Carmody’s Medical Malpractice Defense practice regularly tries difficult, high-exposure cases, and has an impressive track record of over 90 percent of cases resulting in verdicts favorable to the defense.
We have tried hundreds of cases on a wide range of medical issues. In particular, we have successfully defended a variety of major claims brought against Connecticut hospitals and doctors relating to misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis, emergency room negligence, negligent surgeries, and mismanagement of labor and delivery, as well as psychiatric malpractice.
Clients value our ability to develop innovative defense strategies and cost-effective case management. Our goal is to identify at an early stage which cases should be tried through verdict and which cases should be targeted for early resolution through settlement or mediation. This strategy has been successful in resolving cases with probable liability in a cost-effective manner, both in terms of litigation costs and indemnity payout. Additionally, we have successfully utilized bifurcation of liability and damages and high/low agreements to reduce exposure and increase predictability of the outcome.
