Ohio and Florida Professional Liability Defense Attorneys

Ohio Health Care Provider Negligence Claim Lawyers

At Bonezzi Switzer Polito & Hupp Co. L.P.A. , our Professional Liability Practice Group defends insurers of hospitals, nursing homes and medical professionals against allegations of negligence and malpractice. Based in Cleveland and representing large and small insurance companies across Ohio, we have extensive experience investigating and litigating malpractice and negligence claims.

At the outset of any litigation, our lawyers will comprehensively review the claims against the insured. We will discuss potential liability as well as viable defenses against the claims. At BSPH, this review will be based upon defending against thousands of claims. Although nothing is certain in litigation, we want our clients to be as informed about events as possible. Our firm also strives to provide cost-effective representation. If there is a way to vindicate your interests that does not involve the expense and uncertainty of trial, we will find it.

We also understand that in medical malpractice litigation, trial is very often necessary to accomplish our clients' goals. Therefore, BSPH is always a suitable choice in complex litigation that appears likely to go to trial. Our law firm has assembled vast resources with which to defend our clients. Our firm has an updated medical library and a database of expert witnesses in a variety of fields. We understand how to prepare defense witnesses for trial and pretrial depositions, and maintain an active motion practice.

Of course, our record of success in trial speaks for itself. Since our firm's founding in 1998, our firm has tried more than 125 cases before state and federal courts in Ohio and Florida. The majority of these cases were either defense verdicts or plaintiff's verdicts that were less than the plaintiff's final settlement offer.
