Medical Malpractice

Each year in the United States there is the unfortunate reality that patients will lose their lives due to the negligence of medical professionals. Medical malpractice by definition is professional negligence by act or omission by a health care provider in which the treatment provided falls below the accepted standard of practice in the medical community. This professional negligence routinely causes injury or death to the patient, with most cases involving actual medical error. Standards and regulations for medical malpractice in the United States vary from state to state. We understand that no amount of money can replace a loved one, however, individuals and families may be entitled to financial relief through a Massachusetts Medical Malpractice Lawsuit or a Wrongful Death Lawsuit.

A claim for medical malpractice can arise in variety of medical settings. It is most important and in the best interest of everyone involved to contact an experienced medical malpractice attorney right away. Medical malpractice claims are extremely complex to litigate in Massachusetts and you want an experienced attorney on your side.

Review: Altman and Altman LLP

    I was coming home from work traveling on 95 south at a complete stop when a Jeep Cherokee traveling 65 MPH hit me from behind. Injuries suffered were a Torn Rotator Cuff, Torn MCL, Blood Clot with Neck and Back damage. I had no idea how complex the process was. Dealing with the Insurance companies, Surgeries, PT, legal issues, doctors and bills. It was overwhelming and time consuming. David Altman stepped took care of everything every step of the way in an incredibly professional caring way. He was quick to respond to any questions or concerns including weekends. In 2 years there wasn't one time where a phone call wasn't returned with in 30 minutes. David kept me positive during the most negative times. 2 years later I'm pretty close to being back where I was and David is the reason why. I was able to just focus on getting better and he took care of everything else. He was very aggressive and professional with the insurance companies in this settlement of this case. He kept me up to date on a regular basis through the whole process. I can't thank David and his staff enough and strongly recommend them to anyone.

    I am not very good at words. I was involved in a horrible accident. David and his team (Thank You Asia & Rick) are wonderful, talented and compassionate. If it were not for their help, I don’t believe the outcome would be as good as it is. I am glad my case is settled, Altman & Altman are my go to team from now on. Thank you so very much.
