ABOUT US




MEDICAL MALPRACTICE
Since its beginning in 1982, Amabile & Erman, P.C. has specialized in the area of medical malpractice
defense. We represent hospitals and physicians in negligence and wrongful death cases on behalf of the
largest insurance carriers in the tri-state area.

In addition to defending physicians, we also represent dentists, nurses, paramedics, podiatrists,
pathologists, social workers and other members of the allied health professions. Our representation
extends to managed care organizations and privately run emergency rooms.

Our firm's attorneys have developed knowledge in a wide variety of medical fields, including obstetrics,
orthopedics, surgery and oncology, to name just a few. This depth of knowledge, coupled with the
firm's reputation for excellence in client defense, has attracted a client roster that includes nationally
renowned physicians and premier teaching hospitals.


GENERAL LIABILITY
Our attorneys handle a wide range of general liability matters, including claims involving construction
defects, premises liability, property damage, fire loss, liquor liability/dram shop actions, civil actions
arising out of the criminal conduct of third persons, defamation/libel and mass tort actions. We
represent a variety of self-insured entities as well as insurance carriers in defending such actions.

It is our belief that in order to provide the most cost-efficient service to our clients, cases are evaluated at
an early stage so that efforts can be made to identify those cases that, in all likelihood, will eventually
settle. Resources can then be directed to those cases which have been deemed to be appropriate for trial.

We pride ourselves on the extensive trial skills of the attorneys in this practice group, all of whom have
had experience in handling a variety of high-exposure cases in front of juries in a number of jurisdictions.
Regardless of the complexity of the matter, our continuing goal is to ensure that our clients are fully
informed of the status of all litigation so that the most effective strategic decisions can be made at
each stage.
