Medical Malpractice Defense

Medical Malpractice Defense

The attorneys at KLG have defended doctors, nurses, physical therapists, dentists, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and other medical and mental health professionals in malpractice lawsuits in both state and federal court. Along with our own knowledgeable and skilled attorneys, our firm has established a network of highly competent medical and mental health professionals who help us to evaluate medical claims, in order to provide our clients with the highest possible level of representation. This allows us to effectively communicate with all levels of healthcare providers, and to comprehend and litigate complex medical and mental health-related issues.

Our firm has worked with insurance companies to defend healthcare providers in a variety of cases, including cases involving wrongful death, misdiagnosis, surgical errors, mistakes in prescribing or administering medication, delay in care and treatment, and various other negligence claims.

We understand the importance of preparing reports for insurance companies and third party administrators, enabling claims representatives and case managers to perform their duties. We work closely with claims representatives and case managers to anticipate and develop realistic budgets, and we always keep them informed of the status of a claim.

Medical and mental health 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 of patients, which are not always realistic and/or do not always take the realities of human error into account. This can lead to malpractice lawsuits, which have the potential to threaten the professional career of all those involved. Consequently, in addition to seeking to provide the professional with the best possible representation, we also are very responsive to his/her inquiries regarding the lawsuit, and do our best to calm the professional about the lawsuit so that he/she can focus on caring for his/her patients while we work towards a favorable resolution of the lawsuit.

“Koufman Law Group, LLC retained me as an expert in a medical case. They effectively and thoroughly prepared for trial by, for instance, developing a good working knowledge of the content of my testimony. They also helped me determine the best manner by which I presented my expert testimony, and at trial, they were relaxed but very effective before the jury. “ Peter M.
