Mistakes and misjudgments can lead to long-term, painful illness and injuries, and even paralysis or death.
The medical practice laws in or around Bristol County, Massachusetts allow patients who suffered an injury due to the negligence of a heath care professional to sue for money damages when the doctor, nurse or hospital fails to live up to that standard of care.
Many jurisdictions however, have limits on the amount that victims can recover from medical malpractice injuries, as well as time limits in which such actions must be filed.
