Recently, d’Oliveira & Associates assisted a Rhode Island woman in obtaining a $2,150,000 settlement for a medical malpractice claim after her cancer went misdiagnosed for two years. Her primary care physician was notified that the client was suffering certain cancer symptoms, though he did not test for cancer. Two years later, a new doctor biopsied the client and confirmed that she had stage 4 cancer. Had the cancer been detected upon first notice, she would have been able to seek treatment earlier and manage the cancer better. Throughout the case, d’Oliveira & Associates remained jointly and severally responsible with a Rhode Island medical malpractice lawyer, who was able to obtain this settlement for the client.
