Medical malpractice: Patients can expect certain things

On Behalf of | Aug 17, 2020 | Medical Malpractice

If you are scheduled to undergo surgery at a Massachusetts hospital, you can reasonably expect that your medical team will adhere to all industry regulations that govern such matters. Your doctors, nurses, lab technicians and other team members must provide high-quality care according to accepted safety standards. There is no excuse for negligence. If you suffer injury because of substandard medical care, you can seek restitution by filing a medical malpractice claim in a civil court.

In filing such a claim, you are tasked with providing evidence to the court that shows someone to whom you entrusted your medical care committed negligence. That is not enough, however, to fully substantiate your claim. You must also convince the court or jury that the negligence in question caused you to suffer emotional, physical or economic damages.

Sadly, there are thousands of patient fatalities every year. Many deaths are later determined to have been easily prevented were it not for medical negligence.
