When You Are Injured By Medical Malpractice, We Are Here To Help
Medical malpractice cases are difficult to prove. Determining that a doctor or other health care provider made a mistake or fell below the acceptable standard of care is not enough to be considered malpractice. The mistake made, either by error or omission, must have led to injury or death.
Furthermore, in Massachusetts, medical malpractice claims must first be brought before a special medical malpractice tribunal, consisting of a judge, a lawyer and a doctor. Only if the tribunal finds there is sufficient evidence to merit a trial may the case proceed to court.
