A Rhode Island woman obtained a $1,700,000 settlement for a medical malpractice claim. It turned out that she had stage four (4) cancers after previous doctors told her that recent tests came back negative. Had these results been accurately given to her, she would have been able to manage these cancers far better. d’Oliveira & Associates remained jointly responsible with a Rhode Island medical malpractice lawyer, who obtained this combined settlement for the client.
Attorney Paul d’Oliveira said, “Fortunately this woman survived, however, we have seen far too many cases where doctors and hospitals don’t do their proper due diligence to determine if a person has cancer.”
Medical malpractice lawsuits are among the most serious of all personal injury cases. If the negligence of a health care provider causes you to have a permanent injury, you may have a medical malpractice case. For these cases, it is highly recommended that you do not handle it alone. The insurance company for the healthcare provider will hire experts to try and deny your claim. If you hire a medical malpractice lawyer for your case, they too will hire experts to prove your case and anything else that needs to be done. There are so many complex intricacies to medical malpractice cases that you really should hire a lawyer to represent you.
