What To Know About Hospitals And Malpractice
Medical negligence in hospitals, emergency rooms and urgent care clinics is far too common. Anyone can suffer malpractice – even patients who seek treatment for a fairly minor issue. Some common examples of hospital errors include:
- Mistakes in anesthesia administration
- Surgery on the wrong body part
- The wrong surgical procedure
- Unsanitary conditions
- Dangerous or defective technology
- Prescription medication errors
- Tools left inside a patient’s body
We have an in-depth understanding of the many details involved in hospital negligence cases. From investigating your claim to proving it in court, we know what it takes to build a successful case for compensation.
Injury cases involving medical professionals have a strict statute of limitations. You must file your claim within three years of the date of malpractice or within one year of the date that you discover your injury.
