Rhode Island Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Helping People Injured by Negligent Care
Doctors, nurses, radiologists, and other health care professionals are supposed to follow standard treatment protocols when treating patients. When certain tests aren’t requested, when a patient’s history isn’t reviewed, when vital signs or fetal monitor strips aren’t checked, doctors can be held liable for injuries and fatalities that occur as a result. At the Law Offices of Richard C. Tallo, I consult medical experts, nurses, radiologists, and other professionals in reviewing the actions and decisions of doctors. I expose departures from established standard treatment protocols and best practices that cause miscommunication and errors on the part of health care professionals.
When doctors and nursing home workers make mistakes, those mistakes can have serious consequences. Maybe your spinal cord was injured during back surgery. Maybe your cancer got worse because your doctor misdiagnosed it. Maybe your parent fell in the shower because nobody was there to escort him or her.
If you’ve been seriously injured or lost a family member due to negligence on the part of a doctor, contact Rhode Island medical malpractice attorney Richard C. Tallo today to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case. I will charge no attorneys’ fees unless I am successful at helping you recover for your injuries.
Seeking Compensation for Medical Malpractice
Doctors, hospitals, and other medical professionals and institutions have professional standards of care they must follow when providing medical treatment to patients. When they fail to do so, their mistakes can have serious consequences, including:
- Erb’s palsy
- Cerebral palsy
- Shoulder dystocia
- Abrupted placenta
- Fetal acidosis
- Perforated bowel
- Removal of wrong organ
- Cardiac ablation errors
Failure to diagnose illnesses
- Heart attack
Failure to diagnose cancer
- Rectal cancer
- Breast cancer
- Prostrate cancer
- Skin cancer
When a doctor’s negligence can be proven to be the cause of a life-altering injury to a patient, that doctor can be held liable for medical malpractice. Not every medical injury is caused by malpractice, so it is necessary to gather evidence as soon as possible.
