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 personal injury attorneys possess more than 150 years of collective experience which they can bring to your case.
