Tenacious Mississippi Lawyers Defend Medical Providers Against Malpractice Claims

Experienced litigators represent Gulfport physicians, hospitals and other medical facilities

Doctors, nurses and other healthcare providers accused of harming or even killing their patients often face a physically exhausting and emotionally devastating process to clear their names. If you or your facility faces a medical malpractice claim, it is important to have an aggressive legal defense. The Gulfport attorneys at Franke & Salloum, PLLC have defended physicians, hospitals and clinics in Mississippi and across the Gulf Coast region against malpractice lawsuits for more than three decades. We take pride in being able to mitigate the damage to our clients’ professional reputations as well as losses to their insurers. If you are a medical practitioner charged with negligence, we will wage a vigorous defense on your behalf to protect your reputation, your livelihood and your professional license.

Knowledge attorneys defend clients in a range of medical negligence cases

We have extensive experience handling medical malpractice defense across a broad spectrum of areas, including such frequently litigated matters as:

  • Birth injuries
  • Diagnostic errors, such as failure to diagnose, misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis
  • Surgical errors
  • Misuse of equipment
  • Failure to adhere to the standard of care
  • Prescription errors
  • Tort Claims Act claims

When confronting allegations of medical malpractice, it is important your attorney has an in-depth knowledge of both the law and complex issues related to medical terminology, treatment and technology. Our lawyers have established professional relationships with leading physicians, pharmacists and other medical experts whose testimony will help bolster your defense.

Possible defenses in a medical malpractice claim

As seasoned malpractice defense attorneys, we understand that many claims lodged against doctors and medical facilities are baseless. We use our in-depth knowledge of the law to seek a dismissal when:

  • The two-year statute of limitations has expired.
  • The certification of consultation requirement is not met by the plaintiff’s attorney.
  • No pre-suit consultation with a medical expert was completed.
  • No notice was given to the defendant prior to filing a lawsuit.

Depending on the facts of your case, we may also be able to argue that there is an absence of causation or the plaintiff’s expert is unqualified to deliver an opinion on the relevant injury or specialty. Our extensive experience negotiating and arbitrating settlements, litigating trials and appeals, and representing professionals before state licensing boards often enables us to achieve beneficial resolutions in a timely manner.
