Hospital Negligence

Physician and hospital negligence affect millions of patients every year. Hospitals are responsible for hiring and overseeing qualified medical professionals who will care for patients according to acceptable standards of care. If a doctor, nurse, or other hospital staff member fails to exercise the care necessary to avoid needless patient injury, the hospital may be liable for medical malpractice.

Let our experienced medical malpractice attorneys help you protect your rights.

Physician negligence and hospital negligence are related forms of negligence that affect millions of patients every year.

Physician negligence can take many forms and occur under many different circumstances. Common forms of physician negligence include anesthesia errors, misdiagnoses of or failure to diagnose a condition, prescription errors, surgical errors, and birth injury (e.g., cerebral palsy).

Hospitals bear the responsibility of hiring and overseeing qualified medical professionals who will care for patients according to acceptable standards of care. When a doctor, nurse, technician, or other hospital staff member fails to exercise the care necessary to avoid needless patient injury, the hospital may be liable for medical malpractice.

Common hospital mistakes include: failure to consult with a specialist, failure to monitor a patient, failure to order proper diagnostic tests, failure to stabilize a patient, failure to sufficiently staff the hospital, improper use of medical device equipment, laboratory delays in processing specimens or loss of specimens, poorly equipped facilities, preventable infection or contamination, procedures done without patient consent or when not necessary, prescription errors, and use of defective medical devices.

When you’re injured by medical malpractice, the effects can alter your life and the lives of your family. If you’ve been badly injured, your life will never be the same again. Siegfried and Jensen’s medical malpractice attorneys understand. We can help you protect your rights and get what you deserve so you can rebuild your life and move forward.

 

You Need An Attorney Who Will Fight For You And Your Family

Medical Malpractice lawsuits are about keeping families and communities safe.

We understand that ill and injured patients cannot always be successfully treated, so when physicians and hospital staff cannot successfully treat a patient, the failure is not necessarily grounds for a malpractice claim. When malpractice has occurred, however, victims have a right to monetary compensation (a settlement) for medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, diminished earning capacity, lost income, and other costs and losses.

Lawsuits that hold physicians and hospitals accountable for their negligence do more than help victims recover their lives —they help keep our families and our communities safe by making sure that the medical care we all receive meets minimal quality standards.

Help protect your family and your community. Hold wrongdoers accountable for their negligence.
