KBR has extensive experience in the defense of hospitals, physicians, podiatrists, dentists, chiropractors, psychologists, nurses, therapists, home healthcare attendants, paraprofessionals and other healthcare providers. KBR’s Medical Malpractice Defense Team has decades of litigation experience and includes many well-respected trial attorneys. Our list of esteemed clients includes some of the largest and most prestigious hospitals in the metropolitan area. We serve on the defense panel for the major malpractice insurance carriers. We aggressively defend our clients against numerous claims of medical malpractice involving serious injuries and death, many of which have the potential for multi-million dollar exposure.

KBR’s focus is to aggressively defend all cases during litigation by focusing on discovery and preparing cases for trial, while also pursuing opportunities to obtain early dismissals with timely motion practice. Our defense team includes a group of experienced nurse consultants who utilize their clinical nursing experience in a vital supporting role to the attorneys in defending the firm’s clients. We recognize the importance of keeping our clients well-informed through timely and accurate reporting. Since many of our attorneys have insurance coverage litigation experience as well, we identify cases that may require early resolution through settlement, arbitration or mediation. Our attorneys have successfully represented clients in many alternative dispute resolution proceedings.

In addition to our litigation services, the KBR malpractice defense attorneys are integrally involved in educating our clients and professional colleagues by keeping them up to date on changes in the law and strategies for effective risk management. KBR’s attorneys have authored many articles for numerous journals, periodicals and textbooks. We also lecture throughout the country on various topics involving malpractice litigation, health law and risk management.

We welcome the opportunity to further discuss the services offered by our firm and would be pleased to provide samples of our litigation results and publications.
