Professional Malpractice Defense
Our lawyers devote much of their time to defending medical, legal, accounting, and other professionals in malpractice cases. The firm is proud of its reputation for excellence among physicians, lawyers, accountants, and other professionals.
Zuger Kirmis & Smith is uniquely organized to defend medical malpractice claims in a thorough and cost effective manner. In addition to highly trained paralegals and office personnel, the firm employs a staff of registered nurses as nurse consultants.
Nurses' duties include researching and summarizing medical records and medical literature. Using paralegals and nurse consultants to perform this function frequently undertaken by lawyers results in a considerable cost saving to the client.
Our lawyers utilize the services of medical and other experts throughout the country, including many nationally recognized expert witnesses, as well as prominent local experts.
