Doctor error: Surgical tools left behind in patient

Weight loss is on the minds of many people in Massachusetts and in the United States. Some are able to achieve weight loss through diet and exercise, but many are not. For those who need additional weight loss assistance, many seek the help of medical professionals. One woman who opted for surgery to help achieve weight loss has filed a medical malpractice lawsuit claiming that a doctor error has resulted in physical pain and additional medical treatment.

Parents awarded $800,000 for hospital's negligence during birth

Doctors are often accused of being too quick to choose a cesarean section as the method of childbirth. Although there may be many unnecessary C-sections, the surgery can be a lifesaving operation for a child and mother. Unfortunately, there are some circumstances that warrant a C-section, but a doctor neglects to offer one. Massachusetts's parents may be interested in one case of negligence during birth where a couple's child showed evident distress and was born stillborn.

Failure to diagnose allowed cancer to grow for 5 years

It has become common knowledge that frequent use of tobacco products can lead to life-threatening lung cancer. It may not be common knowledge that people who do not use tobacco products can also develop the same illness. Fortunately, there are treatments for these cancers no matter the cause, but an accurate and timely diagnosis is required. Massachusetts readers may be interested in one man's lawsuit claiming that he is sicker than he should be because of a doctor's failure to diagnose him in a timely manner.

Family awarded $4 million in failure to diagnose case

Medical technology has greatly advanced the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and acute ailments by medical professionals, but the technology only works to the advantage of the patient when it is utilized. In circumstances where it is not used, it can be detrimental to a patient. Massachusetts patients may be interested to learn about a recent jury verdict in another state after a failure to diagnose may have resulted in a woman's death.
