Hospital Errors

Hospitals are intended to be places we go to when we are unwell. Physicians or other medical professionals are supposed to diagnose the problem and provide treatment to make us feel well again. But what can be done when hospital staff commit errors that make us more ill - or result in unnecessary pain or significant and avoidable injury?

If the hospital's error was the result of the failure of a health care professional to act according to the accepted standard of care, and if the error resulted in significant injury, then the patient may have a claim for medical malpractice or medical negligence based on the hospital's error.

When Residents or Physicians in Training Perform Medical Tasks

Many of our clients seek a consultation with our office due to concern that a new doctor - also called a resident or a physician in training - performed the a medical procedure and may have done so incorrectly.

Although the mere fact that a resident physician performed a procedure is not evidence of medical malpractice, it may be worth seeking a legal consultation if you believe a doctor in training handled your care incorrectly.
