Medical/Hospital Malpractice
Patients rely on medical professionals and hospitals to provide competent care and healing. It is particularly distressing, therefore, when a case of medical neglect or error results in patient injury. In addition to suffering the immediate injury, victims may find themselves faced with overwhelming medical bills, lasting emotional pain, and in some cases, permanent disability. For the past 20 years, Wistow, Sheehan & Loveley has championed the rights of individuals and families who have been injured by physician and hospital mistakes. Particularly in cases of birth injury, death or other catastrophic injury, the firm has achieved verdicts and settlements that are among the highest in Rhode Island and New England. If you or a loved one has experienced injury as a result of medical malpractice, please contact Wistow, Sheehan & Loveley today.

Vehicle-Related Injuries
Vehicle drivers must obey traffic laws meant to ensure public safety. Aggressive and distracted drivers, however, often disregard these laws, causing accident and injury. Speeding, cell phone use, and substance abuse are all examples of behaviors that can seriously endanger the public. Wistow, Sheehan & Loveley has extensive experience handling cases of serious injury or death resulting from automobile, boating and recreational vehicle accidents. Prosecution of these cases involves engagement of experts to reconstruct the accidents and prove the full extent of physical, mental and economic injuries. If you have been injured in a vehicular accident, Wistow, Sheehan & Loveley may be able to help you receive compensation. Please contact our firm today.

Product Liability
Product manufacturers must ensure that the products they sell to consumers are neither defective nor dangerous. If a product - being used according to its manufactured purpose - injures a consumer, the manufacturer (and possibly the retailer and others) can be held liable. From automobiles, to printing presses, to dangerous drugs, Wistow, Sheehan & Loveley has been at the forefront of protecting the rights of persons injured by products. If you or a loved one has suffered injury due to a defective or dangerous product - whether on the job, in the home or during recreation - attorneys from the firm can investigate the merits of a claim based upon defective design, construction or inadequate warning. Please contact us today for more information.

One such case resulted in a million-dollar verdict against a major toy manufacturer for trade secret theft.

Commercial Litigation
Many businesses will, at some point, find themselves in need of legal counsel or representation. Dealing with issues of fraud, bad faith, or contract dispute can be complicated and difficult to navigate alone. Over the past 20 years, Wistow, Sheehan & Loveley has earned a reputation for helping businesses in the areas of insurance contract disputes, insurance bad faith, commercial fraud, breach of contract, and property disputes. Whether such cases are handled on a contingent, hourly, or mixed contingent-hourly fee basis depends upon the facts of each case.

Civil Rights / Employment Discrimination
Discrimination against an employee on the basis of ethnicity, gender, national origin, age, creed, or sexual orientation is a serious workplace offense. If, for example, an older employee is let go from her job solely on the basis of her age, this may be grounds for wrongful termination. Wistow, Sheehan & Loveley has successfully litigated numerous employment-related cases involving sex discrimination, age discrimination and police brutality. One such case resulted in a $600,000 settlement for a victim of a police beating in a local community. If you feel you have been a victim of employment-related discrimination, please contact Wistow, Sheehan & Loveley today.

Social Worker / Adoption Malpractice
Adopting a child is a life-changing decision and the process can often be time-consuming and fraught with emotion. Expectant parents need to rest assured that adoption authorities have given them all the information necessary to their decision. If crucial pieces, such as details about a child's physical or mental health, are withheld, serious injury and suffering can result for both parents and child. Wistow, Sheehan & Loveley is a national leader in the area of adoption malpractice, having obtained the largest ever jury verdict in the United States ($3.8 million) for an adoption malpractice case and has settled others for more than $1 million each. If you or a loved one has been the victim of adoption malpractice, Wistow, Sheehan & Loveley may be able to help. Please contact us today.
