Medical Negligence

Corey works with a team of skilled lawyers at Lewis Rice to serve as national trial counsel for one of the country’s largest and leading national clinical reference laboratories. The team is responsible for all clinical and anatomic pathology-related lawsuits filed against the lab throughout the United States.

The Medical Negligence team has defended cases in state and federal courts Missouri, Illinois, California, Maine, Nevada, Oklahoma, Texas, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey. These cases primarily allege medical-related negligence or malpractice, and our lawyers take the lead on all aspects of the litigation, including developing defense strategies, preparing all pleadings, handling all discovery, including depositions of witnesses, defending company representatives at deposition, retaining defense experts, and acting as lead trial counsel. We also maintain relationships with experienced defense counsel around the country to assist us as local counsel in these cases.

Corey has extensive experience in defending these cases from intake to final resolution – this includes developing a deep understanding of the client’s business operations and the knowledge of the science underlying the claims at issue, retaining medical experts from around the country in various specialties to defend the actions of the lab and its employees, defending corporate representative and employee depositions, taking the depositions of various fact witnesses, treating physicians, and expert witnesses, pursuing dispositive and pre-trial motions, and trial preparation.
