Physician Liability

As a patient, one expects their doctor to provide helpful medical care. Unfortunately, quality care is not always administered, and often patients are injured or killed by medical errors. When physicians fail to meet the appropriate standard of care, causing injury to his or her patient, the physician may be held liable for committing medical malpractice – and Altman & Altman LLP has been helping victimized patients from Cambridge, the Greater Boston Area and throughout Massachusetts for decades.

What are Some Examples of Medical Errors?

During the course of treatment at an outpatient center, hospital or private doctor’s office, a patient may be injured by mistakes such as:

  • Medication Errors, such as prescribing too much medication or being prescribed the wrong kind
  • Nursing Errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Misdiagnosis of a Medical Condition
  • Delayed Diagnosis of a Medical Condition
  • Failure to Diagnose a Medical Condition

Medical errors can range from mistakes that cause minor injuries all the way up to mistakes that result in the wrongful death of a patient. Regardless of the severity, when a doctor, nurse or any other practitioner of healthcare makes a mistake that results in pain and suffering for the patient, they may be eligible to receive compensation because of that mistake, which can go towards expenses that result, such as more medical bills, time missed from work and rehabilitation from the injury.
