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.
