Medical negligence is defined as an act or omission by a medical professional that fails to meet the acceptable standard for that type of medical care. The provider could be a doctor, a nurse, a dentist or any other person providing health care to you.
When negligence causes harm to a patient, it becomes a case of medical malpractice. Injuries in such a case might include the patient’s illness or condition getting worse, the patient needing additional unexpected medical treatment or surgery, the patient having complications beyond what would normally be expected, or wrongful death, among many other possible damages.
The attorneys at Kazarosian COSTELLO LLP have many years of experience successfully litigating medical malpractice cases involving medical errors, failure to diagnose, wrongful death, nursing home abuse, and many others.
If you believe you were a victim of medical malpractice, contact a lawyer as soon as possible. In Massachusetts, a patient must bring a medical malpractice lawsuit within three years after the time you learn about your injury, or have enough information to believe that your medical treatment may have caused you harm. But you cannot bring your case more than seven years from the date of the incident itself.
As a patient, we know that you expect the highest standard of care in your treatment. If you believe that you or a loved one has been a victim of medical malpractice, contact us. We will advocate for you and handle your case on your behalf.
