Dedham’s neighborhoods are a mix of townhouses, apartment complexes, and family homes, in which many of these houses are home to a variety of pets, including dogs. Sadly, each year, several individuals in the Dedham area become victim to unprovoked dog-related injuries. These incidents occur under a variety of circumstances including unleashed dogs that roam off their owner’s property and unrestrained animals that attack persons who come onto the property. Massachusetts’ state law enables victims of canine aggression and attacks to recover compensation from the individual responsible for the injury, such as the owner or keeper of the dog, the person who was given the responsibility to maintain the dog, or the individual who kept a dog known to be aggressive and dangerous for other citizens.
As a growing city, Dedham is the location for a few prominent hospitals, clinics, and medical offices. While medical professionals act in the best interest of their patients, unfortunately, sometimes errors can be made when providing health care. These errors may be made at various stages of the health care process, including at the surgical, pharmaceutical, or HMO insurance phases. If an individual is harmed due to the negligence of a health care provider, he or she may be able to obtain damages for a medical malpractice claim. Examples of medical malpractice include but are not limited to delays in diagnosis of cancer, bowel perforations, infections post surgical operations, birth injuries due to a physician’s error during the birthing process, and errors caused by surgical staff during a procedure.
