What actions qualify as medical malpractice?
There are many different behaviors that could constitute medical malpractice, but most of them fall within one of several broad categories. These categories include:
- Surgical errors
- Delayed / Incorrect diagnosis
- Birth injuries
- Wrongful death incidents
- Hospital negligence
- Emergency room error
- Pharmaceutical mistakes
These categories generally encompass the most common incidents of medical malpractice. But even if you have a claim that perhaps doesn’t fit these categories, you should still discuss your legal options with an attorney in Massachusetts that’s familiar with medical malpractice law.
