According to Connecticut medical malpractice law, physicians who deviate from the standard of care and leave the patient permanently injured may be committing Connecticut medical malpractice.

Two physicians were fined $7,500 and $8,000 for excessively prescribing high doses of opioids to patients. The doctors, from Fairfield and Colchester respectively, were placed on 18 months of probation and one-year probation and reprimand, respectively, for their wrong-doing. 

A South Windsor doctor was fined $10,000 for failure to order PAP smears on a patient for six years after diagnosing her with cancer ten years ago. 

If you believe a physician who is treating you or a loved one has deviated from the standard of care and you question the level of care you have received, contact the attorneys at McEnery Price Messey & Sullivan.
