Unfortunately, not all hospitals deliver the competent and high-quality care we expect them to. Ideally, hospitals would administer prompt, effective, and compassionate treatment to all of their patients. The facilities would be sanitary and well-kept. Employees would be well-trained and able. Though we expect the ideal, however, many hospitals fall short of these hopes. When patients suffer from outrageously poor facilities and treatment, they have been victims of hospital negligence.
Victims of hospital negligence deserve to receive damages for added medical costs, lost wages, and general pain and suffering. Contact the Spokane hospital negligence lawyers of Fuller & Fuller at 800-570-4878 to discuss your legal rights and options with an experienced attorney.
Defining Hospital Negligence
You may ask yourself, have I been a victim of hospital negligence? How do I know if I was neglected? If you have suffered additional harm while during your stay in a hospital, then you may very well have been a victim of hospital abuse or neglect. You have a valid claim if you have suffered from any of the following negligent acts:
- Delivery of the wrong medication
- Surgical error
- Development of a hospital-acquired infection
- Failure to deliver necessary treatment promptly
- Failure to hire and fully train competent employees
Sometimes it can be difficult to take action against a negligent hospital or hospital worker. These are the people and institutions that, however carelessly, provided you with treatment for your condition. However, you shouldn’t second-guess your claim. If you have been mistreated, you have a right to recover damages.
If you or someone you love has been harmed through hospital negligence, then you deserve compensation for your suffering. The Spokane medical malpractice lawyers of Fuller & Fuller can provide you with the aggressive representation you need to make a successful claim.
