Our Hospital and Nursing Errors Practice
We provide comprehensive counsel to individuals who have suffered needless injury because of the carelessness or negligence of a nurse. Nurses work for hospitals — unlike physicians, who are independent contractors. Therefore, when a nurse’s mistake results in an injury or death, the malpractice claim involves elements of both the nurse’s errors and any applicable hospital errors. We handle all types of nursing negligence and hospital negligence claims, including cases involving failure by a nurse to:
- Call or bring in a doctor in a timely manner
- Recognize signs or symptoms of serious medical conditions, such as swelling or numbness
- Communicate patient complaints to a doctor
- Correctly read and respond to a test or lab result
- Administer the correct medication or dosage
Nursing errors can occur in virtually any type of hospital situation, including in the emergency room, ambulatory clinics, in labor and delivery suites or during surgery in an operating room.
We will help you pursue full and fair compensation for any loss or injury resulting from the wrongful conduct of a nurse, from lost wages or income to any additional medical expenses you incur, from pain and suffering to loss of companionship or consortium. We also handle wrongful death claims resulting from nursing errors.
