As a growing city, Malden 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.
In order to get around Malden with a motor vehicle, citizens use major highways including Route 28, Route 60, Route 99, and U.S. 1. During the past five years, the majority of non-alcohol related car accidents in Malden occurred on Route 60. Although officials in Malden work hard to aid the decrease of motor vehicle accidents, Malden has the highest rate of fatal pedestrian accidents in the state of Massachusetts. The most prevalent site for accidents involving a pedestrian and vehicle occurred at intersections of Route 1 throughout the city. Overall, the number of fatal car crashes associated with excessive speed is also high in Malden and some citizens have petitioned the city to decrease the speed limits in neighborhood areas close to major roads and highways.
City officials continue to work diligently to decrease the risk of harm for Malden’s residents. To follow this measure, in April of 2012, the Malden City Council passed a law requiring pit bulls and other dogs similar to the breed to wear muzzles in public, after a wave of dog bites and dog attacks throughout Massachusetts in 2008, 2009, and 2010. According to statistics released by Malden’s city officials, 6.7 percent of dogs are responsible for 32-33 percent of all dog bites and attacks. Despite city officials’ efforts, Malden continues to have one of the lowest rates of leash law enforcement in the Commonwealth. The leash laws currently in place along with the newly added muzzle requirements are set in Malden for the benefit of all individuals, including pedestrians who might come in contact with a violent or aggressive dog. If you have been the victim of a dog attack or bite due to the owner’s refusal to follow the city’s leash and muzzle laws, you might be able to obtain compensation for your medical treatment.
