Medical Negligence

Oliver H. Thomas 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. 

At any one time, this group of attorneys will be counsel in approximately 20 pending cases. The Medical Negligence team has defended cases in Missouri, Illinois, California, 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.

Oliver has extensive experience in retaining medical experts from around the country in various specialties to defend the actions of the lab and its employees, and our firm maintains an on-going defense expert database. We also maintain relationships with experienced defense counsel around the country to assist us as local counsel in these cases.
