How Hospital Negligence Claims Work

When a hospital or its employees fail to uphold professional standards of care, they can be sued for negligent actions or errors that result in injuries to patients. The Connecticut hospital negligence attorneys at Carter Mario Law Firm can help you understand your legal rights and options if you believe you are the victim of substandard treatment or care. We are ready to conduct a thorough investigation to determine what happened and, most importantly, who is liable for your damages.

There are absolutely no attorneys’ fees unless we recover compensation for you. Our firm is available to take your call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and we can assist you in English, Spanish, or Portuguese. Get in touch with us today to learn more.

Proving Liability in Hospital Negligence Claims

Proving liability in a hospital claim can be incredibly difficult. It is not enough to simply show that you suffered a poor outcome or that you didn’t get better after receiving treatment. Instead, you must prove that hospital staff failed to uphold the standard of care, meaning they were somehow negligent and that this led to your injuries and damages.

What does this look like? Some common examples of hospital negligence include:

  • Failure to recognize signs of a heart attack
  • Failure to conduct necessary diagnostic tests
  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of cancer
  • Failure to treat cancer and other illnesses
  • Medication errors, including overdose
  • Improper lab testing and/or analysis
  • Surgical errors, including retained objects
  • Birth injuries and complications
  • Failed communication between hospital staff/departments

To determine who is responsible for hospital negligence, we typically work to obtain medical records, consult experienced experts, and investigate all relevant details.

Hospital employees who may be held responsible in a negligence claim include:

  • Nurses
  • Aides
  • Therapists
  • Residents
  • Clinicians

In some cases, an individual doctor or healthcare provider who acts negligently or outside the acceptable standard of care may not be an employee of the hospital. In such cases, our team can help you determine if you should file a claim directly against the negligent party. In other instances, it is possible to hold the hospital liable for negligent conduct by its employees. Our attorneys are here to answer your questions and guide you through this process from start to finish.
