Medical Malpractice Defense

Freund, Freeze & Arnold takes special pride in the defense of medical negligence claims. A potent mix of resources and expertise are available to the health care client during the difficult experience of being sued. Some of our attorneys devote essentially all of their practice to the defense of these claims, which means they are frequently in court, in front of juries on behalf of the defendant physician, hospital, nurse and similar professionals. Just as in clinical practice, there is no substitute for experience, and we are proud of our service and our track record on behalf of the health professions. When you are being trashed by an opposing expert witness, you will have a lawyer who has been there before, who knows the medicine, who knows what the right questions are and who knows how to ask them.

Decades of experience trying these cases means decades of experience evaluating and preparing them as well. You will get straight answers about your chances and the money value of the claim. We advise, you decide. We won't "sugar coat" things, but we do keep in mind just how psychologically and emotionally tough these cases can be for our client. You will be kept informed of events in your case as they happen. And should you decide to try the case, as most of our clients do, we will be there with you with the resources needed to do it right.

Our medical negligence attorneys are well acquainted with top experts in every field of medicine who are willing to serve as expert witnesses. We have access to the National Institutes of Health medical literature database, and have co-operative agreements in place with major health libraries. When your case is tried, you can be sure that the evidence will be there to back you up. Our attorneys value exchange of information, and are active in the Ohio Association of Civil Trial Attorneys, the Society of Ohio Healthcare Attorneys, the American Board of Trial Advocates and other professional organizations.

A strong support staff enables us to provide competent, efficient service. Our medical negligence attorneys are assisted by paralegals and nurse-paralegals who assist with communication, collection and analysis of medical records, locating and retaining experts and investigation of opposing witnesses. While cost never trumps quality, we make a concerted effort to spend your money wisely and with maximum effect. For example, the firm has invested in state of the art video conferencing equipment for each of its offices. Many out of state depositions can be conducted with this technology, at a substantial saving to you.

Medical negligence practice includes representation of professionals before licensing boards. Our attorneys appear before the Kentucky and Ohio Medical and Nursing Boards and other licensing boards as required by our client's needs. And when the threat comes from the inside, as in the break up of a practice partnership, our contracts and commercial litigation experience can fuse business litigation with a deep appreciation of practice realities to reach a result that is right for you.
