  • My 4 year old was overdosed on Ketamine during procedural sedation do I have a case?

    Rebecca’s Answer

    Hello. I am a medical malpractice attorney in Massachusetts. First, I am so sorry to hear about this incident. Second, while typically, a medical malpractice case would require significant injuries to justify prosecution, in certain cases (such as med errors) the carriers are more willing to resolve the matter without filing a lawsuit. I would sugget contacting a MA med mal attorney to discuss further.

  • Why will no attorney take on my Dads Potential Death Claim ?

    Rebecca’s Answer

    You may want to continue your search for an attorney if the death certificate, autopsy or any medical records indicate that your father's death was due to administration of in improper medication or amount of medication. The most important thing is what the death certificate (or autopsy if one was performed) says was the cause of death. I would suggest contacting a few more attorneys.

  • What do I do when I have an accident in my apartment building and the landlord is also my primary care doctor?

    Rebecca’s Answer

    First and most importantly, is to get your injuries treated. It may be potential conflict to treat with your PCP who is also the landlord. Given that it is a weekend and a holiday, should you need immediate treatment, consider going to the emergency room or an urgent care.

    Second, it may be helpful to take photographs of the loose rug and any body parts with visible injuries like bruises or scraps.

    Third, I would leave your landlord a detailed voice message on his phone and send him/her an email reporting the incident to him.

    Fourth, if the loose rug is in a common area where other tenants may be injured, if you are physically able, you may want to consider blocking that area off or taping the rug down to prevent others from falling.

    Finally, once you have sought medical treatment and reported the incident to the landlord, you should contact an experienced attorney for further direction and possible representation.
