WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
Our attorneys have spent decades helping victims of medical negligence. Robinson & Associates has had several cases resulting in some of the largest verdicts recorded in their respective counties.
Our commitment to the success of our clients’ cases is unparalleled and is clearly demonstrated by our extensive professional experience and resources. Our team of experienced attorneys and medical professionals accepts cases in Maryland and Washington D.C. We also accept cases in other states on a case by case basis and there is never any fee or expense to our clients until we win your case.
Medical negligence cases are extremely technical, medically intensive, high stakes, litigation. Often times cases are in the millions of dollars and malpractice insurance companies will do whatever they can to avoid having to take responsibility to pay the legitimate claim of an injured victim and her family. Robinson and Associates is acutely aware of how the insurance companies and malpractice defense lawyers operate because one of our attorneys was formerly employed by the defense industry. In addition, we have medical professionals (physician and nurse) directly on staff to help accurately and thoroughly evaluate malpractice claims. Finally, several of our litigation partner lawyers are actual physicians themselves. Together these unique experiences and insights allow our entire legal team to provide a level of performance which is unparalleled. The importance of a keen and thorough understanding of both sides of the medical malpractice playing field and the underlying medicine cannot be overstated.
Most malpractice lawyers only know one side of the case, few have had the opportunity and experience to work on the defense side. Our chief counsel served as in-house defense counsel for the world renowned Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. For years, Mr. Stecco assisted in the successful defense of the hospital as well as the doctors and nurses in medical malpractice cases. He has also litigated defense cases for one of Maryland’s largest defense law firms and worked for Maryland’s largest medical malpractice insurance carrier. He now brings that extensive knowledge to each case we accept on behalf of injured victims and their families.
Malpractice insurance companies are a completely different breed. The claims handlers are highly trained and have a thorough knowledge of medicine. They deal with large and catastrophic injuries as a result of malpractice claims every day. They also deal with attorneys trying to obtain settlements on questionable or meritless claims; consequently, the insurance companies are difficult to deal with even with meritorious claims. Remember, often times there are millions of dollars at stake on a given medical injury or death and the insurance company is not in the business of giving money away; they will fight hard to win every claim whether their doctor was negligent in his treatment or not. At Robinson & Associates, our attorneys have a thorough understanding of how they operate. We simply do not take part in their insurance games, their delay and deny tactics. Instead, our attorneys scrupulously research potential cases with the assistance of our board certified physician and nurse and then we file suit on behalf of our clients. No insurance games.
Malpractice cases are complicated and require a specialized knowledge of medicine, what medical resources do you have available?
Our attorneys and litigation partners have spent decades helping victims of medical negligence and personal injury claims. Robinson & Associates has had two different cases resulting in some of the largest verdicts recorded in their respective counties. We have an in-house board certified surgeon on staff and a nurseto review our cases alongside our attorneys in order to provide our clients timely and intelligent feedback on their case. We provide our clients unparalleled malpractice experience and knowledge,in-house medical staff and the resources to successfully pursue and win malpractice cases. Our team of experienced attorneys and medical professionals accepts cases in Maryland and Washington D.C. We also accept cases in other states on a case by case basis.
Many medical malpractice clients switch to Robinson and Associates after starting their case elsewhere, indicating that they never had the opportunity to meet with their attorney or they could not get a return phone call from their lawyer. We do not believe this is the proper way to prepare a malpractice case or to build a strong trust relationship with our clients. It has been my experience dealing with lawyers throughout the years that too many of them do not stay in contact with their clients and that it can be very difficult to get a return call or get simple information regarding the status of a case. At Robinson & Associates that is one of our major priorities. Appropriate and timely status and contact with our clients and quick return calls if we are in court. We recognize there is nothing more frustrating then having a serious issue or question and not being able to get a return call.
When you come in to discuss your case, you will meet with one of our trial lawyers in that meeting. If your case is accepted, you will have a contact phone number and email address and you will know who is responsible for your case; and you will always have somebody that you can speak with. We recognize and understand that a malpractice case is an intensely personal matter with serious ramifications to you and your family; we treat each client with that in mind.
