When you or a loved one is admitted to the hospital, you put your trust in the medical personnel, assuming that they will care for you to the best of their ability. Sadly, sometimes things don’t go as you expect. If a hospital’s doctors, nurses, or other health care practitioners make an error, their actions can hurt you, your friends, or your family. If you experience a situation where these professionals don’t do everything in their power to help and care for you, it’s important you speak with one of our lawyers as soon as possible.
A hospital’s mistake may be ruled negligent if it somehow falls below the standard of care expected of a reasonably competent doctor or other health care provider. Also, their action must have led to the unfortunate outcome you or your loved one suffered.
Hospital negligence can occur during any kind of hospital stay. Sometimes even emergency patients or those who are at the hospital for routine procedures can end up in worse condition than when they arrived.
