Medical Malpractice

Massachusetts Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Medical professionals are trusted to act with the utmost integrity and responsibility when caring for patients. Millions of people bring their medical problems to heath care professionals expecting answers and solutions – not negligence which leads to injury or death.

However, when doctor negligence causes patients to suffer, the malpractice attorneys at the Law Offices of Moir & Ross are here to provide caring support and experienced legal guidance.
Not all accidents or injuries that occur in the doctor’s office or hospital are the result of negligence. Not all surgical complications or birth injuries are caused by medical malpractice.

Our attorneys can examine your unique situation and help you determine if there is a valid claim to move forward. We are experienced handling all types of medical malpractice cases:

  • Failure to diagnose/misdiagnosis: Obviously, not all illness can be prevented. However, when doctor negligence results in the misdiagnosis of cancer, delayed diagnosis of a treatable illness or failure to diagnose certain conditions, that doctor should be held accountable for the damage caused.
  • Emergency room errors: Emergency rooms are notorious for being busy and overcrowded. Doctors and nurses are pushed to their limits to provide care to patients. However, that is no excuse for providing substandard care. Sadly, many patients are made to wait too long and many symptoms are missed in the emergency room, leading to injuries or deaths which could have been avoided. We handle cases involving missed heart attacks, strokes and other conditions.
  • Birth injury and delivery room negligence: The birth of your child is supposed to be the most joyous moment in your life. What happens when you learn that seconds of negligence by the doctor will cause your child to suffer for the rest of his or her life? We help clients find answers and pursue justice in medical malpractice cases involving birth injuries, such as cerebral palsy or Erb’s palsy.
  • Medication errors, surgical negligence and other medical malpractice: Our firm also handles medical malpractice lawsuits arising from prescription negligence and medication errors (doctor, nurse or pharmacy negligence), surgical errors (anesthesia overdose, scalpel slips and other surgery mistakes) and other health care negligence.
