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 negligence. 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 of 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 negligence attorneys can investigate the precise nature of your accident to help you determine if negligence was involved.
Examples of hospital negligence can include:
- Inadequate or improperly trained staff
- Improperly maintained medical equipment
- Slip and fall injuries
- Improper hiring techniques and practices
- Emergency room errors
Not every case will have legal grounds for negligence, 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 be affiliated in some way. Secondly, the negligent actions of the hospital must have directly led 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 Columbus medical negligence attorneys can help you to understand if you have a case.
Compensation for Victims of Medical Negligence
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 injury occurs, hospitals must be held accountable for their actions. If you suspect that your injuries were the direct cause of hospital negligence, the attorneys at Rourke & Blumenthal want to hear your story. Together, our hospital negligence attorneys possess more than 150 years of collective experience which they can bring to your case.

Wonderful firm! We have worked with other attorneys in the past and Mike and Tim blew us away. If you have a brain injury in the State of Ohio, you NEED attorneys who are experienced in TBI cases, not just motor vehicle accidents or other personal injury matters. It makes a huge difference having an attorney who understands the medical, emotional, and financial issues a family suffers after a TBI. They are professional, compassionate, and great communicators. I would recommend this office to anyone.- Suzanne
Attorney Jon Stoudt is the best lawyer I've ever worked with. He did everything he could to help me. From the start, Jon was very responsive and always explained everything in terms I could easily understand. Jon's staff was also kind and responsive. I highly recommend Jon and would use him again in the future. Several months after being done with my case, another lawyer, handling a different part of the case, commented on how well Jon handled my civil suit.- Jillian
From the very beginning and to the very end of a long process, Mr. Rourke and his team were extremely compassionate, knowledgeable and friendly. I found them to be honest and easy to communicate with, day or night, weekday or weekend. Mr. Rourke was always professional but at the same time made you feel important and took as much time that was needed to explain the many steps in this process. Everyone of his team were very respectful and caring of everyone in my family involved in our case. I will have an admiration for Mr. Rourke and his team for the remainder of my life.- Kelly
Jonathan Stoudt gave us excellent counsel during our time with him.- Cathy
Mr Timothy Mahler represented me after a personal injury auto accident. He was professional, knowledgeable, empathetic and experienced. I always felt that he had my best interests as the top priority. I was relieved from the intricate and time-consuming tasks related to the accident, free to focus on healing and recovery. He managed the complicated insurance and settlement to the best outcome. His team always treated me with respect. I would highly recommend Mr Mahler and his team. Thank you.- Cathy B.
I suffered physical injuries and a concussion from an auto accident in December of 2020. The team, from receptionist to attorneys, were nothing less than stellar, professional, kind, and hard working. The accident and aftermath were extremely stressful; but the Rourkes, Michael Senior and Michael Junior, helped me navigate the process while I focused on healing. For me, recovery from the accident was the most important part of the process. While I worked on recovering, Rourke and Blumenthal worked on negotiating a fantastic settlement for me. I will forever be grateful for their help!- Maggie S.
