What is the potential liability in a medical malpractice case in Massachusetts?
Massachusetts law allows plaintiffs who are successful in their medical malpractice claims to recover all of their economic expenses from the defendants in the case. Punitive damages are also permissible. Damages for noneconomic injuries such as pain and suffering are allowed but are in many cases limited to $500,000. Some exceptions to the $500,000 limit occur for particularly egregious cases.
