Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice

Personal Injury and Wrongful Death

At Bianchi Brouillard Sousa & O'Connell, P.C., we represent individuals in a wide range of personal injury claims, such as automobile accidents, wrongful death, medical malpractice, product liability, pharmaceutical negligence, prescription drug injury, dog bites, and slip and falls.  Our goal is to resolve your claim as quickly as possible without compromising the value of your claim.  Although many claims are settled, we carefully and strategically prepare each client’s case through every phase as if the case is going to trial.  We offer contingent fee arrangements to our clients, which means you do not pay a fee unless we are successful on your behalf.

Medical Malpractice

We all look to and trust health care professionals to competently care for us when we are sick or injured.  When medical providers fail to meet their professional obligations, patients can suffer serious injury or death.  These injuries can be more than just painful and debilitating, they can be financially and emotionally devastating for the patient and their family.  If you or a loved one’s trust in a health care professional has been broken, please call us to arrange a free consultation to discuss your case.

Product Liability

We help people who have been injured by a defective or faulty product.  Whether you were the product user or just an unfortunate bystander, you may have certain legal rights if you were injured by an unreasonably dangerous or defective product.  Some examples of the product liability cases we handle involve power tools, construction equipment, medical devices, prescription drugs, watercraft, playground equipment, helmets and protective equipment, toys, and swimming pools.

Pharmaceutical Negligence

Pharmaceutical companies are responsible for injuries and illnesses caused by their prescription drug products.  Occasionally, prescription drugs are found to cause severe injuries or death.  Pharmacies have an obligation to properly fill and dispense patient prescriptions.  Sometimes pharmacies fill prescriptions incorrectly or fail to check whether the prescribed medication may counter-act with another prescription the patient is taking.  Unfortunately, these errors can result in unnecessary injury, illness, or death.

Nursing Home Negligence

The decision to place a loved one in a nursing home is usually a very difficult one.  The emotions surrounding this decision are compounded when a family member or friend is injured while staying at a nursing home.  Unfortunately, many nursing home injuries are preventable.  The patients normally arrive with detailed instructions from doctors and hospitals advising the nursing home how to effectively treat the patient.  When nursing homes and their staff deviate from these instructions, injuries may occur.
