Our Medical Expertise Makes the Difference
From years of hands-on experience in personal injury and medical malpractice litigation, our lawyers are fluent in the technical medical terminology on which compensation may hinge, as well as the legal and insurance issues. Dempsey & Kingsland also has an exclusive relationship with two medical professionals who are intimately involved in virtually every client’s case:
- Jane O’Shaughnessy, M.D., is a board-certified physician who has served as physician consultant to our firm since 1999. Her sterling credentials include 17 years as the former chair of emergency medicine at a major New York hospital. Dr. O’Shaughnessy evaluates our accident cases to identify the key medical aspects we address in a claim for compensation.
- Cathy L. Brown, RN, BSN, has conducted medical research for Dempsey and Kingsland as our nurse consultant since 2003. Her distinguished career in nursing spans more than 35 years in pediatrics, neonatology, cardiology and surgery, including working with cardiac surgery pioneer Michael DeBakey. Her insights and bedside manner are invaluable when working with clients to determine their future needs.
Our firm has also cultivated a nationwide network of top professionals in many fields, including accident reconstructionists, medical specialists, life care planners and economists. These experts help us convince insurance companies or juries of liability, and add value to our clients’ claims by illustrating all the tangible ways that a serious injury impacts their life.
