PRA Welcomes Dr. Douglas S. Grossbart, Esquire to the Firm's Nursing Home/Medical Malpractice Groups

Pellettieri Rabstein & Altman welcomes Douglas S. Grossbart, M.D., Esq. to the firm’s Nursing Home/Medical Malpractice team. 

Dr. Grossbart is a physician-attorney specializing in nursing home negligence, medical malpractice, and other complex personal injury matters.  A 1988 summa cum laude graduate of Seton Hall University and a 1993 graduate of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, he completed his medical training internship in Pennsylvania before attending law school. He has handled medical malpractice, nursing malpractice, and hospital malpractice as well as nursing home abuse and malpractice matters spanning numerous specialties, including obstetrics, gynecology, oncology (cancer), anesthesiology, radiology, cardiology, as well as surgery and surgical subspecialties, such as neurosurgery and orthopedic surgery.

“I was attracted to Pellettieri Rabstein and Altman because I have known of the firm for years and respect their successful role in a number of court decision as well as its strong reputation of excellence,” says Dr. Grossbart. “I believe my medical and legal background will be of significant benefit to the firm’s clients.  It provides me unique insight when I take depositions or conduct cross examination, especially those of doctors, nurses and medical experts.  My ability to work with medical experts on behalf of the firm’s clients, allows me to speak ‘the lingo’ which other attorneys simply do not.”

Nursing Home/Medical malpractice lawyers level the playing field between the client and the insurance companies defending the doctor. They gather the facts and medical records for review by medical experts who are then able to determine what happened, what can be proven, and what was done.

Says Dr. Grossbart, “I hope to play a key role in protecting the interests of our clients and to remedy some of the injustices that unfortunately occur every day.  I treat each client with concern and carefully review all relevant medical information.  I combine it with a deep insight into the law.  Attention to detail includes family members and other relatives who often are also substantially affected by the negligent acts of others.”

Pellettieri Rabstein and Altman’s investigates whether the care provided loved ones fell below the recognized and accepted standards of practice, defining mistakes that should never be made under the circumstances.  

The firm gets you the best possible results, through negotiation, and when necessary, litigation.
