Standing Up For Victims Of Professional Malpractice

We trust licensed professionals with our health, our money, even our lives. When that trust is breached, it can result in significant loss and hardship.

At the Law Offices of Kenneth V. Kurnos, P.C., we stand up for people who have suffered catastrophic injuries due to medical malpractice and legal malpractice throughout Massachusetts. Our malpractice litigation attorneys are here to help you explore your options and guide you through the legal process.

Medical Malpractice Claims

Not all adverse (bad) outcomes in a medical setting rise to the level of malpractice, even when they are the result of mistakes. Generally speaking, for medical malpractice to occur, the care provided must fall below an accepted professional standard, and the patient must suffer damages as a result.

Medical malpractice takes many forms, including:

  • Surgical errors
  • Hospital errors
  • Misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis
  • Medication errors
  • Failure to monitor
  • Untreated infections
  • Birth injuries

We have represented clients who have suffered catastrophic injuries and severe injuries due to negligence on the part of doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pharmacists or other medical professionals.

These cases are generally won by experts and are costly to produce.

Legal Malpractice Claims

Attorneys also owe a certain standard of care to their clients. When this standard is not met, it can result in significant financial losses, missed opportunities and costly liabilities.

Legal malpractice also takes many forms. Common examples include:

  • Missing a statute of limitations due to attorney carelessness
  • Failure to conduct due diligence
  • Failure to consider tax consequences
  • Misappropriation of client funds

In both medical and legal negligence claims, a bad outcome in and of itself is not evidence of malpractice. To understand if your claim is actionable and whether we can help, talk to an attorney with experience in this unique area of law.

Case within a Case

Generally, you must prove not only that an attorney committed malpractice, but also that, absent such malpractice, you would have prevailed at trial.
