Woman files lawsuit after doctors fail to diagnose cancer


Receiving proper and adequate medical treatment is dependent upon many factors. Doctors must conduct thorough examinations, consult a patient's personal and familial medical history, and accurately diagnose a patient's condition. When a doctor fails in any of these areas, serious injuries or death may result. Massachusetts residents who are harmed by a doctor error should act on their legal rights.

Failure to diagnose number one reason for negligence lawsuits


Though certain medical conditions may make many Massachusetts residents fearful, the fact that experienced, educated doctors populate our cities and towns should put them at ease. Unfortunately, all too often doctors make mistakes that can cause serious personal injury or death. A new report shows where doctors are falling short, and how devastating it can be for patients.

Jury finds doctor's negligence led to man's stroke


Massachusetts residents go to the hospital with the expectation of being properly treated. In order to obtain this effective care, a doctor must first accurately diagnose the condition from which the patient is suffering, and then check up on that diagnosis. If there is a doctor error in making the diagnosis or in following up with the condition, the result can be tragic. A recent jury verdict in a medical malpractice case shows just how damaging these mistakes can be for patients.

Poll reveals misdiagnosis common in Mass. patients
