Holding Medical Professionals Accountable
When we seek medical treatment, we expect to be in a better place than where we started from, not worse for the wear. Unfortunately, when medical professionals fail to follow the standard duty of care while treating their patients, serious harm can occur. Medical malpractice claims are extremely complex, and seeking help from a lawyer who has experience handling these types of cases is essential.
At the Rhode Island law firm of Lynch & Pine, our attorneys are dedicated to helping victims of medical negligence and their family members pursue the financial compensation they deserve. Call us at 401-680-0921 for a free consultation.
We Handle A Wide Range Of Malpractice Claims
We help people who have suffered harm from all types of malpractice, including claims involving:
Failure to diagnose and misdiagnosis: When it comes to treating certain ailments, time can be of the essence. A diagnosis that is made in error or missed entirely can cause great harm. These types of claims can be difficult to prove, which is why retaining skilled legal counsel is crucial.
Surgical errors: Leaving medical tools and sponges inside the body. Operating on the wrong part of the body. Removing the wrong limb. These situations may sound unbelievable; however, surgical mistakes are more common than you may think. We can help you recover the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled.
Errors involving prescription drugs: Prescription drug mix-ups and filling the wrong prescription can result in serious injuries. In addition, if a prescribing physician negligently prescribes a certain medication, serious problems may occur. We can help if you believe that you or a loved one has suffered due to prescription medication errors.
Birth injuries and trauma: Malpractice during labor and delivery can harm both the mother and the child. Erb’s palsy, cerebral palsy and shoulder dystocia are some of the more common injuries suffered by infants as the result of negligence. Failure to monitor the mother’s vital signs can have tragic consequences. We are committed to ensuring all responsible parties are held accountable.
