Understanding Medical Negligence

Hospital negligence occurs when medical professionals fail to meet accepted standards in delivering care leading to injuries that would have otherwise been avoided. Common examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of illness
  • Childbirth injuries to mother or infant
  • Mistakes with medication dosing or prescriptions
  • Surgery errors and complications
  • Inadequate infection control practices

To build a viable malpractice lawsuit, our lawyers thoroughly investigate what happened and assemble evidence showing that a provider breached their duty of care. When filing a claim or negotiating a settlement, understanding which parties may share liability is also essential.

Potential Defendants

Potential Defendants

There are different individuals and entities who can be held accountable for medical negligence:

  • Doctors, nurses, surgeons, specialists or other practitioners
  • Hospitals, health clinics, urgent care centers
  • Nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, assisted living facilities
  • Medical device manufacturers
  • Diagnostic laboratories

Our goal is to identify all negligent parties as defendants, increasing chances of a favorable outcome.

Proving Liability In medical malpractice lawsuits, our firm strives to demonstrate:

Duty of Care - The patient and defendant had a doctor-patient relationship, meaning there was a duty of care. This existed if the defendant provided requested treatment or gave medical advice that the patient relied upon.

Breach of Duty - The defendant failed to provide care at the level expected of a competent doctor or nurse in their field when treating the type of condition or illness in question. Typically proven by expert testimony.

Injury/Harm - Lapses in the duty of care directly caused significant injury, harm or death to the patient. The damages suffered must be measurable.

Proximate Cause - It is probable that the patient would not have been harmed if proper medical care had been given based on a degree of reasonable medical certainty.

Damages may include considerable medical bills, lost income, reduced lifespan, and pain and suffering. By collecting extensive evidence and consulting with subject matter experts, our lawyers apply legal expertise to prove liability and damages.

You normally have 3 years from the date of injury to file a claim. Exceptions exist in some cases, making a prompt free consultation wise even if harm occurred long ago.

Does reporting a potential claim to a hospital impact my ability to sue?

No. Hospitals encourage internal incident reports to improve care, but it does not affect your legal rights or waive right to litigation.

What if I signed consent forms, can I still pursue damages?

Yes, consent forms don’t free doctors from responsibility for negligent actions that cause harm. Their duty of care still applies.

Will filing a complaint impact my ongoing care at a facility?
