According to the Institute of Medicine, preventable medical errors kill an estimated 98,000 people every year at a cost of $29 billion. Because of the nature of the industry, it's important for patient safety that our Rhode Island medical malpractice attorneys are willing to undertake malpractice suits to bolster rather than undermine accountability — no other alternative promotes this kind of ownership and responsibility to the same degree.
At the same time, malpractice personal injury cases can be extremely complicated and are some of the most expensive to undertake. Oftentimes a lawyer or firm advances much of the cost.

One example of our successful results:
Our client went in for surgery to her cervical spine and as a result of the surgeon causing an injury to vertebral artery she did not survive the surgery. We represented her son and the estate, and were able to reach a confidential settlement for the benefit of her son without him ever having to endure a day in court.
