Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Springfield MA

When a visit to the doctor or a stay in the hospital results in a worsening of your medical condition, medical negligence may have played a role. When a medical provider, a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, surgeon, or anesthesiologist fails to follow accepted standards of care and an injury results, you, the victim, may be able to seek financial compensation.

Help for Victims of Medical Negligence

In medical malpractice cases, the truth can be hard to find. Doctors and hospitals try to cover up errors or obscure what really happened. Patients who already had serious medical problems may not realize that a surgical mistake or emergency room error occurred. Also, few people really understand the complex issues involved in medical care.

The medical malpractice attorneys of Raipher, P.C. have a long record of success in helping victims of medical malpractice get answers and compensation. We have a team of experienced attorneys dedicated to handling these cases: Raipher Pellegrino, Joseph Pellegrino, and Matthew J. King.

When appropriate, we consult with medical experts who can properly assess medical records and determine the correct standard of care. We investigate the past performance of the doctor, hospital or medical professional to see whether there has been a pattern of questionable practice. We do what it takes to get to the truth, and to get you fair compensation for your losses.

Examples and causes of medical malpractice claims

We handle medical malpractice and nursing home negligence claims resulting from:

  • Surgical errors
  • Hospital errors and negligence
  • Birth injuries
  • Medication errors
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Failure to obtain informed consent
  • Failure to timely treat injuries or illnesses
  • Failure to take a complete medical history
  • Failure to refer to specialist

We have filed suit against doctors, dentists, chiropractors, physical therapists, pharmacists, hospitals, clinics, and other individual and institutional medical providers. We investigate all possible sources of compensation, including that available from the provider’s personal and institutional liability insurance or even workers’ compensation.
