California Insurance Defense Attorneys Who Advocate for Healthcare Providers
Protecting vital healthcare businesses throughout the Los Angeles area
Insurance companies perform a valuable service for medical facilities and professionals. But insurers are also businesses that must protect their assets from fraudulent, unsubstantiated or overstated plaintiffs’ claims.
The attorneys at Davis, Grass, Goldstein & Finlay have a history of working in the legal departments of large national insurance companies. Our legal team has a century and a half of experience in medical and insurance litigation and counseling. Davis Grass was founded with the mission of aggressively representing insurance companies and the hospitals and doctors they cover.
How we serve insurers and medical care providers
Our insurance defense law firm advises you and helps you take appropriate action when plaintiffs sue your policyholders for medical malpractice, medical device products liability and hospital premises liability. Consider the following ways in which we can help:
- Medical malpractice — Professional liability insurance protects doctors’ financial interests in medical malpractice lawsuits and Medical Board of California administrative proceedings. Proving that a doctor is not responsible for injuries to a patient saves the insurance company from making unnecessary, unjust financial payments. Our lawyers work hand in hand with insurance companies to strategize an aggressive defense to plaintiffs’ allegations of negligence.
- Products liability — Medical products are designed to improve patients’ lives. But sometimes, devices meant to help can also cause discomfort, pain or other unintended residual effects. Problems with a medical device may arise from a variety of factors, such as the patient’s health at the time a prosthesis was implanted or inexplicable rejection of the artificial part by the patient’s body. Neither the manufacturer nor the surgeon should be held responsible for these types of problems. We help insurance companies staunchly protect these medical corporations from products liability claims.
- Premises liability — Even though most medical facilities employ reasonable precautions to warn and protect visitors, accidents can happen. Considering the high volume of people passing through and the fast pace and inherently chaotic environment of many emergency care centers, it is easy to understand how someone might trip and fall or otherwise sustain injury on the premises. But facilities that take appropriate safety measures should not be held liable for circumstantial accidents. Often, injuries occur because of a plaintiff’s own actions and not because of the hospital’s negligence. Our law firm defends insurance companies against premises liability claims to protect their interests and those of their policyholders.
