Medical Malpractice Lawsuits
If a medical professional is negligent in his or her duty to provide a reasonable standard of care, we believe that person should be held fully accountable for any injuries they cause. Medical malpractice lawsuits can be brought against doctors, nurses, pharmacists, other medical personnel, or even hospitals. The most common grounds on which our medical malpractice lawyers can build a claim are:
- Failure to Diagnose
- Improper or Incorrect Diagnosis
- Surgical Errors
- Medication Errors
- Anesthesia Errors
- Birth Injury
- Child Delivery
- Burn Therapy
- Defective Drugs or Medical Devices/Products
- Improper Procedure
- Nursing Home Abuse
To determine whether a medical error has been made, victims need the support of an experienced medical malpractice lawyer who can review all circumstances surrounding treatment. It is important to note that all medical malpractice claims are limited by a statute of limitations, which means that victims only have a certain amount of time to file a claim. If you believe you have been the victim of medical malpractice in Massachusetts, contact our lawyers today to schedule your free legal evaluation.
Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Damages
According to the National Academy of Sciences, roughly 98,000 Americans die as a result of medical errors each year. When medical malpractice can be proven, victims are entitled to compensation for their injuries or for the loss of their loved one. There are two types of compensation available in a medical malpractice claim:
Actual damages: this is compensation that can help victims with the cost of treatment or account for their pain and suffering, loss of current and future wages, and other actual costs that resulted from the medical negligence.
Punitive damages: this refers to monies awarded to compensate victims for reckless or willful negligent behavior on the part of a medical professional.
