Rhode Island Medical Malpractice Lawyers Protecting Your Rights

Medical malpractice is the legal area that covers negligence and careless mistakes by doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, orderlies and other medical and healthcare professionals and staff. Under Rhode Island law, you may be compensated for the medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other losses you’ve endured as the result of a medical error.

At Gemma Law Associates, Inc., our medical malpractice attorneys represent clients in cases involving:

  • Birth Injury (including mistakes during labor or delivery)
  • Misdiagnosis of symptoms
  • Cerebral Palsy (insufficient oxygen or physical trauma to a baby’s brain resulting in irreversible neuromuscular deficiencies)
  • Failure to order necessary tests, such as lab work
  • Surgical Error (often caused by communication breakdowns)
  • Incorrect analysis or understanding of test or lab results
  • Erb’s Palsy (injury to the brachial plexus resulting in paralysis in the shoulders and arms)
  • Giving the patient the wrong medication or an inappropriate dosage
  • Inadequate or incorrect anesthesia medications
  • Nursing Home Abuse.

A serious medical error can happen in an instant, but it may have consequences that last a lifetime. Proving medical negligence or malpractice may require a lengthy investigation. Qualified medical witnesses are required to establish that the medical practitioner’s conduct failed to meet accepted standards of care. Injured patients may also be unaware of all aspects of their medical care, so obtaining documentation of all procedures, reports and medicines is vital. Finally, a thorough understanding of Rhode Island law and its application to malpractice cases is essential.

In any case of a serious injury or death occurring while in the care of a medical professional, it is important to have the case reviewed as soon as possible by an experienced Rhode Island medical malpractice attorney.
