Medical Malpractice Defense

Experience you can count on: we take no shortcuts in the defense of medical clients.

At Young Moore and Henderson, we have a large and very experienced team of medical malpractice defense attorneys who represent physicians, dentists, hospitals, nursing homes and other health care providers. While the partners on the team are veteran trial lawyers who have successfully taken many medical malpractice claims to defense verdicts in both state and federal courts, our attorneys also play significant roles in investigating potential claims before suit is filed and, when appropriate, using arbitration, mediation and other means of dispute resolution to resolve lawsuits short of an actual trial. In addition, our attorneys have many years of experience in the representation of health care professionals before the various licensing boards in North Carolina. (See our sections on Licensing Boards and Commissions, Nursing Home/Long Term Care Litigation, and Professional Liability for additional services.)

One of the secrets to success in the defense of any claim alleging medical malpractice is retaining the best possible expert witnesses to review the cases and testify for the defendant. The members of our medical malpractice defense team have worked with thousands of excellent medical experts over many years and are able to find the right experts to assist with each case. We understand that being named as a defendant in a case of alleged medical negligence is a stressful event for any health care provider, and our attorneys work to minimize that stress by making sure that our clients are fully informed about the progress of the case, that their questions are promptly answered, and when the time comes for them to testify, we make sure that they are fully prepared for the exigencies of trial.
