One common theme may often hear in cases involving medical malpractice in Providence County is that plaintiffs decide to take action in order to prevent others from having to experience what they did. Many of those that we here at DeLuca & Weizenbaum LTD share those same sentiments. Yet even still, medical errors still occur, with the same ones often being repeated in certain cases. The reoccurrence of such errors may be due to inefficiencies in providers’ own internal reporting systems.
There are many things that an expectant mother in Providence County can do to help avoid the potential of delivery complications, such as maintaining a healthy weight or taking prenatal vitamins. However, there are also certain factors beyond a mother’s control that can end up impacting their deliveries, as well. One of these is the size and shape of her pelvis.

Whenever a patient seeks surgical treatment at any of the hospitals or medical centers in Providence County, the potential exists for there to be complications. Such issues may arise due to errors made during the performance of a procedure itself, or a failure to render adequate care during the post-operative period. While the mechanisms of these complications may differ (e.g. intraoperative issues, surgical site infections), the results that they produce are often the same: severe impairments that can dramatically alter one's standard of living.
Have you ever considered if the use of medication by a complete stranger could somehow affect you, as well? Many of those in Providence County that we here at DeLuca and Weizenbaum have worked with in the past may tell you yes based off their own personal experiences.
