New York Medical Malpractice Defense Attorneys

Medical malpractice suits expose physicians to serious financial risk and professional liability. If the amount of the claim is greater than the amount covered by a professional insurance policy, a physician’s personal assets could be at risk. Additionally, medical malpractice cases can give rise to medical license issues.

At O'Connor First, we understand the importance of proactively defending against medical negligence claims. We will work to achieve a successful outcome, whether it be a summary dismissal of claim, a reasonable settlement or favorable jury verdict.
