Medical Malpractice. A Worcester family was offered $250,000 in a medical malpractice case versus UMass Memorial Medical Center when a 78-year-old patient arrived at the hospital for congestive heart failure and another heart condition, but was not transferred to the critical care unit until 11 hours later. It was not until the man lost consciousness that he was finally moved to the proper unit and it was later determined he died due to the failure of nurses to transfer him to the appropriate location. Another case in Worcester occurred in 2010 at Saint Vincent Hospital. A 56-year-old man was awarded almost two million dollars when it was determined a medical provider failed to accurately diagnosis his symptoms. The misdiagnosis resulted in a delayed referral to a neurologist for a brain biopsy and, as a result, the victim suffered severe and permanent brain damage. A physician’s assistant claimed the patient had vertigo, when he was actually suffering from multiple strokes due to intravascular lymphoma.
Dog Bites. While dogs are a valuable member of the family, they also have protective instincts that can cause them to act aggressively when least expected. Dog bites are no laughing matter, as they can result in serious injury or even death. A 3-year-old boy required more than 100 stitches in his face after a neighbor’s pit bull bit him in Worcester. The young boy experienced serious emotional trauma following the incident, which frequently occurs to dog bite victims, especially children. If you or your child has been bit by a dog, a personal injury lawyer in Worcester with expertise in dog bite claims can help you seek damages for your injuries including medical bills and pain and suffering.
Slip and Fall. When a patron slips, trips, or falls, in a public space such as a grocery store, the property owner may be held liable for the person’s damages if negligence is found. For example, a Worcester slip and fall incident occurred at a supermarket when a woman fell on a waxed floor where no warning signs were posted. The victim suffered permanent damage to her cervical disc requiring surgery and the store was found responsible for her injuries for failing to heed proper safety precautions. Other slip and fall accidents in the area include a visitor to an apartment complex who fell on snow and ice that was not visible due to poor lighting, as well as a nurse who suffered a serious fall caused by uneven stair riser heights. In both cases, the property owners were found liable for the victim’s losses for failing to maintain safe premises.
Car Accidents. A car crash can happen anywhere, at any time, and car accidents in Worcester are no different. A serious collision can upend your entire life and, in addition to suffering physical injuries, has the potential to harm your financial circumstances. Medical expenses, vehicle repairs, and time lost from work can take a huge toll on a person’s hard-earned savings. To ensure your best chance of recovering financially, contact a personal injury attorney in Worcester to help you seek the maximum compensation to which you are entitled. At Tapalian Law, our experienced injury team will handle your claim while you focus on your physical recovery.
