Sean P. Carroll

Senior Attorney

Sean is a member of the firm’s Health Care and Medical Malpractice Group. He defends health care providers involved in litigation and advocates for medical professionals before the Boards of Professional Licensure. He frequently appears in State and Federal Courts across the Commonwealth and has applied experience defending and advocating for physicians, advanced practice providers and nurses involved in medical malpractice litigation. For example, Sean recently represented a Physician Assistant (PA) in a complex trial concerning allegations of wrongful death and negligent care and treatment of a post-operative patient following an elective cervical spine surgery. The 3-week trial involved the testimony of six expert witnesses, twelve medical providers and concluded with a jury verdict finding in favor of the defendants.

Sean regularly appears for professional licensing matters and administrative hearings on behalf of his clients and routinely obtains favorable results before the various licensing boards, including the Board of Registration in Medicine (BORIM), Board of Registration in Dentistry (BORID) and the Board of Registration in Nursing (BORIN). He also concentrates his practice on the representation and advocacy of Nurses, CRNA’s and Nurse Practitioners involved with the Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Program (SARP), a voluntary 3-5 year Alternative-to-Discipline program implemented through the BORIN. He frequently appears and advocates for clients before disciplinary hearings, Executive Session meetings related to SARP participation and CASP compliance as well as administrative matters before the Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Evaluation Committee (SAREC).

Prior to joining HMDR&S, Sean served as a legal intern for Steward Health Care where he was involved with legal advocacy related to community health, ethics and health care reform. He also gained valuable experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants in a broad spectrum of civil litigation, employment and insurance matters.

While away from the office, Sean is an ardent baseball fan and enjoys spending time with his wife and three children.
