Hospital Negligence

Helping those who have been injured due to hospital negligence.

When you require medical treatment, it is reasonable to expect that a hospital will provide professional care of the highest, most trustworthy standard. Indeed, all hospitals are legally and ethically obligated to meet this standard at all times and for all patients. When hospitals fail in this obligation, whether by careless or willful act, they may be guilty of hospital negligence. Our lawyers believe that the bond of trust between patient and hospital is a sacred one, and that when it is violated, the responsible parties should be made to answer.

Our firm has successfully handled a number of claims relating to the failure to appropriatly monitor, evaluate and/or prevent patients from falling, or developing bed sores and decubitus ulcers.  Depending upon the patient’s condition and circumstances, fall protection may need to be applied, or special precautions may need to be taken to prevent bed sores and ulcers.   

The results of hospital negligence are often dire, including severe injury, permanent disability, and wrongful death. The lawyers at the law firm of Perantinides & Nolan have helped many victims and their families recover compensation for these injuries, most of which involve significant long-term expense and suffering. If you have been injured due to hospital negligence, you may be eligible to collect a recovery for lost wages, pain and suffering, medical expenses, mental anguish, and other losses and damages. If your family has suffered the loss of a loved one due to hospital negligence, you may further be able to collect for loss of future support, love, and companionship as part of a wrongful death claim. Our lawyers would be pleased to evaluate the specific details of your case and to answer any questions you might have in a compassionate, honest manner.

Hospitals are responsible for all aspects of the care they provide, including employees, equipment, and proper maintenance of the facilities. They must take all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of their patients and the adequacy of their services. If they fail to do so, and you are injured as a result, you may have grounds for a hospital negligence suit. Please contact our lawyers if you have any further questions or if you would like to schedule an initial legal consultation.
