Results-Focused Representation In Insurance Defense

In today’s litigious society, a strong defense against torts is crucial for any individual, business entity or nonprofit organization.

At the law firm of Low McKinley & Salenko, LLP, we provide comprehensive legal services that yield excellent results. We focus on achieving favorable results, resolving issues quickly and working with an eye toward cost-efficiency.

Our areas of practice include:

  • Medical malpractice defense

The firm represents individual health care professionals and medical groups in defending malpractice claims. In every case, we work closely with medical consultants to evaluate the liability issues and possible defenses. We carefully analyze the pertinent records and diagnostic information to explore a potential causation defense. Our primary objective is to achieve the best possible outcome for the client, and this may involve defending the case through trial as well as a possible appeal.

  • Hospital liability defense

Our attorneys have been regularly defending acute care hospitals in Northern California for 10 years. We have an advanced understanding of hospital organizational structures, including quality improvement and medical staff functions. We have successfully defended hospitals against claims of professional negligence and the corporate negligence doctrine.

  • Long-term care liability defense

The attorneys in our firm have been aggressively defending various long-term care facilities in Northern California against claims for elder abuse, neglect and negligence for over 15 years. Many of these cases have involved allegations of reckless neglect and punitive damages claims. We thoroughly investigate the allegations and retain highly qualified consultants to evaluate the liability aspects of these emotionally charged and often inflammatory cases. We are committed to achieving the best possible result and recommend institutional quality improvement measures when indicated.

  • Consultative practice

We routinely consult with our clients concerning quality improvement measures, development of internal policies and procedures, and risk reduction measures.
