Medical Malpractice Defense

When a medical professional or medical entity is sued for professional malpractice, malpractice insurers trust Pennington, P.A. to defend their insured against high-stakes claims.

Our medical malpractice attorneys are seasoned trial attorneys, skilled at assessing when a case should be tried, and have repeatedly obtained defense verdicts. When trial is not appropriate, we excel at achieving reasonable settlements. In a field where cases can often take many years, we make every effort to resolve cases quickly and efficiently for our clients, emphasizing early and aggressive intervention in an attempt to resolve claims as expeditiously as possible. In our decades of practice, Pennington has developed professional relationships with leading experts in many important medical fields, to assist in providing the best defense possible.

Our cases include complaints of physical and emotional harm under Florida Statute § 766.102, Wrongful Death Act claims, and licensure matters before the Florida Department of Health and its various licensure boards. We take pride in mitigating damage to our clients’ professional reputation, as well as losses to their insurers. Our attorneys are admitted to practice at every level of the state and federal court system in Florida, as well as the Supreme Court of the United States.

We establish long-term relationships with our clients, whether they are claims specialists from large insurance companies, or small-practice physicians without insurance.
