The backbone of our litigation practice is defending healthcare providers in malpractice cases. We defend nursing homes, assisted living residences, skilled nursing facilities, independent living facilities, continuing care retirement communities, hospices, home health agencies, private duty nurse agencies as well as hospitals, physicians, nurses, and other healthcare providers.
The firm has multiple offices, each with a litigation team, allowing the firm to provide broad geographic coverage throughout Virginia, Maryland, the District of Columbia, North Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia.
In the past 10 years Hancock Daniel has secured defense verdicts in more than thirty cases in which plaintiffs sought at least $1 million. When millions of dollars are at stake, Hancock Daniel trial lawyers are routinely called upon to defend the case due to their specialized expertise and insight.
Hancock Daniel trial lawyers work as a team. Each case is staffed with two malpractice litigators and a paralegal. We also routinely employ nurse paralegals to assist us in the defense of our clients. As a result, our clients gain the competitive advantage of our team of experienced professionals. Our directors and associates have defended malpractice cases through trial and appeal, as well as in all types of alternative dispute resolution proceedings.
The expertise Hancock Daniel trial lawyers have in this complex area of the law inures to the benefit of each client. We pride ourselves on efficiently delivering superior results while involving our clients throughout the litigation process to keep them engaged and fully informed.
