Medical Malpractice cases are complex and can have many different variables. When a patient files a claim that a medical professional was negligent or abusive in their position, there are some cases when the patient may be partially at fault.
HOW A EXPERIENCED MEDICAL MALPRACTICE LAWYER CAN HELP
Depending on your state, you may have more regulations that determine the verdict of your case. In Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, the only regulations surrounding shared fault are comparative negligence. This regulation explains that if there are more than one party who is at fault for the injuries, a percentage of fault is given for each party. Compensation will be given based on the percentage of fault. Modified Comparative Negligence is offered in Massachusetts and Connecticut and ensures that injured parties are subject to compensation from additional parties if the victim was less than 50 percent responsible. When you have your free case consultation by the medical malpractice lawyers at Rob Levine & Associates, we will examine the situation to ensure that you are not partially at fault.
