Very few practicing lawyers have ever tried a case against Bruce Fagel, even fewer have obtained a defense verdict against his client. According to his website and other independent sources, Dr. Fagel has tried and settled more medical malpractice cases than any other attorney in California. When The National Law Journal selected “The 10 Top Trial Attorneys in the Nation,” Dr. Fagel was the only medical malpractice attorney listed in the entire country. Despite a policy limit demand, both the carrier and client agreed to proceed to trial in a case involving catastrophic neurologic injury to a patient in the operating room at the end of surgery. After a six week trial, the jury found in favor of the defendant surgeon.
