Hospitals are where we go for answers and help 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.
For more than 30 years, the law firm of Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., has built a strong and successful practice representing people injured in accidents and as a result of medical malpractice.
A wide range of events can go wrong while a person is in the hospital, including surgical malpractice and errors made during an emergency room visit.
Our attorneys have the time, resources and experience to successfully handle a wide range of hospital error cases, including:
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 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.
