A new study has come out that reveals some disturbing facts about Massachusetts doctors and how they tend to settle out of court on cases involving negligence and malpractice. There is a growing concern with the state of Massachusetts where the doctors continue to practice medicine to uninformed patients without being penalized in the first place.
Dr. Charles Kawada, a well-known physician at Mt. Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, has continued to practice after settling out of three cases in the past ten years. One patient, who Dr. Kawada had delivered her child, stated that what she experienced was "unbelievable, probably a parent's worst nightmare." Her baby suffered permanent brain damage as a result of his inappropriate methods. For this lawsuit and others, Dr. Kawada has never been disciplined by the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine.
Patients need to understand they have options when a case is in progress. The first step you must take is to ensure appropriate legal action is taken place. Birth injuries, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injuries, and other issues including permanent, lifelong disability can result from a doctor or hospital’s negligence. Patients need to understand that an experienced attorney can make a great deal of difference in how these medical malpractice cases are carried out.
