Rhode Island Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Understanding Medical Malpractice

Every year, people are injured or killed as a result of medical malpractice. While most doctors take their jobs seriously and provide excellent, responsible medical care, some do not, and when that happens, you or your family can suffer. When a patient receives negligent or inadequate medical care, the results can be catastrophic, affecting not only the patient but their family as well. In cases like these, you can hold health care providers accountable by filing a medical malpractice suit.

Situations that can lead to medical malpractice include:

  • Diagnostic errors: Occurs when a medical professional either fails to diagnose a medical condition or misdiagnoses a medical condition.
  • Surgical errors: Occurs during surgery, and can include situations such as operating on the wrong site, leaving a foreign object inside the patient, or failure to provide reasonable care during the procedure.
  • Anesthesia errors: These can result from giving the incorrect dosage of anesthesia, or failing to adequately monitor oxygen flow to the patient.
  • Medication errors: Occurs when a doctor or other medical professional makes an error in prescribing medication, such as the wrong dosage.
