What is Hospital Negligence?
Many people may be under the impression that only hospital staff such as
doctors and nurses may be liable for damages due to
medical malpractice. The truth is that hospitals, like other medical providers, have a duty
of care to each patient that comes through its doors. When an injury is
the direct result from a negligent action, the hospital may be held legally
responsible. This can occur for a number of reasons such as when legally
mandated regulations are not obeyed. Our hospital malpractice attorneys
can investigate the precise nature of your accident to help you determine
if negligence was involved.
Examples of hospital malpractice can include:
Not every case will have legal grounds for malpractice and a successful
claim will need to demonstrate several factors. First, an individual must
be an actual patient of the hospital in which they received the injury
or affiliated in some way. Secondly, the negligent actions of the hospital
must have led directly to the injury in question. As patients who are
seeking medical treatment may already have an injury, individuals must
be able to prove a causal connection. Injury claims can be tremendously
complicated and our personal injury attorneys can help you to understand
if you have a case.
Compensation for Victims of Medical Malpractice
When you are sick or injured, you place your trust in hospitals to demonstrate
a duty of care for your treatment. When that trust is betrayed and an

the attorneys at Rourke and Blumenthal want to hear your story. Together,
