Jerry I. Meyers
Jerry Meyers, the firm’s founder, brings nearly 40 years of experience in medical malpractice litigation to the table. A former navy hospital corpsman and respiratory therapist, Jerry has devoted his entire career to representing people injured by medical negligence. After working in hospitals and seeing patients suffer needless injury, he felt an intense drive to make a difference in the medical field.
He has been recognized as one of the top 100 lawyers in Pennsylvania by The American Trial Lawyers Association and, based upon the independent research of Washington Law & Politics, recognized as a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer in the field of medical malpractice. Meyers has been responsible for investing in a number of measures that differentiate Meyers Evans Lupetin & Unatin from many other law firms, such as establishing one of the most extensive medical libraries privately owned by a law firm. The library contains not only the leading current authoritative medical texts and clinics but prior editions of such texts so that the standard of practice at the time the malpractice occurred can be established.
Chuck Evans has over 40 years of broad-based civil trial experience and commitment to the rights of injured people. He is well known for representing victims of wrongful conduct in virtually every area of personal injury practice. Chuck has been named in the prestigious national publication “Best Lawyers in America” for the handling of personal injury cases since 1993.
Greg Unatin is dedicated to representing people injured as a result of medical malpractice, avoidable medical errors, unsafe products, and negligence. He has been practicing law in Pennsylvania since 2006. Greg is a member of the American, Pennsylvania, and Allegheny County Bar Associations, Association of Trial Lawyers of America, Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Association, and the Western Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Association.
Brendan Lupetin focuses his practice on protecting the rights of those injured by medical malpractice. He was admitted to practice before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and the District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania in 2006.
Representation of individuals victimized by defective medical products, motor vehicle negligence and food-borne illnesses are just a few of our team’s other areas of practice. Our lawyers also have a wealth of experience litigating numerous birth injury, cerebral palsy, brain damage and wrongful death cases.
On-Staff Medical Practitioners
One of the most important aspects of our firm’s operation is the initial client contact and screening of all potential injury cases. It is common that most people when faced with investigating a catastrophic medical malpractice or wrongful death claim end up talking to secretaries or paralegals that really do not possess medical knowledge or insights; hence they typically do not know what questions to ask.
At the law offices of Meyers Evans Lupetin & Unatin, it is our medical staff that leads the way in determining where the possible medical negligence occurred.
Each potential client speaks to one of our on-staff nurses, all of whom have had critical care experience, are well-educated; all are still working as nurses in addition to working here part-time so as to maintain their acuity with reference to current standards of practice.
The firm’s attorneys, in-house medical staff, paralegals and support personnel understand the seriousness of each and every potential claim we review. Our attorneys take every case seriously and on an individual basis, carefully considering the unique circumstances of each case.
The Meyers Medical Library
At Meyers Evans Lupetin & Unatin, we believe one of our firm’s most valuable resources is our extensive medical library. We maintain our medical library because it is an essential tool for our attorneys, medical staff and legal support staff to establish the medical standard of practice current to the time the care was provided.
