While many people do not like hospitals, we generally think of them as safe. They are the place we want to be if we are critically ill or injured, are undergoing major operations, or are giving birth. We assume the medical professionals, including doctors, surgeons, nurses, and even administrative staff, will provide a standard level of treatment and care. Unfortunately, this does not always occur – with tragic results.
If you were treated at a hospital only to suffer serious harm as a result, or if you lost a loved one due to a hospital error, Fay Law Group is here to help you. Our Washington DC hospital error lawyers know how to identify hospital malpractice and expose it. We believe in seeking justice for patients who have found themselves in terrible situations due to no fault of their own, and we are here to set things right again.

When it comes to a case involving malpractice and injuries sustained at a hospital, it will be necessary to determine whether the individual who provided substandard care was an employee of the hospital or an independent contractor. Even if the medical professional was an independent contractor, it may be possible for the hospital to be held to blame if there was negligence or wrongdoing regarding the hiring of the individual, failing to discipline or remove the individual after other complaints of malpractice, etc.
Our Washington DC hospital malpractice attorneys will carefully evaluate every aspect of your case to determine fault and how to proceed in such a way as to maximize your compensation. After all, this is the recourse we have to right this terrible wrong. All possible sources must be considered.
