practice groups and a variety of other health care providers in significant and complex medical negligence cases in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Our lawyers appreciate the need to aggressively approach the investigation and discovery of cases to move them quickly and efficiently to resolution. We have significant trial experience in large cases and have access to a large and varied group of effective expert witnesses. When settlement is a desired and practical option, we move quickly to resolve cases, utilizing both court affiliated and private mediators as needed.
We have handled cases across the medical spectrum, including catastrophic cases involving death, brain damage and paralysis. We have handled significant cases in a wide geographic range in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Our lawyers know the jurisdictions, the judges and the other lawyers who regularly practice in the field.
We also have significant experience in emerging areas of professional liability claims, including procedures such as tattoo removal, laser hair removal and liposuction and other procedures performed by “Spa” or “Clinic” providers.
Jay Gebauer, a partner with the firm has tried over 40 medical malpractice cases to verdict in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. He has handled complex matters in diverse practice areas, including Obstetrics and Gynecology, Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine and Orthopedics.
Joseph Bongiovanni, a partner in our Philadelphia office handles a broad range of matters related to professional negligence. His experience includes defending cases either brought directly against health care providers or through allegations against institutions and employers for medical errors or issues such as improperly administered restraints, improper staffing or inadequate supervision.
As with all of our cases, we strive to focus closely on the issues of the case at hand, moving effectively to identify and address the key medical, causation and damage issues that will determine the strategy for this case. We target the discovery that will identify that necessary information so we can reach decision points quickly and accurately. We work closely with our clients to meet their needs and aggressively defend their interests.
