Personal injury lawyer Stephen Gordon works frequently under the different rules relating to medical malpractice claims in both Massachusetts , and his experience with the expert review of professional negligence cases can help you in either state. In Massachusetts, a patient’s complaint must first be presented to a medical malpractice tribunal, which determines whether the claim is substantial enough to proceed in court. In Arizona, a medical malpractice complaint must be supported by the affidavit of a qualified medical professional with credentials comparable to those of the defendant physician, nurse or technician.
