Introduction to Hospital Negligence Claims

Hospital negligence occurs when a medical professional fails to provide an acceptable standard of care, directly causing significant harm. Common examples our Imperial Beach medical malpractice lawyers see include surgical errors, medication mix-ups, improper use of equipment, failure to diagnose serious conditions, not ordering vital tests, childbirth injuries, and more.

Mistakes can happen, but when substandard medical care results in devastating, permanent injury or death, victims may have legal options. By building strong negligence claims, our lawyers have won cases resulting in verdicts and settlements to cover:

  • Exorbitant medical bills
  • Rehabilitation and assistive equipment
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Round-the-clock care

At Moseley Collins Law, we conduct thorough investigations to determine what went wrong and fight for maximum compensation so clients can focus on healing.

Hospital Negligence Cases We Handle

Hospital Negligence Cases We Handle

With four medical experts reviewing every case, our medical malpractice lawyers can identify everything from small oversights to grievous errors. We handle a wide variety of hospital negligence claims, including:

Surgical Errors

Botched operations can cause serious harm. Surgeons may puncture organs, leave foreign objects inside patients, amputate the wrong limb, use unsanitized tools leading to infection, or make other egregious mistakes.

Birth Injuries

When doctors, nurses and hospitals fail to provide an appropriate standard of care during labor and delivery, children can experience devastating birth injuries. These include cerebral palsy, Erb’s or Klumpke’s palsy, hypoxia, nerve damage, and other conditions causing permanent impairment.

Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis

Failing to promptly and correctly diagnose conditions like strokes, heart attacks, infections, cancers or birth defects can rob patients of the opportunity for effective early treatment. Delayed diagnosis often leads to advancement of illnesses.

Medication Errors

Incorrect drug doses, patient mix-ups, contraindicated prescriptions can cause harmful drug interactions and death in extreme cases. Hospitals also spread infections through reused needles, unsanitized equipment and improper hygiene.

Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

Nursing homes have a duty to keep patients safe from physical, emotional and sexual abuse. They must also provide adequate nutrition, hydration, hygiene, medication management, mobility assistance, medical care and supervision. Failure to do so can cause negligence claims.

We also represent clients injured by anesthesia errors, emergency room mistakes, ICU negligence, medical device defects and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked QuestionsDo I have a valid medical malpractice case?

You may if negligence caused significant injuries or death. By ordering medical records, our lawyers build timelines to analyze what went wrong at each step of care. An initial consultation helps determine if you have grounds to sue.

How much money can I recover after medical negligence?

Every case value depends on injury severity, economic damages (medical bills, lost income) and noneconomic damages. Our record settlements range from hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars. Maximum compensation helps our clients move forward.

How long do I have to file a malpractice claim?

California statutes of limitations give victims 1 year to sue once evidence shows negligence caused the injury - but cases against public entities allow just 6 months. Act now, evidence disappears.

Will filing a malpractice claim hurt my relationship with my doctor?

Understandably that’s a common concern, but not typically the outcome. Reputable lawyers handle cases professionally, focusing claims on policymakers rather than individual doctors. But quality care comes first.
