Don Keenan was chosen by the National Law Journal in April of 1997 as one of the top three medical malpractice attorneys in the country. As noted in that publication:
“Mr. Keenan has served as a medical malpractice attorney and has tried medical malpractice cases in 14 states and tried or settled over 40 obstetrical, neonatal, and pediatric cases for over $1,000,000 dollars. Most noted for his innovative trial techniques, he is reportedly the first trial lawyer to use focus groups and computer generated medical illustration exhibits in medical malpractice cases.”
A mistake by a healthcare professional, a doctor or nurse, dentist, technician, hospital worker, or hospital which causes injury or death is commonly referred to as a medical malpractice or medical negligence claim.
What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice and negligence cases are time consuming and expensive to litigate. It is important to realize that not all unfortunate medical situations are actually the result of medical negligence. Further, not all medical mistakes cause injury. Therefore, a high percentage of cases that come under the review of a medical malpractice attorney by the Keenan Law Firm are deemed to be non-meritorious.
The firm may work many hours and can invest considerable funds into a potential case, only to find after investigation that it is non-meritorious.
In this instance, the client owes the firm nothing.
As an experienced medical malpractice attorney, Mr. Keenan has lectured on issues of medical negligence throughout the United States, and in Europe and Australia. He has instructed and given presentations on medical malpractice at medical schools and national medical meetings.
