Massachusetts loss of chance doctrine
Read an article about the loss of chance doctrine in Massachusetts medical malpractice cases, especially when a doctor negligently fails to conduct appropriate testing and evaluation and misses the chance to diagnose cancer at an earlier stage, thereby reducing the chance of survival.

Medical Malpractice lawsuits are a check and balance on the medical system. Statistics show and that medical errors cause more than a quarter million deaths in this country annually (that doesn't include millions of other medical errors that go unreported or are not large enough to bring a medical malpractice lawsuit for).

Now Congress is trying to reduce this one main check and balance on the medical profession by reducing the amount that victim's families (and victims themselves) can get in a medical malpractice case. If this passes, it will result in more medical malpractice occurring. You can help stop this by writing to your Congressmen. And please share this with anyone and everyone you know. Here's where you can contact them. Please do it now:

THIS IS NOT A DRILL
Congress is passing new law taking away your rights...right now
Congress is pushing legislation right now that will make lawsuits-including yours and those of your family and friends-nearly impossible to pursue here in Massachusetts. These bills will "pre-empt" Massachusetts law, and rig the system against individuals like you. These laws tip the scales in favor of powerful corporate defendants—insurance companies and big medical conglomerates.
We need to send a strong message to our congressmen:
Senator Ed Markey www.markey.senate.gov/contact
Senator Elizabeth Warren www.warren.senate.gov/?p=email_senator
stating that these anti-civil justice bills must be stopped. Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in this country, and Massachusetts is no exception. The US House of Representatives Judiciary Committee even refused to exclude cases where doctors operated on the wrong body part or wrong person, or where the harm was caused intentionally or due to sexual abuse. If you agree that it is unacceptable for the Federal Government to tell the State of Massachusetts how to run our own courts, and to limit your right to hold corporations accountable, contact your Congress person and centers today. You have the power to tell your representatives to stand up for you and your family and vote NO on offensive anti-civil justice legislation that interferes with long-standing Massachusetts laws and customs
