Attorney for Victims of Hospital Errors

Not all medical malpractice cases involve mistakes during surgery, childbirth or other situations where you can point to a single error and prove that it violated a recognized standard of care. Many claims arise instead under less spectacular circumstances involving poor communication or plain neglect on the part of one or several medical professionals, including nurses and hospital staff.

At the early stages of a case review, our attorneys and medical experts often find evidence of medical malpractice without necessarily identifying with certainty which doctor, nurse or hospital technician was responsible for the error. As the case develops, different defendants might blame one another for the patient's injuries or death. It's our job to develop and present the case for liability against one or more specific defendants as our investigation brings the facts into focus.

Examples of cases where the hospital itself might bear the greatest responsibility for errors by nurses or other employees include injuries caused by:

  • Failure to follow or misinterpretation of physicians' instructions
  • Failure to protect against known risks or complications following surgery
  • Errors in medication or nutrition during hospitalization
  • Hospital acquired infections
  • Failure to monitor patient vital signs
  • Failure to note or report changes in a patient's condition
  • Uterine or gynecologic morcellators and the spread of uterine cancer
  • Delay in diagnosis in intestinal injury
