Just as no two patients will have the same injuries, each surgery may present doctors with a unique situation. A surgical error can occur when a doctor (or medical team) does not provide a patient with adequate care or treatment and commits a preventable mistake during a procedure. This can happen for any number of reasons including inadequate preparation, lack of team communication, fatigue, or the use of drugs or alcohol. Whatever the reason for your injury, our attorneys can help you to seek justice.
Surgical errors can include:
This is far from a comprehensive list of injuries due to surgical errors. Furthermore, not all damages may be immediately apparent; however, it is critical to act as soon as you notice that something is wrong. In Rhode Island, victims may have as little as three years in which to take legal action seeking damages for a surgical error. If you think you may have a claim, our attorneys can help you to discover your legal options.
