Medical Malpractice Defense

Medical Negligence Defense Attorneys from Boston, Salem & Brookline

Medical professionals have the lives of others in their hands on a daily basis. Along with this responsibility, comes the stress of meeting extremely high expectations that do not always take the realities of human error into account. This can lead to malpractice lawsuits that can threaten a medical professional's career.

The attorneys at Koufman & Frederick, LLP assist doctors, nurses, physical therapists and other medical professionals in malpractice suits. We help insurance companies to defend insureds in cases involving wrongful death, misdiagnosis, surgical errors, delaying diagnosis and cases resulting from instruments left in the body.

Massachusetts Lawyers Defending Professionals in Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

In some instances, patients blame a medical professional instead of taking responsibility for their own negligent actions. For this reason, there are a variety of common defenses to medical malpractice claims, including:

  • The patient caused much of his or her own harm due to personal negligence
  • The patient assumed the risk of any complication by giving informed consent to a procedure or action
  • The alleged harm or damage was considered a known risk and occurred without any negligence involved
  • The patient failed to disclose important information to the medical professional
  • The alleged negligence had no effect on the patient's prognosis or condition
