About David

David Adams primarily represents healthcare providers-including hospitals, staffing groups, physicians, mid-level providers, CRNAs, licensed professional counselors, and others in defending medical malpractice and professional liability claims, both before medical review panels and in subsequent litigation. He represents businesses, insurers, and insureds in defending a wide range of casualty and personal injury claims, as well as analyzing and advising as to insurance coverage issues. He also represents and advises emerging businesses in connection with drafting, negotiation, and performance of various contracts, regulatory compliance, and general business advice.

 

David has obtained favorable results before a wide range of medical review panels, in district courts, and in courts of appeal. He was once highly proficient in Latin and moderately proficient in Ancient Greek and Spanish.

Willie Evans v. Tarun Jolly, M.D. David succeeded in reversing a default judgment rendered against the defendant physician and subsequently obtained summary judgment dismissing the action.

 

Aimee Lasseigne v. East Jefferson General Hospital et al. David obtained a trial court ruling dismissing all claims against multiple physicians as untimely. When the plaintiff sought to appeal the dismissal, David succeeded in obtaining dismissal of the appeal as well.

 

Donna Simmons et vir v. Van Meter Emergency Physicians, APMC. David obtained summary judgment dismissing a hospital-employed nurse’s lawsuit against an ER staffing group arising from an assault on the nurse by a patient who had been admitted through the ER.
