When people visit a doctor or check into a hospital for a surgical procedure, they expect to receive care that meets basic standards. When a loved one is in a nursing home or assisted living facility, the family assumes that he or she is being treated well. When this is not the case, the consequences can be dire. Our attorneys are here to help you in the event of medical malpractice.
We represent individuals injured due to surgical mistakes, incorrect diagnoses, medication errors, infections, improperly performed chiropractic manipulations, inadequate care at nursing homes, and other negligent acts of physicians and nurses. Our attorneys advise and counsel individuals and their families whose cases arise from all forms of medical negligence.
Our legal team works with medical experts and legal specialists to pursue hospitals, nursing homes and medical care providers who were negligent and provided treatment that failed to meet the accepted standards of care.
Types of Issues
Medical Malpractice in Massachusetts
Our law firm works to obtain compensation to people who have been injured, and the families of those lost as a result of medical malpractice. These issues can come as a result of surgical mistakes, incorrect diagnoses, anesthesia mistakes, defective medical equipment, general inadequate care and more. We also handle cases where nursing home or residential facility neglect and abuse occurs, and prescription medication or pharmacy errors.
Can mistakes at the pharmacy fall under the medical malpractice category of personal injury cases?
Yes. We have seen situations where pharmacists incorrectly filled the medication prescribed by the patient’s doctor and the patient was seriously injured as a result of this negligence. We have also seen situations where pharmacists failed to warn of a drug’s possible side effect and the patient became very ill because they were not properly informed.
