Medical Malpractice Claims in Monroe, CT & The Element of Standard of Care

A medical professional’s mistake alone does not mean they are liable for malpractice. Under Connecticut law, a similar healthcare provider must attest to the evidence in which the subject medical professional has breached the standard of care. “The standard of care is the level of care, skill, and treatment that, under the relevant circumstances, is recognized as acceptable and appropriate by a reasonably prudent similar health care providers.”

Patient Safety America- Their Mind. Your Life.

In 2002, Dr. John James’ 19-year-old son was diagnosed with heart arrhythmia. A few weeks later, he collapsed while running and later passed away. Dr. James believes his son died as a result of uninformed, careless, and unethical care by cardiologists. He has since devoted his life to improving patient safety. James’ website, Patient Safety America, lists the three levels in which patients can protect themselves.

  1. Be a Wise Consumer of Healthcare – Demand Quality, Cost-Effective Care for Yourself and Those you Love,
  2. Participate in Patient Safety Leadership through Boards, Panels and Commissions that Implement Policy and Laws, and
  3. Sponsor and Work for Laws that Favor Safer Care, Transparency, and Accountability.

James hopes to establish a nationally enforced patient bill of rights similar to that of the rights in which workers have to protect them from unsafe working conditions. For more information on James’ efforts to educate patients concerned about their healthcare and to view his ‘National Hospitalized Patient Bill of Rights’, visit his website http://patientsafetyamerica.com/.

Client Reviews of Our Monroe, CT Personal Injury Attorneys

    Friendly, professional and VERY responsive!

    Friendly, professional and VERY responsive!

    Attorney John Buckley was highly recommended to me by quite a few people and upon my first meeting to discuss my case, I knew immediately that I was in good hands. He took his time to explain everything to me in great detail and stayed in communication throughout my entire case. His staff was also extremely friendly, professional and VERY responsive! I actually never had to reach out about my case because they over-communicated with me from beginning to end. My accident was very unfortunate, but I’m extremely grateful I was working with Attorney Buckley through it all! I highly recommend this law firm!!!

    John Parese is the best!

    John Parese is the best!

    Attorney Parese just finished a motor vehicle case for me. At the time of my accident, I was a 32 year vet of a police department and the accident forced me into retirement. I am just a working person who depends on attorneys like John to help people in need and they can trust. John Parese is the best.

    It is clear that helping people is important to you

    It is clear that helping people is important to you

    This is a very heartfelt thank you for all you did to help resolve my case. The accident and what followed was confusing and a bit overwhelming. However, the best thing to come of it was the recommendation to contact you. Your expertise as well as your down-to-earth and friendly manner immediately put me at ease. I greatly appreciated your willingness to go above and beyond (meeting and bringing paperwork to my house on a weekend after my surgery) and all the time you took to explain all aspects of the case. Your generosity in giving me some of your fee was also very much appreciated. It is clear that helping people is important to you, and I am grateful to have been of those you helped. Hopefully, I will never need to use your services again, but I will be sure to recommend you to others who do.

    Parese listened carefully

    Parese listened carefully

    John Parese listened carefully, we discussed options, he gave me his expert advice on where he thought we would end up and he went to work to attain the damages I was due. I received status calls and notifications along the way and received the settlement we were expecting. I never doubted John’s integrity and trusted being in his hands. I hope I don’t get rear ended again but if I do, I’ll call John right away.

    From the moment I met Attorney Buckley, he put me at ease.

He has a great team of paralegals and assistants who were courteous and professional. I am grateful for his help.
