Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice cases require retaining excellent medical experts to support your case.  Lee Livingston has spent almost three decades finding and working with experts who call balls and strikes fairly and who have the unique ability to both teach a jury about complex medical evidence and apply common sense. 


Each case involves a so-called "battle of the experts," and the defense bar is very good at finding doctors who believe the standard of care is met in many cases.  We study the medicine in these cases and are prepared to cross-examine doctors who sometimes defend the indefensible.
