Malpractice Defense Law

Medical Malpractice Defense Experience

As one of California's leading Administrative Law, Health Care Law, and Professional Licensing Law firms, Simas & Associates, Ltd., has extensive experience defending professionals and licensees from claims of negligence. This experience translates directly to the defense of professionals against claims of malpractice by patients, clients, and consumers.

That experience has led Simas & Associates, Ltd., to successfully defend dozens of malpractice claims and lawsuits on behalf of our doctor, attorney, veterinarian, broker, chiropractor, podiatrist, physical therapist, nurse, and optometrist clients.

Steve Simas provided excellent support in negotiating a settlement agreement in lieu of a malpractice claim. This was my second case with him that resulted in an excellent outcome. I plan to consult with him on my future legal needs, and I would recommend him to my colleagues and friends.—Dr. Singh

Medical Malpractice Defense Strategy

Defending a professional malpractice case requires a thorough understanding of the profession. This involves understanding the laws, regulations, and training requirements that oversee the profession and develop the known and applicable standard of care. This then requires an examination of the facts, and a demonstrable and convincing case that the standard had been met in the particular case at hand.

Alternatively, it may involve proving that even had a different technique or practice been used to meet the standard, it would have led to no better result for the complaining patient, client, or consumer.

Be it through Civil Litigation, Alternative Dispute Resolution, or a negotiated settlement, the Simas team uses our skills and experience representing professionals to develop a defense and aggressively advocate on behalf of our clients. In the health malpractice field alone, we have defended claims involving:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Obstetrical malpractice and birth trauma
  • Prescription and medication errors
  • Hospital malpractice

Simas & Associates, Ltd. has extensive experience working with professionals' employers—be they medical practices or law, insurance, or accounting firms—medical and professional Expert Witnesses, and malpractice insurance carriers. We hope to make the malpractice defense as seamless as possible. In turn, we hope to take the pressure off our clients and let them get back to doing what they do best—providing competent care and services to the community as a whole.
