You Can Be Compensated If Errors By Hospital Staff Contributed To Your Injury

For the great majority of people, hospitals are a place of remedy and healing. However, for some people, a trip to the hospital results in further injury. While doctors, nurses and medical staff are highly trained professionals, they are not infallible. And if the actions or negligence of one of these hospital employees causes injury, the hospital must be held accountable.

Understanding Hospital Negligence Claims

It can be difficult to understand your legal rights if you were injured at a hospital. While nurses and medical assistants are typically hospital employees, in many cases doctors are contracted employees. What does this mean for you? If you were injured in a hospital by a contracted doctor, the hospital itself cannot be sued. Instead, you will have to pursue the doctor's insurer in a medical malpractice case. However, in the rare case a doctor is on staff at the hospital, or if your injuries were caused by another staff member such as a nurse, the hospital will likely be liable.

One thing is for certain, if you were a patient in a hospital and were injured due to the negligence or mistake of a health care professional or doctor, you need legal advice.
