As a patient receiving medical care, you should feel confident that your healthcare professionals operate or medicate under the safest of conditions. After all, your health and even your life are at stake. However, there is an alarming rate of poor healthcare being administered throughout the country, including in the state of Massachusetts.


Medical malpractice can be defined as professional negligence by act or omission by a healthcare provider in which the treatment provided falls below the accepted standard of practice in the medical community. In turn, the care administered causes injury or death to a patient, with most cases resulting from a medical error.


Medical malpractice is a major concern and can potentially affect you or your family. In the state of Massachusetts, the concern is so big that doctors and other healthcare providers are required to have significant medical malpractice insurance policies.


If you or a loved one have been the victim of malpractice, consult a Massachusetts lawyer so you can fully understand your rights. You may be eligible to receive compensation for damages and medical costs which you’ve incurred.


Below are common medical malpractice claims:

  • Hospital negligence
    • Failure to provide food, hydration or other basic care
    • Improper monitoring of vital signs
    • Allergic reaction / side effects
    • Overmedicating
    • Charging for services not administered
    • Ignorance of patient history
    • Failure to order relevant tests
    • Improper administration of drugs
    • Delayed response to patient distress
    • Delayed transfer to emergency facility
  • Surgical error
  • Surgical negligence
  • Surgical complications
  • Failure to diagnose

  • Wrong surgery
  • Dangerous prescription drugs
  • Blood contamination
  • Failure to treat
  • Drug-related injuries
  • Birth injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Defective medical devices
  • Wrongful death


As a victim of subpar medical care, you could be at risk for a number of injuries or conditions. If you or a loved one has experienced any of the below, you can file a medical malpractice claim in the state of Massachusetts.

  • Coma or loss of consciousness
  • Gangrene, amputation
  • Impaired motor or cognitive function
  • Delayed healing, worsened condition

I am happy that I chose Frank to be my lawyer, and I will choose him again in the future. Although we agreed that I will pay him more money if my case went to trial, but he did his best to get my case dropped, and in fact the case was dismissed, and I didnt have to go through a trial or pay him extra money. He did all the work and all i had to do was showing up in court, I didnt need to speak a word. Very impressing, Frank is someone you can trust, and I respect him and his work

Very honest. Accepted my case while I was in NYC. Explained to me exactly what will happen at minimum cost. First time I can say I met an honest attorney. As a business and real estate in NYC, I retained many attorneys whose goal was to maximize their fees. Mr Fernandez was very reasonable and upfront honest with his fee. Very highly reccomend.

Frank Fernandez should be the first call anyone makes within the Boston area for legal representation. As a working professional, I made a horrible mistake and I was arrested with the potential of spending a lot of time in jail with the potential to have charges escalated. His efforts saved me a lot of potential pain and grief. He came to my rescue when I had no family locally to help me out of the situation my actions caused.I was fortunate that I found him out of the chaotic choices that are out there. Frank is professional and cares about all of the elements which affected the outcome of my case. My life and my career are back on track and I could not have done this without Frank's ability to react and change the course of difficult decisions. Trust, integrity, honesty, alongside the ability to dig deep, are just some of the characteristics of the person who accepted my case in the middle of the night.If you need a sanctuary when you can only see your life taking a change for the worse, call Frank and explain the elements of your case. I've got his card in my car, my wallet, my desk when I've got the potential for any type of legal action. I know he's someone that I can depend upon.I'm not posting for sake of Frank's business, I'm posting to convey my thanks for a difficult set of circumstances that I'll not face due to his ability to think quickly and make reliable decisions in spite of the issues that resulted from my actions.
