Medical Malpractice/Healthcare Liability

For over thirty years, the attorneys at RRD have successfully and aggressively defended healthcare providers of all types in thousands of cases. Our representation has included hospitals, doctors of all specialties, nurses, psychologists and therapists. With ten attorneys and a full time nurse consultant, RRD has one of the largest practice groups in the state devoted to medical liability. We have litigated in every judicial district in the state and have obtained successful results in the Supreme Court, the Appellate Court and in licensing proceedings before the Department of Public Health. RRD's attorneys are also routinely consulted regarding risk management issues and prelitigation matters.

With a penchant for detail and the ability to develop a creative defense for each case, RRD's success has been due in large part to the development of a customized, case-specific plan of action for each matter it handles. Whether it be trying a case to verdict or pursuing early resolution by way of dismissal, summary judgment, mediation or arbitration, RRD has been able to identify early on the appropriate resolution plan for each client's case so that the best and most cost effective result is achieved.
