Medical Litigation

Martin Merritt has been defending physicians in medical litigation for over 25 years. Whether the claim is a direct malpractice action, or the physician is joined in a pharmaceutical products liability case, Martin Merritt has successfully defended physicians in hundreds of millions of dollars in claims against some of Texas’ leading plaintiffs law firms. 

Successful cases include defense of over a dozen physician cases in Multi-District Class action “opt out” phen fen cases in MDL Number 1201 in Philadelphia. Martin Merritt’s clients were dismissed on summary judgment on the grounds that the Plaintiff’s lawyers failed to file suit, or obtain a tolling agreement of the statute of limitations.  Because the statute of limitations had run, the court ruled the physicians were fraudulently joined to defeat diversity jurisdiction.

Martin also represents may prominent businesses in commercial litigation, contract disputes, real estate and other litigation matters.           

Each case turns on the facts and issues involved. Success in past cases does not guarantee success in future cases.
