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.
