Fighting for Their Clients in the Medical Community
Boyle Brasher LLC has a dedicated group of trial attorneys and legal assistants who concentrate their practices in defending medical malpractice lawsuits. The firm has been handling medical malpractice cases since they first began to be filed. Our attorneys represent physicians, hospitals, nursing homes, osteopaths, nurse practitioners, physician's assistants, physical therapists, medical clinics, diagnostic laboratories, other healing arts professionals, ambulance companies and all other health care providers.
Approximately 70 percent of all medical malpractice cases in the jurisdictions in which Boyle Brasher LLC practices are either won by jury verdict or dismissed prior to trial. In order to prevail, plaintiffs must prove through expert testimony that the physician, hospital or other medical provider has deviated from accepted medical standards of care. Most often the firm's attorneys and staff are already familiar with the medical issues involved in a malpractice lawsuit and can readily contact the most qualified experts either locally or nationally as required by each individual case. Through Boyle Brasher LLC's experience and consultation with these expert witnesses the firm is able to identify the medical issues upon which the case can be successfully defended.
