MEDICAL MALPRACTICE DEFENSE

We Defend Medical Professionals Facing Malpractice Claims in Massachusetts, Maine, and Rhode Island

There are risks involving nearly all aspects of medical care and treatment. Whether it is diagnosing a condition, prescribing medication, delivering a baby, or performing surgery, each step of treating a patient involves some level of risk. Many of these risks are shared by both the patient and the practitioner, particularly in high-risk or emergency situations. But since every decision comes down to a healthcare provider’s training, education, and experience, it is often the medical professional that carries an additional risk in treating a patient—the risk of a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Protecting Your License, Your Reputation, and Your Family

At McCarthy Bouley Barry + Morgan, we know how to manage these risks for healthcare professionals facing a challenge to their livelihood. We provide experienced and aggressive advocacy for healthcare providers, hospitals, practice groups, both academic and tertiary care facilities, and other community practices in Massachusetts, Maine, and Rhode Island. We try multiple cases each year to verdict in jury trials in Superior Court or by way of arbitration. When in the best interests of our clients, we will also engage in mediations if we believe a fair and just outcome could result.

Our law offices have represented health care providers and facilities insured by the major captive programs and insurance companies in the Northeast, and we have done so with distinction in Super Lawyers every year since 2003 as well as being named among Boston Magazine’s top attorneys in Massachusetts, listed on New England Super Lawyers, Best Lawyers in America, and US News’ Best Lawyers and Best Law Firms.
