West Virginia Lawyers Defend Against Medical Malpractice Claims

Experienced Morgantown advocates represent healthcare providers

Defending against medical malpractice claims across West Virginia, Virginia and Ohio is a complex task that requires a qualified attorney. Even with damage caps, the financial loss and reputational harm of a mishandled malpractice case can be severe. At Linkous Law, PLLC in Morgantown, our attorneys are accomplished defense lawyers who advocate for doctors, hospitals and other medical providers accused of breaching professional standards of care. Whether your specific case relates to an alleged surgical mistake, birth injury or some other type of purported negligence, we have the trial experience and practical knowledge to win in court or emerge with a favorable settlement.

Proven insurance defense attorneys litigate all types of malpractice cases

Our medical malpractice defense attorneys have decades of combined experience in this practice area and have earned accolades from peers and clients. From the outset of representation, we can assess the claim and advise you of your legal options. We work with numerous experts to defend against a full range of medical malpractice allegations, including those involving:

  • Surgical mistakes — Plaintiffs and their attorneys often attribute medical problems to alleged errors that occur within the scope of a procedure. In these matters, we prepare an authoritative argument to show that professional standards were honored.
  • Diagnosis errors — Determining what type of medical condition someone has from a symptom or two is not an exact science. If a doctor is accused of a negligent failure to diagnose a problem or an incorrect diagnosis, we work diligently with experts to refute that claim.
  • Prescription problems — Complex prescription drugs, self-medication and the potential for dangerous interactions can lead to problems with pharmaceutical treatment. Our knowledgeable attorneys represent healthcare professionals in actions where they are accused of breaching their duty.

In these complex, high-stakes matters, knowledge of local courts and the potential jury pool is crucial. We have tried cases in the courts of 16 counties and are familiar with the litigation landscape throughout Virginia and West Virginia.

Accomplished firm delivers comprehensive advocacy in birth injury actions

Litigation that arises from alleged birth injuries can be complicated and emotional. Often, the cases involve speculative claims and high damage demands. Our firm has specific experience in these matters and can develop a thorough case to challenge allegations of medical negligence during the childbirth process.
