What is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider fails to provide a patient with the appropriate standard of care, and the patient is injured as a result. The standard of care refers to the level of care that a reasonably competent healthcare provider with a similar background would provide to a patient in the same situation.

There are many types of errors that can occur in a healthcare setting, including:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Prescription errors
  • Surgical errors
  • Birth injuries
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Emergency room errors
  • Failure to treat
  • Medical product liability
  • Failure to warn

How to Prove Medical Malpractice

Proving that you were the victim of medical malpractice is not easy. You will need to provide evidence that shows that the healthcare provider failed to provide you with the appropriate standard of care and that you were injured as a result.

To prove that you were the victim of medical malpractice, you will need to show:

  • You were owed a duty of care: You must show that you had a doctor-patient relationship with the healthcare provider and that the healthcare provider had a duty to provide you with a certain standard of care.
  • The healthcare provider breached the duty of care: You must show that the healthcare provider failed to provide you with the appropriate standard of care. This generally requires expert testimony from a medical professional who practices in the same field as the at-fault healthcare provider.
  • You were injured as a result: You must show that you were injured and that the injury was caused by the healthcare provider’s negligence. You must also show that the injury caused you to suffer damages.

It is important to note that Rhode Island has a three-year statute of limitations for medical malpractice cases.
