Charleston Hospital Negligence Lawyers
Can I File a Claim Against a Hospital for Negligence?
The hospital where you or a loved one received medical care can be held liable if medical malpractice occurred. How can you be certain that the hospital or facility was, in fact, negligent? Berthold Law Firm, PLLC believes in providing only the highest-quality legal representation possible. We review cases thoroughly to determine where negligence might have occurred.
Who Was Responsible for Negligence?
Any employee of the hospital, whether it is a nurse, doctor, or some other health care professional may have committed a critical error. The only elements necessary to prove negligence are that an employee of the hospital acted outside the accepted standards of medical care, leading to one’s injuries.
Some of the most common injuries that result from medical malpractice include:
- Bedsores and Pressure Ulcers
- Medication errors
- Surgical errors
- Anesthesia errors
- ICU malpractice
- Emergency room errors
Remember that to file a claim or a lawsuit against the hospital, it must be proven that the hospital had responsibility for the employee.
