Morrison Mahoney has been involved in the defense of a wide range of pharmaceutical and medical device products with claims ranging from soft tissue damage and amputation to wrongful death and serious brain trauma.

Our extensive medical malpractice knowledge combined with our products liability expertise has uniquely positioned us to understand the complexities and issues involved in the defense of life science claims. Our teams make use of our nurse paralegals and partners to effectively focus on medical records and medical issues together with our experienced litigation counsel.
