Medical Malpractice

Keyes and Donnellan P.C. is at the forefront of defending physicians, hospitals, nurses and other health care providers in western and central Massachusetts. We have a proven track record of success, and specialize in defending highly complex cases. The key to our success is preparation and thorough analysis, identifying and retaining experts with particular expertise relating to the case, and experienced acumen to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the case. We believe that it is only through meaningful analysis and a thoughtful approach to each case, that the best resolution can be accomplished and that is what you and your insured's deserve. We also appreciate that even the most difficult cases may need to be tried to a jury and, if so, that is what we do best.

The types of medical negligence cases we defend include, although are not limited to: 

  • Failure to diagnose or delay in diagnosis of cancer, heart disease, or other diseases that often start in an initially manner indolent and progress to more overt presentations.
  • Surgical errors, involving claims such as wrong-site surgery, development of intraoperative complications, contraindicated surgery, or lack of informed consent.
  • Errors during childbirth leading to birth trauma, maternal injuries, or other birth related injuries.
  • Errors in causing and/or failing to diagnose or treat injuries in a proper manner of the development of complications resulting from non-surgical treatment including medication toxicity.
  • Errors resulting in wrongful death or deprived loss of chance of survivability.

In addition, we provide services for the evaluation and development of:

  • Expedited analysis of unexpected outcomes and developing a disclosure process for errors that may have impacted results including developing a comprehensive approach to redress through disclosure and apology.
  • Coaching health care providers in appropriately responding to patient outcomes in instances where unexpected results have occurred.
