When medical procedures don’t go as planned, medical professionals can become the target of aggressive litigation, often with high financial and career stakes.

Rendigs negligence attorneys have experience defending all types of healthcare clients – including physicians, nurses, hospitals, chiropractors, nursing homes, and allied health professionals – against malpractice claims and lawsuits. We represent clients in jury trials, mediation, medical review panel proceedings, arbitration, and bench trials in state and federal court. Many cases can be most effectively and economically resolved out of court, but when it best serves our client’s interests, our trial attorneys are ready and able to take a case all the way to the jury.

More often than not, medical malpractice claims involve complex medical issues, procedures, and terms. Our negligence attorneys’ servicing clients in Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, Lexington, and Louisville  are comfortable with these specialized subjects. We also employ our own legal nurse consultants, and retain top medical specialists from the most prestigious medical centers and universities to consult and testify on behalf of our clients. These experts include orthopedists, neurologists, cardiologists, obstetricians and gynecologists, pediatricians, surgeons, nurses, and a myriad of other healthcare professionals.
