Holding Health Care Providers
Accountable for Poor Patient Care
Doctors and other licensed health care providers are not expected to be perfect, to know everything, to be able to anticipate every potential complication or to be able to fix every problem.
While lawyers are often blamed for the high cost of medical care in this country, and derided for expecting doctors to be infallible — the vast majority of medical malpractice lawsuits are not filed because a doctor or a nurse or an anesthesiologist didn't work a miracle. They are filed because of obvious mistakes and deviations from the standards of care established by similar providers in the medical community at-large.
When overworked, lawyers are just as likely to do a poor job for their clients as doctors are. As a sole practitioner who is not part of a large "litigation machine" — I am free to limit my practice to the number of cases I can reasonably handle. In your medical malpractice case, that alone can have a large impact on the result. I offer free initial consultations and can be reached online, or by phone in either Connecticut or Rhode Island.
Medical Malpractice Claims in Connecticut and Rhode Island
In my practice as an attorney, I have handled cases involving failures to diagnose cancer, the misdiagnosis of heart attacks and strokes, medication mistakes, delivery room errors and many other types of health care malpractice. I work with doctors and specialists to evaluate my clients' medical records. More importantly, especially for Connecticut cases, I work with doctors who are willing to testify against other health care providers when they believe malpractice has occurred.
I would also like to emphasize how important it is for you to contact an attorney right away if you suspect that medical malpractice has occurred. There are two reasons for this. First, you may have only a limited amount of time in which to file a claim. Second, the longer you wait — the greater the chance that important evidence will be lost.
