Middlesex Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the United States. It is estimated that more than 200,000 people die each year from some form of medical malpractice, and many more are severely injured. Yet fewer than two percent of people who have been victimized by medical malpractice even seek compensation. If you or someone you love has been a victim of medical malpractice, you should at the very least talk to our Woburn medical malpractice lawyers. Not just for your benefit, or that of your family, but also to help prevent an incompetent medical professional or institution from harming others. We can help you obtain money to cover additional medical expenses, as well as compensation for lost wages, pain and suffering, physical therapy and more. If the medical malpractice results in a serious personal injury or death, the loved ones of the person injured or killed may also have a claim for loss of consortium and/or wrongful death.
Of course, surgeries and other forms of medical treatment do not always turn out the way we like. While tragic, every death or severe injury involving medical treatment is not necessarily medical malpractice. However, when a healthcare professional deviates from the medical community’s standard of care, it can and often does constitute medical malpractice. Such malpractice can take many forms, including failure to properly diagnose, medication errors and unnecessary surgeries. The negligent parties involved may be doctors, hospitals, nurses and other healthcare professionals.
Determining when medical malpractice has taken place, and proving it, is highly complicated. We understand medical malpractice law and will work with experts from the medical profession itself to build the most compelling case on your behalf. Contact us today for a free evaluation of your case. You will owe us nothing unless we obtain compensation for you.
