    Manhattan, Kansas, Hospital Negligence

    Hospital negligence can profoundly change your life. No matter what prompted your hospital visit, negligence can compound your initial health issue.

    A hospital negligence lawyer must prove the following when it comes to your civil claim or lawsuit:

    • The hospital owed you a duty of care.
    • The hospital breached the duty of care.
    • The breach caused you harm.
    • You suffered damages because of the harm.

    Most hospitals deal with staffing issues. However, overworked employees, unfilled positions, and a lack of proper training for new hires can result in negligence. The problem is so serious that researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine deem medical errors the third leading cause of death in the United States.

    Examples of medical mistakes include:

    • Misdiagnosis
    • Unnecessary treatment
    • Prescription errors
    • Wrong-site surgery
    • Leaving surgical items in a patient
    • Poor communication between providers and staff.

    This is a partial list but a few examples of what can go tragically wrong during a hospital stay. Tired or untrained staff can make a simple mistake that can cause long-term or permanent damage.

    In addition to your new and preventable health issues, you must continue to seek help with your original problem. Again, the overwhelming process and emotional stress are something you do not deserve.

    Hiring a hospital negligence attorney helps protect your best interests. Your attorney can manage the details of your case, allowing you more time to rest and heal.

    A free case consultation is an essential first step in your journey to justice. If you believe you suffered damages due to hospital negligence, take action. Contact a Manhattan, Kansas, attorney as quickly as possible.

    How We Can Help

    Your attorney is on your side from the start of your claim or lawsuit until the outcome. From investigating the negligence to identifying all liable parties, your attorney will work hard on your behalf.

    Negotiating for a fair settlement requires skill and experience. Unfortunately, insurance companies try to confuse victims by offering a settlement early in the process. This offer is typically far less than victims deserve.

    An insurance company representative may appear eager to help you. In reality, they want to protect their company’s best interests. If you accept their offer without help from an attorney, you may not seek additional compensation later.

    An attorney from the Palmer Law Group can handle the legwork, paperwork, witness interviews, and evidence gathering on your behalf. In addition, they can keep you informed with updates and answer any questions you want to ask.

    You do not have to face your hospital negligence case alone. Hiring an attorney from the Palmer Law Group places your case in the hands of a lawyer well-versed in Kansas civil law.

    Accepting a settlement offer without an attorney makes insurance companies happy. Disappoint them and protect your best interests by contacting the Palmer Law Group today.

    Manhattan, Kansas, Lawyers Answer Hospital Negligence FAQs

    If you have questions regarding hospital negligence cases, you are not alone. The following frequently asked questions may help you decide your next move:

    What is the difference between a claim and a lawsuit?

    A personal injury claim is generally the first step in the civil process. A lawsuit involves taking your case to court.

    How long do I have to pursue a hospital negligence case?

    The Kansas statute of limitations allows two years for civil cases. The two-year period begins at the moment of injury or illness.

    What types of evidence may help my hospital negligence attorney?

    Documentation of your injuries or illness, pictures, witness contact information, and medical reports are a few examples of valuable evidence.

    Can I sue if hospital negligence resulted in the death of my loved one?

    A Manhattan, Kansas, wrongful death attorney can determine if your relationship to the decedent qualifies you for civil action.

    I’m unsure if I want to sue. Can I take two years to decide?

    No. If the statute of limitations expires before you file your civil hospital negligence lawsuit, you generally have no further legal options. You must act quickly when holding a hospital accountable for its negligence.

    Hospital negligence is the last thing you expect to encounter as a patient. Yet, the experience can leave you with these and other questions. Get the answers you seek by contacting the Palmer Law Group today.
