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.

Hospital malpractice led to child's death, suit says

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.

Parents claim son's cerebral palsy caused by medical malpractice

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.

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.

Medical malpractice suit follows woman's death from pneumonia

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.

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.

Failure to diagnose ectopic pregnancy may have led to coma

Because there are so many babies safely born every day in Massachusetts, it may be easy to overlook the potential dangers that a pregnant woman may face. Even a typical pregnancy places an enormous strain on a woman's body. In some cases, an atypical pregnancy can prove fatal. One out-of-state family is now arguing that doctor's failure to diagnose a woman's ectopic pregnancy left her in a coma.

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.

FDA proposes more regulation to avoid possible misdiagnoses

The Food and Drug Administration is charged with ensuring public safety from potentially harmful foods, medications and medical devices. Now, it is proposing additional oversight of certain laboratory testing in an effort to reduce the numbers of misdiagnoses than have been blamed on inaccurate test results. There may be some Massachusetts patients who were harmed by faulty or inaccurate results.
