    Injured Due to Hospital Negligence? You Could Be Entitled to Compensation

    We expect quality treatment when we turn to hospitals for our medical needs. Sometimes, however, corporate-owned hospitals that focus more on profits than patients do not deliver the care injured, and ill people need. In addition, understaffing can lead to hospital staff needing help to care for the basic needs of patients.

    Hurried and harried doctors may make incorrect diagnoses or surgical errors that cause injuries. Sometimes intentional abuse is a concern when hospital workers are not carefully supervised. If you were harmed due to the negligence of a hospital, you have the right to seek compensation.

    How We Can Help

    In order to be successful in a claim against a hospital and its staff, negligence must be proven, which is not easy. The medical community will stand up for its own and will not readily admit that an error happened or that personnel were neglectful and caused injuries.

    When you want to hold a hospital accountable, having attorneys on your side who understand what it takes to be successful in a complex medical malpractice case is critical. We are those attorneys.

    When we represent you, we will work hard to build the strongest case possible by establishing the following:

    • The hospital and its staff owed you a duty of care because a hospital-patient relationship existed.
    • The hospital/hospital staff did not live up to the accepted standard of medical care that a similar medical facility and its personnel would have under the same circumstances.
    • The negligence of the hospital and its staff caused your injuries.
    • You suffered losses, or damages, because of your injuries.

    A hospital negligence lawyer from our firm will provide knowledgeable guidance throughout the claim process. If the hospital does not offer you an acceptable settlement amount, we’ll counsel you about pursuing a resolution at trial.

    Compensation & Damages in Hospital Negligence Claims

    How much compensation you may be able to get depends on the losses or damages, you’ve sustained. Depending upon the severity of your injuries, you may be able to get payment for damages such as the following:

    • Current and future doctor bills and other medical costs of treating your injuries
    • Lost wages if you missed time at work while healing
    • Loss of future income if your ability to work is affected
    • Pain and suffering
    • Loss of enjoyment of life.

    This damage list is not all-inclusive. Once we review your case, we can advise you about the entirety of the damages you may be able to receive payment for in your claim.

    FAQs about Hospital Negligence

    Hospital Negligence Lawyers Answer FAQs

    When you go to a hospital for medical help and end up with injuries, it is extremely confusing and frustrating. You may not understand the recourse you have if you were harmed due to negligence.

    Below, we answer common questions we see from people who have sustained injuries at hospitals.

    Whom can I hold responsible for my injuries at a hospital?

    Hospital negligence may occur whenever a hospital staff member or employee has failed to meet the standard of care as determined by the medical community of Kansas. Although negligence or abuse may be because of an individual – including a doctor, nurse, physical therapist, anesthesiologist, or any other hospital employee – the hospital may be deemed responsible for the actions or mistreatment by their employees.

    How long will my case take?

    The majority of medical malpractice cases are settled outside of trial, which may take just months. Cases that go to trial can take longer — even a year or more. We know that you have suffered financial losses because of the hospital’s negligence and need your claim resolved as quickly as possible.

    But we also want you to get the full amount of compensation you need for your injuries. We will strive to move forward consistently and keep your case from getting delayed unnecessarily.

    Can I sue if my family member died due to hospital negligence?

    If you are an eligible survivor of a family member who died due to hospital negligence, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the facility and the specific medical personnel whose negligence contributed to the death. You and other survivors could receive compensation for funeral and burial expenses, loss of companionship and support, and other damages. If you find yourself in this situation, it’s important to consult with a Topeka wrongful death lawyer who can provide you with the legal guidance you need.

    What is the statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit against a hospital?

    The statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit against a hospital is generally two years from the date you were injured or the date you discovered your injuries and no more than four years from when the injuries happened. Wrongful death claims must usually be filed within two years of the date of death.

    For answers that directly pertain to your case, contact our hospital negligence lawyers directly. We may be able to help you get significant compensation.

    Client Testimonial

    ”My case was a long drawn out process because of the insurance company didn’t want to pay. LJ and Tonya kept working hard and long to make sure I got what I deserved. After 3 yrs they still low balled us and so LJ said with my agreement we’ll go to court and ask for hole lot more, 30 minutes after he hung up the phone they called back and settled with what we wanted. LJ and Tonya stay in contact with me and update me for 3yrs even making sure I was doing ok medically. That in my opinion is above and beyond what anyone could ask for.” – Dave Hoffner (Google Review)
