Examples of Hospital Negligence

The hospitals provide quality care that saves lives every day, but even the most prestigious healthcare facilities can experience medical errors resulting in devastating patient injuries or death. As medical malpractice lawyers handling cases nationwide for over 40 years, we have seen major hospital systems make inexcusable mistakes including:

  • Improper administration, dosing, or prescription of medication
  • Misinterpretation of imaging tests, pathology results, and diagnostic data
  • Operating on or altering the wrong anatomy
  • Failure to rapidly diagnose and treat conditions such as strokes, heart attacks, infections, and bleeding
  • Not monitoring patients appropriately post-operatively
  • Discharging patients prematurely
  • Birth injuries due to OBGYN or nursing negligence

These errors may happen for many reasons - overworked staff, outdated technology, poor internal communication - but whatever the cause, we fight to hold all negligent parties fully accountable.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions1. Do I have a case if a doctor makes a mistake but I'm expected to fully recover?

You may still have a medical malpractice case even if you eventually recover. However, our firm focuses specifically on situations where errors lead to permanent, life-changing injuries requiring intensive medical care. For less severe cases, we can refer you to trusted associates.

2. How can you determine if my situation was actually malpractice and not just an accident?

By thoroughly investigating your records, we identify deviations from standards of care and assemble medical experts to analyze if such deviations directly caused preventable harm. Their objective findings separate accidents from negligence.

3. How long do I have to file a malpractice lawsuit after medical injury?

In California, you normally have 1 year from the date of discovery to file a claim - less for public entities. However, state laws contain exceptions extending limits when evidence was fraudulently concealed. We advise on latest filing times.

4. Is proving emotional distress damages possible?

Yes, compensation can include emotional distress stemming directly from physical harm due to medical negligence. Our lawyers are skilled at presenting evidence meeting legal thresholds for claiming such non-economic damages.

5. Will pursuing legal action negatively impact my ongoing care?

Not typically, as long as initial recovery remains the priority and experiences with subsequent providers are objective versus subjective assessments. Our discreet approach prevents any retaliation or bias.

Please feel free to reach out with any other questions. As dedicated medical malpractice lawyers, we are happy to discuss the legal process related to medical negligence in a free, no-obligation consultation - we want people to understand all their options after such tragic, preventable harm occurs.
