About Medical Malpractice & Hospital Liability Defense

Neubert, Pepe & Monteith’s Medical Malpractice & Hospital Liability Defense group defends hospitals and physicians in complex, high exposure medical malpractice cases. We are recognized as a leader throughout the state of Connecticut. The firm provides counsel on risk management issues facing health care entities and practitioners. We represent individual doctors and practice groups before the Department of Public Health and in Probate Court proceedings. We work extensively on trial and appellate matters representing hospitals, group practices, and individual physicians in state and federal courts. All partners in the medical liability group have lectured throughout Connecticut on risk management and credentialing issues. Additionally, topics also include patient/physician relationships and litigation strategies for hospitals and individual physicians.

Neubert, Pepe & Monteith understands the demand for high quality, cost effective legal services. We work closely with clients to develop the best strategy to achieve a practical solution to litigation and risk management needs. Neubert, Pepe & Monteith’s team approach to case management begins with assigning a partner full responsibility for all aspects of the litigation. The partner addresses clients' concerns throughout the case. Further, the partner teams with an experienced associate and paralegal to achieve a cost effective and successful outcome. This structure allows for task delegation to appropriate skill levels, reducing the overall costs of defense. It is our goal to work in a collaborative effort with your risk management personnel and system. Moreover, we seek to provide the most cost-effective defense without sacrificing quality in our representation.
