Passionate, Proven Rhode Island Representation

Strong Representation For Medical Malpractice Claims

At Kiernan, Plunkett & Redihan, LLP, our Providence medical malpractice attorneys represent people who have suffered severe and traumatic injury, or death, arising from medical negligence. Claims for medical malpractice are some of the most challenging types of claims to press and frequently require the expenditure of significant costs to build an effective case. Our attorneys will take the time to discuss all of the pertinent issues that must be considered when contemplating a claim for medical malpractice.

Handling All Types Of Claims

Our lawyers have extensive experience handling medical malpractice claims for clients in Providence, throughout Rhode Island and across Southern New England. We are prepared to handle complex claims involving catastrophic injuries, medical setbacks and even wrongful death.

Among the many types of medical negligence claims we handle are those arising from:

  • Surgical errors: Errors in the operating room include wrong-site surgery, anesthesia errors and leaving instruments behind inside the patient. Surgical errors may include instances of malpractice occurring during surgery or during surgery prep or post-op recovery.
  • Medication errors: Patients can suffer severe trauma when too much, too little or the wrong kind of medication is administered. Medication errors also occur when medical professionals administer medicine without regard to harmful reactions with other medicines the patient is taking, or harmful reactions with certain types of food.
  • Birth injuries: Our attorneys handle obstetrician malpractice claims and other birth injury cases arising from trauma suffered by the infant or the mother. Birth injuries include hypoxia (lack of oxygen to the brain), shoulder dystocia, forceps injuries and other medical mistakes by delivery room personnel.

Medical malpractice claims are very complex and fact-specific, and require ample documented evidence of negligence and of damages suffered by the patient. These claims should be handled by experienced attorneys who know how to successfully advance their clients’ rights in and out of court.
