Head-on collision leaves four injured in Massachusetts


This blog often discusses car accidents and just how devastating they can be for an individual and his or her family. Perhaps one of the most frightening aspects of a car wreck is that it often comes out of nowhere. A drunk, distracted, or otherwise negligent driver can make a mistake which, in the blink of an eye, can forever change the course of an individual's life. Sadly, one of these accidents occurred recently on a Massachusetts roadway.

Can I file a medical malpractice claim even if I gave consent?


Yes, depending on the circumstances. The law requires medical professionals to educate you about your medical condition, available treatment options, and the risks associated with each course of action. This information must be provided in a way that is easy to understand so that you can be educated enough to make an informed decision about your medical treatment. Then, when you choose a course of action, you are deemed to have given "informed consent."

We competently and passionately handle medical malpractice cases


In our previous post we discussed an instance of medical malpractice that left a woman dead. While that was a truly sad event, Massachusetts residents may be even more heartbroken to hear that these instances are far from uncommon. And if you are injured by or lose a loved one to medical negligence, you are likely dealing with a complex set of emotions that include sadness and anger.

Doctor admits error, but hospital denies medical malpractice


When Massachusetts residents are hurt by their doctor or a nurse, they usually at least want an apology. While one might think that an apology is an admission of guilt, the medical professional's employer, the hospital, might think otherwise.

The types of damages a car accident victim can recover


Massachusetts residents who have been hurt in a car accident know that it can drastically change their lives. They may be left physically disabled, unable to work and emotionally traumatized. They might also incur significant financial losses by losing wages and racking up medical bills. Once a crash victim has the time to focus on his or her legal case he or she might wonder for what damages he or she can recover compensation. Hopefully this article will help shed light on the matter.

How does comparative negligence affect Massachusetts' victims?


Unfortunately, many Massachusetts residents will find themselves in a car accident at some point in their lives. When this happens, their first reaction must be to determine if they, their passengers, and other parties are OK. After that, they might wonder who was at fault. Determining fault is an important step in the quest to recover compensation for one's damages. Yet, there may be some confusion as to how fault is calculated and how it affects a victim's chances of recovery.

Retained sponge results in harm and medical malpractice lawsuit


Massachusetts' residents who elect to have a surgical operation hope that certain steps are properly followed. They want incisions made in the right order, the right body part operated on, and the operation itself to be successful in remedying their problem. However, there are other, seemingly minor, steps that must be taken during a surgical procedure, and failing to do so properly can result in significant harm to a patient.

Massachusetts runner killed in tragic car accident


Nowadays many Massachusetts take to the outdoors to enjoy the sun, warmth, and scents of spring. Though several of these individuals run, walk, or ride a bike on or near the roadways motorists owe them a duty of care to keep them safe from harm. This not only means refraining from acting negligently in ways such as speeding, driving while intoxicated, or driving while texting, but also taking certain actions, like yielding the right of way, that ensure pedestrian safety.

Wrong kidney removed in surgery, medical malpractice suit filed


Those who are scared to go under the knife certainly are not alone. Many Massachusetts residents may fear that a doctor's scalpel will slip, the wrong limb will be operated on, or the surgery will be unsuccessful. Sadly, these fears are well-founded. Medical malpractice is an unfortunate, common occurrence throughout the state and the country. Those who are injured by a medical professional's negligence should consider taking immediate legal action.

Unnecessary heart surgeries lead to medical malpractice lawsuits


Surgical operations are an important of the healthcare system. If done properly, they can completely remedy certain medical conditions and lessen the severity of symptoms of other conditions. However, with this potential for reward comes potential risk. A doctor's mistake may lead to serious injuries, permanent disability or death. When this happens, victims should fight to hold those negligent medical professionals accountable.
