What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice is a legal term used to describe injuries caused by medical professionals due to their actions - or inaction. Many of the most common medical malpractice cases we deal with in Worcester at our law firm include:
- Failure to diagnose an illness
- Delay in medical treatment
- Prescribing the wrong medication
- Performing the wrong medical procedure
- Failing to follow standard medical procedures
- Exposing a patient to infection by failing to follow safety protocols
Whatever type of medical malpractice case you're dealing with, don't try to take on hospitals and large medical organizations on your own. Make sure you have an experienced legal team in your corner, standing up for your rights. Make sure you contact us.
Do I Have A Case?
This might sound like a simple question. But knowing whether you have a medical malpractice case in Worcester can be a lot more difficult than you might suspect. You need to be able to prove that a surgeon, doctor or another medical professional failed to meet standards of care, and that their actions (or inaction) caused your injury or illness. Evidence can include:
- Medical records documenting exactly what happened.
- Diagnosis by another doctor verifying your illness or injury.
- Statements from eyewitnesses who saw what happened.
- Inspection records, especially if the hospital or medical facility violated state or federal laws.
Unfortunately, getting such evidence can be a challenge. Hospitals are often uncooperative and doctors may not want to testify against another doctor. The legal process can be complicated as well. All allegations of medical malpractice in Massachusetts must be reviewed by a tribunal, as stated in Massachusetts General Law Part III, Title II, Chapter 231, Section 60B.
Hospitals, medical professionals, insurance companies and attorneys that represent them know what an uphill battle such cases can be for many people in Worcester. That’s why they’re hoping you’ll simply go away and drop your case. They don’t intimidate us.
How We Can Help You
Most medical professionals don't want to admit they did anything wrong. This situation often occurs after an operation. Surgeons, nurses and other medical staff members often claim they did everything they could to treat you or a loved one. They may point fingers at each other to confuse the situation. And if you try to challenge them, they might tell you that you don't understand what you're talking about.
