Fighting for the Rights Of Those Injured by Negligent or Careless Actions

Boston Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Were You or a Loved One Injured By a Doctor's Mistake?

Every year, countless people are injured or die from preventable medical errors. These errors often occur as a result of reduced staffing, hectic schedules, or an increase in demands from employers in hospitals. Regardless of how it happened, it can be traumatizing to suffer from a medical professional’s negligence. It is equally traumatizing if the harm is caused by a medical professional’s simple careless or reckless conduct.

The Boston personal injury attorneys at Mitcheson & Lee LLP have experience in the field of medical malpractice and take pride in advocating for the best interest of our clients. We understand that choosing a lawyer to represent you in a medical malpractice claim is a task which requires the utmost care and consideration. Medical malpractice cases require a significant time commitment from your legal team due to the complexity of the discovery and litigation processes.

It is important to speak to a sophisticated team of legal professionals for help in discovering, proving, and recovering from personal injuries. Call (617) 934-3207 to speak to an attorney.

Medical Malpractice & the "Standard of Care"

It is important to understand that medical malpractice is not merely having a poor health outcome after a medical treatment. Medical malpractice applies to a person who receives medical treatment that is below the acceptable “standard of care” for medical professionals. This “standard of care” refers to the generally accepted practices and procedures used by other medical professionals in the same geographic area when treating patients suffering from the same disease under similar circumstances.

We pursue many types of medical malpractice claims, including:

  • Brain injuries
  • Birth injuries
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Harmful pharmaceuticals
  • Hospital negligence
  • Infection acquired at a hospital
  • Surgical error
  • Surgical negligence
  • Wrong diagnosis
  • Wrongful death

Massachusetts law has a number of strict requirements that must be followed if you are moving forward with a medical malpractice suit. In addition to the burden of proof being on the plaintiff, the statute of limitations requires the plaintiff to bring suit within three years of the injury. However, there are few exceptions to the statute of limitations which may apply, including if the victim is a child under the age of six. In this event, the statute may be extended to six years.
