Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is negligence committed by a professional health care provider – a doctor, nurse, dentist, technician, hospital, or hospital worker – whose performance of duties departs from a standard of practice of those with similar training and experience, resulting in harm to a patient or patients.

Doctors and other health-care providers must follow certain standards when caring for patients. While a simple mistake is not enough to constitute negligence, a death or injury caused by the failure to provide reasonably appropriate or common standards of care or the failure to diagnose an easily detectable illness may be malpractice. If you are not sure what might be considered as medical malpractice, talk with a Massachusetts medical malpractice lawyer. The Peabody, MA medical malpractice attorney at our office can be reached at 800.262.9200.

Some states have passed laws capping damage awards, limiting attorneys’ fees and shortening the time period in which plaintiffs can bring malpractice suits.

Some states instituted no-fault liability for malpractice claims, or developed arbitration panels to hear medical malpractice claims before they could be filed in court to be determined by a judge or jury.

  • Talk to a lawyer if you think you have a medical malpractice claim.
  • Tell the attorney exactly what happened to you, from the first time you visited your doctor through your last contact with him or her.
  • What were the circumstances surrounding your illness or injury?
  • How did your doctor treat it?
  • What did your doctor tell you about your treatment?
  • Did you follow your doctor’s instructions?
  • What happened to you?

Answers to these and other relevant questions become important if you think your doctor may have committed malpractice. Call 800.262.9200 to speak with a Medical malpractice lawyer in Essex County, MA.
