Decision Shorts - Important Massachusetts Court Decisions

Here are some important decisions that have come down in the last year that effect negligence claims in Massachusetts:

Rabelo v. Nasif, et al (Massachusetts Superior Court)

A claim against a medical center for "negligent credentialing" of a doctor is cognizable under Massachusetts law.

Medina v. Hockberg (Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court)

A medical professional - other than a mental health professional - owes no duty to a third person arising from any claimed special relationship between the medical professional and a patient.

Dos Santos, et al v.Coleta, et al (Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court)

In cases where a negligent failure to warn is not the only viable theory of negligence, such as where the plaintiff alleges negligent design or negligent failure to comply with a company safety policy, a landowner may still owe a duty to a lawful entrant to remedy and open and obvious danger.
