How do doctors try to avoid medical malpractice

All medical professionals are human. They become tired, frustrated, and even angry, sometimes while on the job. Although these feelings are understandable, it is wholly unacceptable when they interfere with an individual's medical care. All too often, fatigued, inattentive, and reckless doctors and nurses fail to live up to the standard of care they owe to their patients, resulting in serious harm and death. When this happens, a medical malpractice lawsuit can be filed in hopes of recovering compensation for damages such as lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.

Workers' compensation and the "going and coming" rule

Massachusetts residents who have been hurt at work may qualify for workers' compensation benefits. These benefits can help these injured workers pay their medical expenses and recoup their lost wages while they focus on recovering their health and getting back to work. Although an individual does not have to show fault in order to recover workers' compensation benefits, employers and insurance companies will often try to deny an injured worker's claim.

How can discovery help my workers' compensation claim?

If you've been injured on the job, then you know the struggle that can accompany one's recovery. The physical pain can be excruciating, and you might find yourself depressed when you are unable to work. On top of that, you will likely incur medical expenses and suffer from lost wages, which can throw your finances into a tailspin. To avoid this, you may want to consider seeking workers' compensation benefits.

Dog bites cause much more than physical damage. Who is liable?

Has a dog attacked you or your child? The financial, physical and psychological consequences can be devastating. While many victims of dog bites in Massachusetts accept insurance settlement offers, coverage that is more comprehensive might be available through the civil court. In Massachusetts, a strict liability law exists, which means the dog owner is liable even if he or she claims not to have known that the dog was dangerous.
