Woman claims medical malpractice caused a lifetime of pain

For most families in Rhode Island, the birth of a child marks the start of a new exciting path in life. However, mistakes made during the delivery process can often create an unexpected path. For a woman in another state, medical malpractice allegedly resulted in a life path filled with 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. They also have the reasonable expectation that those who hire doctors will go through the proper checks to ensure that a candidate for a position is qualified. Unfortunately, a lawsuit filed in another state claims that the man who allegedly caused a man's death was an unqualified doctor in addition to being mentally unfit.

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 malpractice cases repeat common patterns of negligence

The shocking statistic reported nationwide in recent years, including in Rhode Island, is that medical negligence represents the third highest cause of human fatalities next to heart disease and cancer. That statistic is a powerful counter to those who would further restrict the ability of victimized patients to file medical malpractice claims. When a medical provider falls below the minimal standard of care required of his or her peers in that medical specialty, liability for damages will be attributed to the provider.
