Rhode Island Pediatric Negligence

Pediatric Medicine deals with the care of infants and children.  Pediatric treatment is a very specialized and important area, especially when a young life is jeopardized by negligence.  A Rhode Island Pediatrician’sfailure to make an accurate diagnosis, failure to adequately test and a failure to properly treat infants and children are just a few of the areas of pediatric negligence.

When a child suffers a preventable life-long disability or a wrongful death because of a medical mistake, the entire family suffers emotional trauma. Some of the questions which naturally arise are:  How did this happen and why?  In the case of a disability, what resources will be necessary now and in the future to care for the child?  Talk to our experienced staff about what actions you should take.
