Sophisticated Defense Against Medical Malpractice Claims

Medical malpractice cases are notoriously complex. They often boil down to a “battle of the experts,” which means that selecting the most credible and thorough expert witnesses is one key to success. A proactive defense strategy requires anticipating the plaintiff’s approach and building strong evidence to undermine their case.

At The Cavanagh Law Firm, P.A., our attorneys excel at all aspects of medical malpractice defense. They draw on a network of trusted experts in the medical field to diligently prepare all aspects of the case. Our lawyers understand how to qualify well-vetted expert witnesses and how to challenge the credibility of opposing experts. Among other skills, these strengths help position our clients for success.
