Speaker Bio
Noelle Sheehan focuses her practice on complex civil litigation matters from outset to conclusion in state and federal courts across Florida and in Washington, D.C. and Boston, Massachusetts. Her cases involve insurance and general liability defense of matters including personal injury, premises liability, product liability, wrongful death, automobile/trucking liability, negligent security, contract disputes, indemnification disputes, Americans with Disabilities Act compliance, nursing home negligence and medical malpractice.

Long-Term Care Facilities and Nursing Homes
Noelle represents owners and operators of long-term care facilities, assisted-living facilities and nursing homes throughout Florida in lawsuits involving allegations of medical negligence, corporate negligence, administrative negligence, inadequate staffing, wrongful death and statutory violations of residents’ rights. She has developed successful strategies to position these cases substantively and procedurally for the best possible resolution. Noelle is knowledgeable in state and federal regulations regarding long-term care facilities. Nursing home litigation, fueled by the relative absence of caps and the awarding of outsized punitive damages, has increased dramatically over the past few years. Intimately familiar with related state and federal regulations, Noelle defends nursing home malpractice claims through all phases of litigation. She also implements carefully crafted strategies that are designed to limit or avoid punitive damages available to plaintiffs under statute.

Medical Malpractice
Noelle focuses on the defense of physicians and hospitals in medical malpractice cases arising in all areas of medical specialty. Her knowledge in defending medical malpractice claims coupled with the firm’s heritage and continued strength in insurance defense attracts a growing clientele. To mount more effective defenses, Noelle consults medical experts from several of the nation’s most respected institutions, including surgeons and professors from leading teaching hospitals and authorities from the National Institutes of Health. She knows that the best way to counter medical malpractice lawsuits is to prevent their occurrence. She recognizes when medical practice and facility operations can be modified to reduce the risk of professional liability claims, and consults in those areas.
