The Rhode Island law requires an injured party to seek compensation due to Medical Malpractice to file their claim within 3 years of the occurrence
. An exception is made when someone finds out later of the injury, in which case they have 3 years from the date of discovery to file.
The types of financial compensation you are legally able to seek include medical expenses, both present and future, loss of wages, and pain and suffering. There is no limit on the financial damages you can receive in compensation.
There is a requirement of expert testimony by a person with education and expertise in the medical field where the malpractice is alleged.
There are 4 legal elements to this type of claim. A duty that is owed to a patient, the duty is breached by a medical practitioner, that specific breach of duty caused injury, and damages were incurred as a result of the injury. A simple example would be a doctor's obligation to remove a limb, they remove the wrong limb, the patient loses the wrong limb and suffers permanent damages as a result.
Injuries suffered due to misdiagnosis, and medical error are complex and require a high degree of legal skill to prove liability. However they commonly occur at almost all hospitals, clinics and medical facilities. Life altering injuries and debilitating medical conditions can occur as a result of misdiagnosis or practitioner error.
