Parents in Massachusetts who are watching their children suffer as a result of an illness often feel helpless and powerless. As a result, they put their faith and trust in the abilities of medical care providers. Unfortunately, sometimes such providers fail to adequately care for a sick patient. The parents of a deceased two-year-old in another state claim that her doctor's failure to diagnose her illness ultimately led to her death.
For many people in Massachusetts, there is no greater stress than having to leave the care of a loved one in the hands of a stranger. Their only hope is that those tasked with providing care are well-trained professionals who will ensure that their loved one is well cared for. Unfortunately, some out-of-state officials claim that the actions of some nurses regarding a mentally and physically disabled woman resulted in the loss of the patient's hand. While criminal charges have been filed, a medical malpractice suit may also be appropriate.
People in Massachusetts require surgical procedures for a variety of different reasons. While some people may elect to have specific surgeries, most people likely undergo such treatment because there is a medical necessity or it will, in some way, improve their quality of life. While these patients are likely aware that there is always some degree of risk, they likely expect that, barring unforeseen medical complications, their life will be somewhat improved after the procedure. Unfortunately, one out-of-state woman claims that a surgical error has actually caused her a severe amount of pain, impacting her everyday life.
Checking someone's blood pressure is typically a common occurrence in a Massachusetts doctor's office. While many people know little about the numbers a nurse might read off, the results of such a check can mean the difference between life and death for some. One out-of-state man recently argued that his doctor's choice to send him home after a significantly high blood pressure reading was medical malpractice. The jury in the case agreed.
When people in Massachusetts experience serious medical issues, they expect that their medical care providers will provide adequate care in order to treat their current condition and attempt to prevent a similar incident from happening in the future. Failure to meet an acceptable standard of care could result in serious consequences for a patient. One federal judge recently ruled that medical malpractice on the part of an out-of-state Veterans Administration Medical Center caused irreparable harm to a patient.
When people in Massachusetts are admitted to a medical care facility, they typically have certain expectations regarding the quality of care they will receive. In most cases, doctors, nurses and other staff provide wonderful care and work to ensure the safety and well-being of their patients. Unfortunately, there could be serious consequences if negligence occurs. For example, one man and his wife are suing an out-of-state rehabilitation facility, claiming medical malpractice led to an amputation.
There is nothing more anxiety-producing for a parent in Massachusetts than an ill child. Those with no medical background are often left hoping that medical care providers take appropriate measures to adequately diagnose and treat their child. Unfortunately, hospital malpractice can result in an overlooked diagnosis, leading to the severe injury or death of a patient. One woman claims that such negligence led to the death of a young out-of-state boy.
While advances in medical technology have made labor and delivery less risky than 100 years ago, there are still risks involved. Indeed, no one's birth story is the same. At the very minimum, however, expectant parents in Massachusetts deserve an attentive physician who is focused on their experience, rather than a personal matter. A mother and father from out-of-state claim that their doctor's concern over the fate of his disabled vehicle left their son at risk. They are now fighting to prove their medical malpractice claims in court.
Many people who arrive at a hospital in Massachusetts are experiencing a serious medical condition requiring intervention. Unfortunately, there could be devastating consequences if appropriate care is not provided at that time. One out-of-state woman recently filed a lawsuit against two doctors and a hospital, claiming their negligence in treating the woman whose estate she is administering constituted medical malpractice and led to her death.
While pregnant women in Massachusetts happily anticipate the moment they will meet the new addition to their family, many people overlook the potential outcomes of a pregnancy. In addition to the regular effects of a pregnancy, some pregnant women suffer complications that may place their own life, as well as the life of their unborn babies, at risk. In a recent medical malpractice lawsuit, one woman and her husband claim that the woman suffered a stroke after a doctor advised her not to go to a hospital.
