Overview of Hospital Negligence

Hospital negligence occurs when a hospital fails to provide an acceptable standard of care, resulting in patient injury or death. This can happen many different ways, such as:

  • Misdiagnosis due to emergency room errors
  • Surgical mistakes and operating room errors
  • Improperly dispensed medication or anesthesia
  • Discharging a patient too soon
  • Failure to prevent infections and bedsores
  • Use of broken medical equipment

When hospitals fail to uphold good practices, patients can suffer greatly. Medical negligence is the 3rd highest cause of death in the United States after heart disease and cancer.

Steps to Take After Medical Negligence Occurs

Steps to Take After Medical Negligence Occurs

If you suspect you are the victim of medical negligence, it is important to act fast to preserve evidence. Consider taking these steps:

1. Request Your Medical Records

Formally request copies of your full medical file from the hospital or healthcare facility. This creates a valuable paper trail.

2. Speak to Witnesses

If other staff, patients or visitors witnessed mistakes with your care, get their formal statements in writing immediately while details are still fresh.

3. Take Photos

Catalog any visible injuries, bruising or hospital conditions with date-stamped photos.

4. Seek Second Opinions

Consult other independent specialists who can assess your situation and confirm any potential misdiagnoses or subpar treatment.

5. Call a Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Contact an experienced hospital negligence law firm to start building your case. Critical deadlines and statute of limitations apply.

Damages Available in Medical Malpractice Cases

If you or a loved one experienced harm due to a healthcare provider's negligence, filing a medical malpractice lawsuit may help you secure compensation for the immense hardships caused. There are different types of damages victims can recover if their case is successful.

Economic Damages

Economic damages in malpractice cases aim to financially compensate injured victims and families for tangible monetary losses tied to a provider's mistakes.

Medical Expenses

This covers all hospital stays, surgeries, treatments, medications, devices and ongoing care required to manage health conditions directly resulting from the incident. Both past and projected future medical costs can be claimed.

Lost Income

Victims who couldn't work for a period or had lifetime earning capacity reduced due to disability or impairment may claim these lost wages. Documentation is required.

Loss of Services

If injuries prohibit completing essential household tasks, compensation for hiring outside help for childcare, cleaning, transportation and more may be warranted.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic categories focus on harder-to-quantify damages from the trauma, grief and suffering tied to malpractice.

Pain and Suffering

Financial compensation for the physical pain, emotional distress, agony, inconvenience and mental anguish suffered.

Loss of Consortium/Companionship

If negligence resulted in death or permanent bedridden status, families can potentially seek damages for loss of companionship. This helps replace advice, guidance, affection, intimacy and comfort.

Punitive damages may also be pursued in cases of proven gross negligence or misconduct to punish providers. An experienced medical malpractice lawyer can help victims and grieving loved ones analyze and accurately categorize both economic and non-economic damages to seek fair compensation.
