Hospital Malpractice Defense

Nassau County, Long Island and Downstate New York Malpractice Defense Law Firm

Protection against Potential Liability

The success of any hospital or medical facility requires the adherence to a variety of state and federal healthcare regulations. A comprehensive risk management consultant takes a proactive approach to potential professional and medical malpractice lawsuits. At the law office of Montfort, Healy, McGuire & Salley LLP, we provide medical providers with thorough risk management advice, and aggressive medical malpractice defense.

Founded in 1950, our firm built its practice on the principles of honesty, integrity, and communication. Our lawyers are available at any time to answer questions about liability and malpractice defense. Contact our managing partner to receive advice about the best strategy to protect your medical institution against liability.

Risk Management

We assist hospitals and medical professionals assessing their risk of malpractice liability associated with the daily operations of a medical facility. When an unusual case subjects your facility to potential liability, it is wise to seek advice from a law firm with an in depth understanding of the operations of a healthcare facility. Attorney Claudia C. Glacken, a partner in the firm, understands the concerns of a hospital, because she has been a registered nurse since 1968.

We advise hospitals and medical institutions about the risks associated with:

  • Medical malpractice liability
  • Hospital administration liability
  • State and federal licensing and regulatory compliance

Medical Malpractice Defense

Medical malpractice threatens the continued success of a medical facility and healthcare professional. We will advise you on the amount of financial reserves your facility needs, and what effort you should take in settling certain claims.

Medical Professional Discipline

Another important practice area of our firm is representing doctors, nurses, and other licensed medical professionals during state and federal licensing hearings. After a patient makes an allegation of medical malpractice, the state licensing board may either temporarily or permanently suspend a medical professional’s license. We represent medical professionals during the initial investigation and through the legal appeal of a suspended medical license.

Whether you are a self-insured hospital, or an insurance company, we will conduct the malpractice defense necessary to protect your financial success.
