Family settles lawsuit involving fatal medication error

Advancements in medicines have helped heal patients from cancer, stabilize blood pressure, regulate heart rates, level blood sugars and offer relief of unpleasant symptoms such as pain. Although drugs have an incredible ability to assist patients with medical conditions, they can be extremely harmful to an individual's health if administered incorrectly. Individuals in Massachusetts who have suffered an adverse reaction from a medication error may find some relief in the advice of a skilled medical malpractice attorney.

Woman files medical malpractice lawsuit for needle in spine

It is a common occurrence for women to receive an epidural during childbirth and/or prior to a cesarean section.

Gas stations/convenience stores may be liable for motor vehicle-pedestrian collisions involving customers

Gas stations with convenience stores are useful places to fuel up with gas (and coffee) on the way to work, but their layouts can be treacherous. In some cases, they are designed in such a way that cars can enter without significantly slowing down and there are not always guardrails or barriers in place to protect customers at the fuel pumps or those entering the store. Recently, a Massachusetts court held that if you or a family member are hit by a car in such a situation, the business may be liable for your injuries.
