Lawsuit claims medical negligence left man permanently disfigured

Most individuals, whether in Massachusetts or anywhere in the country, have relied on health care professionals from birth, trusting doctors' medical knowledge and experience to keep them and loved ones healthy. Sadly, sometimes that trust doesn't pan out and certain doctors -- through oversight, careless errors or just plain medical negligence -- fail to exercise the skill and standard of care expected of the medical community. A medical malpractice lawsuit in another state alleges just such carelessness.

A patient is suing his medical providers, claiming that their negligence resulted in his pain and suffering. The man recently filed a complaint naming as defendants a health care provider and two medical facilities, Wellness Center Inc. and Conforti Chiropractic. The plaintiff went to the defendants to receive treatment after a fall in an ice skating rink in the summer of 2015.

It was due to the defendants' allegedly negligent treatment and care that, the complaint claims, the patient suffered severe and permanent disability, disfigurement and mental anguish. The suit alleges that the defendants failed to review the patient's medical records from physicians seen in the past. Additionally, they failed to update or revise the diagnosis or even to perform adequate examinations -- either physical or neurological -- when the patient's condition showed significant deterioration.

Because of this alleged medical negligence, the patient claims to have also suffered loss of an important bodily function as well as aggravation of a previously existing condition. The man seeks a judgment of damages in excess of $15,000 as well as legal fees and interest. Anyone in Massachusetts who has similarly suffered serious injuries as a result of a medical professional's negligence does not have to suffer in silence; there are legal resources available to advise and offer counsel and support in cases when a medical malpractice lawsuit might be appropriate.
