A study published by Health Affairs concerning recent trends in medical malpractice lawsuits in Massachusetts shows that most cases are dropped somewhere between the filing of the lawsuit and its ultimate resolution. In fact, the percentage of cases dropped is 59% during the period between 2006 and 2010.
That’s a very high number and reflects how difficult it is to successfully prosecute medical malpractice claims. That’s why we carefully screen all of our inquiries before we decide to represent someone in a medical malpractice case. Each and every medical malpractice case requires extensive research and legal expertise. Over the years, our firm has been successful in handling medical malpractice cases precisely because we engage in a rigorous screening process. That’s only fair to the potential client as well.
