Medical Malpractice Claims in Waterbury & 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 Waterbury, 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!!!

    Thorough, caring, and patient

    Thorough, caring, and patient

    I don't have the words to describe how wonderful John Parese was to work with. He took my family and I under his wing during a difficult time. He was by our side for 3 years while I was treated. He was thorough, caring, and patient. He was always there to answer questions and made us feel that he was in our corner. John explained our options and walked us through the process many times. It was WAY outside of my comfort zone to go to litigation, but he believed in me and my case. He was phenomenal in court and I was very proud to be part of his team. We are forever thankful and would recommend him to anyone!
