Law Offices of Timothy D. McGonigle Favorably Resolves Suspension of Doctor’s Hospital Privileges
Principal trial attorney Timothy D. McGonigle resolved a case involving the suspension of an obstetrician’s hospital privileges in the doctor’s favor. A hospital summarily suspended the staff privileges of a highly successful and well-loved obstetrician after false allegations were made against her by competitor doctors. The doctor’s privileges were suspended for 18 months while an administrative hearing was conducted that concluded that the summary suspension was unwarranted and unreasonable. During this 18-month period, the doctor suffered significant damages from loss of income and loss of value to her medical practice, and Mr. McGonigle and his co-counsel, George Braunstein, ultimately obtained a reinstatement of the doctor’s hospital privileges and a successful resolution of a civil suit that was brought to recover damages resulting from the reinstatement.
“When Tim and his staff took on my case, they had hurdles created by former counsel to overcome. Even with all that was working against us, Tim and his staff used their considerable gifts and skills to successfully resolve the case.“
