Medical Malpractice Defense

Gjording Fouser’s medical malpractice team is “the most highly acclaimed medical malpractice defense team in our region” according to one client interviewed by the national legal directory, Benchmark Litigation.  Another national legal directory, Chambers USA, ranks our firm in the highest category possible, band 1, in the Idaho Litigation: Medical Malpractice & Insurance Defense section where a client reported, “Gjording Fouser is one of the best I deal with.”  U.S. News-Best Lawyers also ranks our firm in the highest category possible, tier 1, in the medical malpractice law-defendants category. U.S. News-Best Lawyers also ranked partner Trudy Hanson Fouser as the Medical Malpractice “Lawyer of the Year” in Boise in 2021.

Our firm has represented hospitals, long-term care facilities, physicians and other medical professionals facing medical malpractice allegations in medical review panel proceedings, mediations, and jury trials for more than 30 years. We defend medical professionals in almost every area of practice – from nurses, physical therapists, pharmacists and family practice physicians to neurosurgeons – in cases involving failure to diagnose, delayed diagnosis, medication errors, complications during surgical procedures, post-operative complications, retained objects, birth injuries and wrongful death.

Due to our vast medical malpractice defense experience, we have access to a network of elite medical experts who assist us with challenging medical malpractice claims and in presenting compelling cases for our clients.  We know medical malpractice law in Idaho and provide specific guidance regarding peer review protected materials and the detailed requirements surrounding expert disclosures. Another unique feature about our medical malpractice team is that it includes appellate counsel who collaborates with trial counsel to address complex or novel issues that arise at the trial level.

Our attorneys also routinely consult with clients on risk management issues and pre-litigation matters, providing practical tips from the cases we have defended.
