Hospital Negligence Lawyers

Seek Compensation for Hospital Negligence

Doctors and hospitals and their insurance companies have worked hard to make you afraid to see if your rights have been violated. We help clients feel the strength that they need to make their hospital negligence claims and confront those that may have seriously injured you or your family member.

Harvard University performed the most comprehensive study ever done on the frequency of medical negligence in the United States in 2006. Shockingly, the hospital negligence statistics revealed that as many as 120,000 people die each year as the result of medical errors committed in hospitals. In fact, of all medical malpractice claims, 97 percent involved a legitimate medical injury, with 80 percent of those involving major disability or death. Whether treated in a nursing home, hospital, doctor or dentist’s office, many patients are unaware that the bad result they have experienced may be the due to medical negligence.

Hospital malpractice errors can occur in many scenarios such as;

  • Emergency Room failure to accurately and promptly treat or diagnose
  • A radiologist does not properly read an x-ray, Ct, MRI or mammogram
  • A general practitioner doesn’t listen to the patient and investigate the complaints
  • Failure to document, reference or keep track of medical records
  • Hospital or nursing staff is too overworked to react to a patient’s immediate need
  • Improperly administering wrong type or dose of medication
  • Using unsterilized or defective equipment
  • Surgical errors, such as incision errors or not removing medical instruments
  • A doctor performs a service outside of his or her expertise.

These are just a few examples of hospital negligence that can lead to serious or debilitating brain injuries, infant injury, paralysis, or chronic disorders. It is every patient’s right to receive adequate care, and lawsuits are meant to protect the public  by holding hospitals and medical professionals accountable for negligence. Some victims often question whether their hospital negligence claim would be perceived as “frivolous”  and if it would hurt the medical field by increasing insurance rates. William Sage of Harvard, (co-author of the Harvard study) stated that, “the major problem out there is medical errors that are not compensated, rather than frivolous claims that are compensated.” Suing a hospital for negligence can get you the money you need for recovery and it is a fact that more people suffer serious medical injury without receiving compensation than there are people who make false claims against hospitals and medical professionals.
