Can I get interest on any medical malpractice judgment i get ?

My medical maplractice injury case has been draggin on for months and months and my attorney keeps telling me we are almost done and that I will get some money. Since this is all taking so long am I entitled to interest on whatever damages I eventually get? What does MA law say about it?

If you actually go to trial and prevail, Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 231, Section 6B allows medical malpractice plaintiffs to collect prejudgment interest of 12% per year.  The interest accrues from the date on which the action commenced.  Good luck, and please tell your friends about The Forum.
