WAS INJURY DUE TO HOSPITAL NEGLIGENCE?
Just because you experienced a bad outcome following admission to a hospital does not necessarily mean that anyone was negligent. The hospital staff can do everything they are supposed to do, and the patient can still suffer a serious injury or die. However, if the hospital failed to meet the standard of care in your case, and you were injured as a result, you may have the right to seek compensation for the losses you have suffered.
The following are examples of injuries that may be due to failure by the hospital to meet the standard of care:
- Hospital-acquired infections
- Surgery mistakes
- Failure to monitor a patient
- Failure to consult a patient’s medical history
- Failure to order appropriate lab tests
- Laboratory errors
- Nursing errors
- Failure to maintain catheters
- In-hospital prescription drug errors
- Slip-and-fall accidents
Over the past 30 years, our lawyers have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for people who have been injured due to the negligence of medical providers.
