Insurance Companies Don't Play Fair. Don't Do This Alone.

Hospital Negligence

No fee unless we win
we work hard for you

Hospitals must maintain an appropriate standard of care to ensure the safety of their patients. If the hospital fails to do so, they may be held liable for injuries caused by employees. Below is an overview of personal injury law and how it pertains to hospital negligence. If you or someone you love has been injured due to hospital negligence or malpractice, it may be beneficial to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney for advice.

Who Is Liable?

In most instances, hospitals are responsible for supervising employees and ensuring patient safety. If you are injured due to the negligence of a hospital employee, they are generally liable for your injuries. These employees typically include:

  • Nurses
  • Patient Care Assistants
  • Medical Technicians

The above employees are usually employed by the hospital in which they work. If a patient is hurt due to a nurse’s mistake, the hospital is typically responsible. However, not all people who work in hospitals are hospital employees. Doctors, anesthesiologists and other medical professionals may be independent contractors and not regular hospital employees. Determining if the hospital or an individual doctor or other medical professional is responsible for your injuries depends on several factors. For this reason, it is best to speak with a personal injury lawyer for advice, to be sure the lawsuit is filed correctly.

Injuries

Some hospitals have excellent safety measures in place to keep patients from suffering injury. However, not all hospitals maintain high safety levels. Recent studies have shown that over 400,000 people are injured ever year in hospitals from nurse error, infections and accidents. Some of the most common hospital injuries include:

  • Falls
  • Medication Errors
  • Employees Not Following Doctors Orders
  • Unsanitary Conditions And Practices
  • Operating Equipment Without Proper Training

These are just a few injuries that occur in hospitals every day in the United States. If you are unsure if your injury is the result of hospital negligence, speak with an attorney for advice.

Damages

If you have been injured due to hospital negligence, you may be able to obtain a settlement for your injuries and medical expenses. Some damages the court may award you if you prove your case include:

  • Hospital Bills
  • Doctor Fees
  • Emotional Distress
  • Pain And Suffering
  • Lost Wages
  • Future Lost Wages If You Are Disabled

How An Attorney Can Help You

Hiring a personal injury attorney may help you obtain a settlement for your injuries. It is very important for you to have legal representation because you can be certain the hospital will have experienced attorneys protecting their interests. An attorney may help you by:

  • Gathering Evidence To Support Your Claim
  • Speaking To Medical Experts
  • Negotiating A Settlement With The Hospitals Insurance Company
  • Filing Court Documents
  • Representing You At Trial

Contact a personal injury attorney today if you have been injured due to hospital negligence. During an initial consultation, your attorney will examine the facts in your case and let you know how to move ahead with a lawsuit. Having an experienced attorney may help you obtain a fair settlement for the injuries you or a loved one suffered in a negligent medical facility.
