Almost $8 million awarded in medical malpractice lawsuit

The spine is an incredibly important part of the human anatomy. An injury to it can often have catastrophic consequences for victims in Rhode Island and across the country. Often, those suffering from such an injury may not realize the severity, assuming they may have simply injured the muscles of their back. As a result, it often falls to medical care providers to recognize the potential of severe injury and take action to reduce the chance of additional harm. Unfortunately, a medical malpractice lawsuit claims that workers at an urgent care failed to provide appropriate guidance to a man suffering a spinal injury, resulting in permanent paralysis.

Doctors are human, and while most patients in Rhode Island expect that their physicians -- regardless of the procedure being formed -- will meet the accepted standard of care, they also expect that, if a mistake occurs, appropriate action will be taken to correct it. Unfortunately, a doctor in another state is facing criminal charges. The charges came after prosecutors said that doctor error led to a woman's death.

Cancer is always a scary diagnosis. However, with today's advances in technology and the research that has been conducted, a cancer diagnosis is often not a death sentence if caught in time.

Unfortunately, the family of a deceased man claims that had their father received a cancer diagnosis earlier, the illness may have been cured.

Family prevails in claim that delayed diagnosis led to transplant

Many parents in Rhode Island have concerns about the health of their children.

Woman claims medical malpractice caused a lifetime of pain

Lawsuit claims hospital allowed unqualified doctor to practice

Patients in Rhode Island and across the country put their lives in the hands of medical care providers. They expect that their doctors will be able to diagnosis and treat their ills.

Woman awarded over $24 million in medical malpractice case

For most families in Rhode Island, the birth of a child is a time of celebration and happiness. Unfortunately, the aftermath of delivery turned into a nightmare for one family in another state. A medical malpractice lawsuit filed against the hospital as a result of the harm the woman suffered recently resulted in a significant financial award.

Who may be named as defendants in a cerebral palsy lawsuit?

When parents in Rhode Island have to deal with the consequences of their child suffering a birth injury, there might be questions about whom to hold responsible. The repercussions of a birth injury such as cerebral palsy will be life-changing, and financial relief will be essential. While the doctor is typically the first person to be blamed, procedures at the medical facility or hospital may indicate partial liability.

Medical facilities must have appropriate policies and procedures in place, and the hiring and training of staff must meet specific standards. Patients must be protected from suffering further harm by providing care that will keep them healthy and safe. Hospitals that fail to meet the required standards prescribed by guidelines of professional associations, laws, regulations and common practice could be named as defendants in birth injury lawsuits -- along with the medical staff that was involved.
