The Difficulty of Winning a Massachusetts Medical Malpractice Case

In the state of Massachusetts, many people each and every year claim to have been the victim of medical negligence.  And many people are in fact injured as a result of medical negligence.  But, it is tough, real tough, to win such cases in Massachusetts.  It is widely believed that only one out of ten medical malpractice cases actually prevail in Massachusetts.  Since the odds are clearly in favor of defense attorneys in these cases, plaintiff lawyers have to be very selective about what medical malpractice cases they take on.  Therefore, if you feel you have a case, you may need to consult with more than one attorney before you find an attorney that will agree to take on your case.
