Medical Malpractice Defense Litigation

McCandlish has a team of experienced lawyers and support staff dedicated almost exclusively to defending claims of medical liability.

For over two decades, McCandlish’s lawyers have defended the largest hospital systems in the District of Columbia and Virginia, as well as community hospitals, emergency care centers, long-term care facilities, specialty and primary care practice groups, individual physicians and other licensed health care providers. McCandlish has a team of experienced lawyers and support staff dedicated almost exclusively to defending claims of medical liability.  Our lawyers have tried cases in state and federal courts at both trial and appellate levels throughout Northern Virginia and the District of Columbia.  When a case merits pursuing an alternative resolution, our lawyers have extensive experience resolving matters through mediation, arbitration, and private negotiations.

As trial lawyers for the leading referral centers in the Washington metropolitan area, McCandlish lawyers have defended cases involving nearly every medical discipline, from primary care to sub-specialty practice, from neonatology to geriatrics, from intensive care to outpatient in-home care.  We know that a successful result requires a comprehensive understanding of the unique medical issues, facts and circumstances involved in your case, as well as the ability to explain complex medical concepts in terms easily understood by jurors.  There is no equivalent to a knowledge base built on many years of legal practice dedicated to medical malpractice defense litigation.  We are experienced medical researchers, and seek out the leading voices in medicine and health care to advise us and testify on behalf of our clients when necessary.

In addition to medical malpractice defense, our lawyers advise and represent health care providers facing administrative proceedings before state licensing boards, as well as medical staff disciplinary proceedings and credentialing matters.  The same knowledge and experience required to defend health care professionals in medical malpractice lawsuits is applicable to these types of administrative proceedings as well.

For more information about McCandlish’s medical malpractice defense team, or to request an initial consultation, we invite you to review our attorneys’ profiles, and welcome you to contact them directly.
