SAMPLING OF ELDER ABUSE SETTLEMENTS

CONFIDENTIALITY OF MCARE SETTLEMENTS: Although not mandated by law, the standard Release that is required in most settlements of medical malpractice cases which includes contributions from the MCARE Fund contain a confidentiality provision which prohibits the settling party or his or her attorney from divulging details about either the case or the terms of the settlement. MCARE also frequently attempts to force a settling party or the Court to “seal” the records pertaining to the settlement so that they can not be viewed by the general public. Through these measures, MCARE improperly tries to muzzle victims of medical malpractice and prevent others from learning about acts of medical malpractice occurring in their community.

The complexity of a medical malpractice lawsuit demands a team of highly skilled attorneys, paralegals, nurses, support staff and technical experts. Over the last five years, the experienced and dedicated team at Hourigan, Kluger & Quinn has recovered a record number of verdicts and settlements for victims of medical malpractice or their families.
