Fighting For Boston Families For More Than A Decade

Kimberly K. Ridge

Attorney Ridge has a wealth of experience in personal injury and medical malpractice. In fact, she began her career as a labor and delivery nurse at a local hospital — where she worked for nearly a decade caring for patients in all phases of pregnancy, labor, delivery, and post-partum.

Her career in and around medicine didn’t end there. Attorney Ridge obtained her law degree from New England Law School and went on to work at a medical malpractice firm in Boston. During this time, she specialized in malpractice claims involving injured mothers and babies.

After this, Attorney Ridge worked as a risk manager for a medical center in Boston. She has developed considerable knowledge of the inner workings of hospitals and medical centers — as a staff member, lawyer, and administrator. She has even helped government agencies (DPH, CMS) investigate adverse events at hospitals. She also has experience investigating and reporting adverse events to the Department of Public Health

Attorney Ridge now uses her matchless experience in medical malpractice to help patients that have been injured by medical errors. She is a relentless advocate and pursues every cent to which her clients are entitled. Attorney Ridge’s success has not gone unnoticed — she was recognized as a Super Lawyers’ Rising Star for the year 2021.

Attorney Ridge believes that her work in medical malpractice will improve the lives of her clients and make hospitals safer for individuals and families in Massachusetts.
