When hospitals fail to meet the standard of care and harm occurs, they can be held financially accountable. This responsibility extends to their employed physicians, nurses, technicians, and other staff. Common examples of hospital negligence include:
- Misdiagnosing or delaying diagnosis of a serious medical condition
- Medication errors and pharmacy mix-ups
- Surgical errors and procedurally-related injuries
- Discharging a patient prematurely
- Failure to prevent infections and bedsores
If substandard treatment from a hospital, doctor or nurse caused you significant harm, you have legal rights to pursue compensation.
Our lawyers handle a wide range of hospital negligence cases involving:
- Emergency room errors
- Anesthesia mistakes
- Childbirth injuries
- Preventable infections
- Improper discharge planning
- Failure to accurately interpret test results
- Reckless resident supervision
We also represent victims of nursing home malpractice who suffer pressure injuries, dehydration, malnutrition, infections, and other complications when staff fail to follow physician orders, ignore standard protocols, or make healthcare decisions that contradict medical chart documentation for a patient's underlying conditions.

Finding the right experts for specific types of medical negligence can make or break a case.Addressing Alternate Arguments
