Medical Negligence

Thomas L. Caradonna, licensed in Missouri and Illinois, is national trial counsel for one of the country’s largest and leading national clinical reference laboratories. He is responsible for all clinical and anatomic pathology-related lawsuits filed against the lab throughout the United States. He acts as lead counsel, responsible for directing all of the lab’s defenses, up through and including trial, working directly with, and reporting to the lab’s in-house Director of Litigation.

At any one time, Tom will be lead counsel in approximately 20 pending cases. Currently, he is defending cases in the following states:  Missouri, Illinois, California, Nevada, Oklahoma, Texas, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey. These cases primarily allege medical-related negligence or malpractice. A team of Lewis Rice attorneys experienced in medical negligence cases assists in defending these lawsuits. We 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 have extensive experience in retaining medical experts from around the country in various specialties to defend the actions of the lab and its employees, and maintain 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.

Tom has more than 25 years of experience representing physicians and other medical providers in various medical-related cases.
