As pressure to contain medical costs has increased, nurses have taken a larger role in patient care. That has caused an increase in the number of nursing negligence cases.
Nurses can face a number of negligence claims, including failure to properly monitor and assess a patient’s condition, failure to properly supervise a patient, incorrect drug administration, and others. When a nurse faces a negligence claim, finding an experienced nursing negligence defense lawyer is the first step in preserving his or her valuable reputation in the medical community.
McCleskey, Harriger, Brazill & Graf has a sophisticated team of nursing negligence defense lawyers with a strong track record of successfully defending nurses and other health care providers in a broad array of negligence cases. Our legal team knows how to analyze a case, find its weaknesses, and prepare an effective defense.
Our goal is to resolve the matter quickly and to protect our client’s legal rights. In the decades that we have been representing health care providers in negligence and malpractice claims, we have settled dozens such claims on terms that have been extremely favorable to our clients. We have also tried many cases to successful verdicts and won others on appeal.
Our nursing negligence defense team includes lawyers who have spoken and written extensively on legal issues affecting health care providers, so our knowledge of the medical and legal issues affecting negligence claims is sophisticated and exceptionally current. In addition to representing health care providers in medical malpractice matters, our attorneys provide a broad array of non-litigation services to doctors, nurses, hospitals, physicians’ practices, and other providers. We also represent nurses before the Texas Board of Nursing.
