What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice is a legal term used to describe mistakes made (whether intentional or accidental) by medical professionals that results in severe injuries to patients. The most common examples of medical malpractice we deal with in our Boston office include:
- Misdiagnosis by doctor
- Prescribing wrong medication
- Anesthesia error
- Performing wrong medical procedure
- Failure to follow standard medical procedures
- Unnecessary surgery
- Injuries sustained by newborn children during delivery (including cerebral palsy)
- Unnecessary delay in treatment
In addition, manufacturers of medical devices are also often accused of medical malpractice, especially if they rushed a product to market without conducting adequate safety testing. That's why it's critical that you contact the Law Offices of Mark E. Salomone to discuss the details of your case.
“Why are Boston medical malpractice cases complicated?”
Building a successful medical malpractice case in Boston takes a lot of work. You need evidence that a medical professional’s actions (or inaction) directly caused your injury or illness. Such evidence can include:
- Medical records documenting what went wrong.
- Statements from medical professionals or eyewitnesses who saw what happened.
- Hospital inspection records, especially if you or a loved one sustained an infection (including sepsis) due to unsanitary conditions.
Obtaining such evidence can be challenging. Hospitals are reluctant to provide this evidence, and doctors are often reluctant to testify against a colleague. There’s also a formal process for dealing with medical malpractice allegations in Massachusetts.
Specifically, all medical malpractice cases must first be reviewed by a tribunal, which includes a superior court judge, licensed physician, and an attorney licensed to practice law in the state, according to Massachusetts General Law Part III, Title II, Chapter 231, Section 60B.
Don’t try to tackle your Boston medical malpractice case on your own. Make sure you have an experienced attorney on your side who knows how the legal system works in Suffolk County when it comes to such complicated injury claims or lawsuits.
