Lawsuit alleges brain injury result of medical negligence

Medical malpractice occurs when a health care provider fails to meet a certain standard of care, resulting in injury or death to the patient. In other words, when a physician's mistakes or oversight cause serious harm or even death to a patient, that physician may be held liable for negligence, in Massachusetts or anywhere in the nation. In another state, a recent lawsuit alleges medical error caused a patient to suffer a brain injury.

Two guardians filed a complaint on behalf of a third individual, the patient who was injured due to the doctor's alleged negligence. These plenary guardians are suing a doctor and the emergency clinic where he was employee. The plaintiffs claim that the defendants failed to exercise necessary skills expected from medical providers and health care facilities, and failed to meet prevailing standards of good medical care.

According to the complaint, filed in June 2017, the defendants delayed a laboratory procedure and treatment. This purportedly resulted in a brain injury and other damages to the patient. For allegedly failing to adequately examine and diagnose the patient in a timely manner and failing to get an adequate medical history from the patient, the plaintiffs seek full financial accountability from the defendants.

They are seeking judgment against the defendants in a trial by jury, requesting damages that exceed $15,000 plus all legal costs. Typically, any damages awarded in a successfully litigated lawsuit involving brain injury are used toward the costs of ongoing medical care and treatment. A Massachusetts attorney with experience regarding the complexities of brain injury cases often proves crucial to a successful outcome in these types of medical malpractice lawsuits.
