Parents claim medical negligence after freezer malfunction

Significant strides in fertility assistance have occurred in the last 40 years, making it possible for many men and women in Massachusetts and across the country to become parents when they could not on their own. Sadly, thousands of patients seeking fertility help were affected by a hospital freezer malfunction earlier this year, resulting in significant personal loss. Some patients have filed lawsuits claiming the malfunction was medical negligence. 

Family says a failure to diagnose killed patient

In the medical field, time is of the essence. A missed lab test, missed antibiotic, delayed radiology exam or a failure to diagnose can mean life or death for many patients. Families in Massachusetts may be interested in one family's recent lawsuit against a medical center and its medical director. The family is claiming that negligence to perform a test in a timely manner may have led to their loved one's death.

Undaignosed heart disease may have resulted in man's death

Significant advances in the medical field have been made to aid physicians in making quick and accurate diagnoses of patients. Blood tests, radiology tests, ultrasound technology and others all help add to the data that physicians need to make a correct diagnosis of a patient. When patients in Massachusetts suffer from some sort of heart disease, stroke, blood clot or sepsis, a timely diagnosis is vital to the outcome of a patient's health. One family recently settled a wrongful death lawsuit, claiming that a hospital and emergency room physician failed to diagnose man's pending cardiac arrest.

Jury says hospital responsible for girl's medical negligence

The vertebrae in the human body serves the purpose of protecting the important spinal cord. When there is a compromise in the spine, it is physically and/or mentally disabling for a person.

Every day in Massachusetts and across the country, thousands of people undergo surgeries and other medical procedures. Doctors, surgeons and other medical personnel are entrusted with the care of these patients. Although most procedures are fairly common and routine, mistakes can be made any time humans are involved. When mistakes are made during medical procedures, the patient unfortunately suffers the consequences. Medical malpractice is one of the leading causes of death and injury in the United States.
