Insurance Defense Lawyers from Boston, Salem & Brookline

Koufman & Frederick, LLP has been and continues to be retained as defense counsel by major insurance companies and self-insured companies for claims filed in federal and state courts in Massachusetts.  Our attorneys, therefore, have significant experience working with insurance companies and third party administrators (TPAs) to achieve favorable results. We have engaged in insurance defense in diverse areas including medical malpractice, wrongful death, civil rights, product liability, and slip and falls.

Our attorneys fully understand the importance of preparing reports to insurance companies and TPAs that enable claims representatives and managers to perform their vital functions. We always work with claims representatives and administrators to anticipate and develop realistic budgets, while developing strategies within these budgets to achieve positive outcomes. At all times, we keep the claims representatives and administrators fully informed of the status of a claim, and work closely with insureds to achieve a favorable result and to ensure the insured's are confident they are receiving good representation.

A number of national insurance carriers retain Koufman & Frederick to defend their insureds. Some of our past and present clients include: C.N.A. HealthPro; ProMutual; URLI; and, Chartis Insurance. We have worked with many TPAs such as TPAs from Western Litigation and Sedwick Claims Management Services. Some of the self-insured companies or institutions which we have represented and for which we have represented their employees and agents include, but are not limited to: EMSA Correctional Care; Excel Homes, LLC; DeIulis Construction Company; Merrimac Valley Hospital; and, UMass Memorial Health Care, Inc.

We have established a network of highly competent physicians, and nurses and other medical personnel who are available to us to evaluate medical issues in insurance defense matters. This allows us to effectively communicate with all levels of healthcare providers, and to comprehend and litigate complex medical and health-related issues.

We appear regularly in the Commonwealth's Superior and District Courts, and in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts. Our attorneys have successfully presented cases to judges and juries on behalf of many individuals and corporations. The ability to handle trial and appellate matters is essential, yet most litigated matters are settled before trial. Our firm's size allows for swift case analysis to determine the likelihood of a trial. State-of-the-art computer litigation resources, and the utilization of talented paralegals keep legal fees affordable.
