Nursing Home Injuries
Safe and ethically run nursing homes are invaluable resources for families providing care for a loved one who cannot care for themselves, whether due to age or disability. Unfortunately, some nursing homes take advantage of their patients, attempting to maximize their profits by providing substandard care that can lead to injuries, illness, or death. Medical malpractice includes nursing home negligence and abuse. An attorney from our firm can help if you or your loved one has fallen victim to nursing home abuse.
Birth injuries are among the most tragic medical malpractice-related personal injuries. For a child's birth to be marred by a serious injury or even a permanent disability is nothing less than catastrophic. If a careless medical practitioner is in any way responsible, that individual should pay in full for the medical and other costs of their negligence.
Surgical errors on the part of surgeons, support staff, and hospital administrators are responsible for tens of thousands of injuries each year. One careless act can lead to surgery on the wrong part of the body, surgery on the wrong patient, or damage from a botched procedure. If you have been injured during surgery, contact Rodman, Rodman & Sandman in Malden, near Boston, Massachusetts, to speak with a medical malpractice and negligence attorney who can help you seek compensation.
Misdiagnosis / Failure to Diagnose
With most acute medical conditions, time is of the essence. The sooner a condition is correctly diagnosed, the sooner it can be treated. Delays in treatment often exacerbate the condition, requiring longer and costlier treatment, and in some cases delay is fatal. A doctor who delays treatment through misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose may be liable for the consequences of his or her actions.
