Massive stroke results in medical malpractice claim

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.

Millions awarded in medical malpractice suit against VA

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.

Medical malpractice lawsuit follows amputation

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.

Birth injuries could lead to medical malpractice claims

For most soon-to-be parents in Massachusetts, the months leading up to the birth of their new baby is a time filled with joy and anticipation. Most will leave the hospital with their new, healthy bundle of joy soon after delivery. Unfortunately, some parents experience a more difficult time when their child becomes a victim of a birth injury. In a case where a child is injured due to the negligence of a doctor or other medical care provider, a medical malpractice case may be appropriate.

Woman claims failure to diagnose caused daughter's death

Over the course of the last decade, many urgent care centers have opened in Massachusetts and across the country. The facilities claim to treat ailments such as ear infections and colds and do not require an appointment. While such a convenience appeals to many, one out-of-state woman claims that an urgent care center's failure to diagnose her daughter ultimately led to the girl's death. She has recently filed a medical malpractice claim against the facility.

Jury awards millions in medical malpractice lawsuit

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.

Another suit against doctor with history of medical malpractice

A doctor is currently facing a medical malpractice lawsuit for the 12th time since 1996. Massachusetts readers will note that the most recent suit is related to complications following a laparoscopic procedure. The current case is the second time the doctor has been accused of medical malpractice just this year.

Parents wait to see if son's death was from failure to diagnose

A family is grieving the loss of their teenage son after he died during a basketball game. Purportedly, he had received a sports physical, but it is unclear whether a serious condition was overlooked. While many Massachusetts residents may have been a victim of a doctor's failure to diagnose, it is tragic when a mistake leads to the death of a loved one.

Massachusetts officials concerned about nursing home negligence

A recent report concerning the quality of care provided by the various senior residences has prompted some officials to express their concerns over the facilities that provide care and housing to the elderly. While stories about nursing home negligence are not uncommon, another type of residence has come under increased scrutiny: assisted living centers. While these facilities are less regulated in the care provided to seniors, they might benefit from updated mandates.

Woman claims failure to diagnose led to serious side effects

Doctors spend years studying in order to provide expert, quality care for their future patients. However, they are human and are capable of making serious mistakes. These mistakes may take many forms, including a failure to diagnose, which can lead to serious consequences for the patients who trust them. Understandably, patients in Massachusetts could also fall victim to these errors.
