Colorado Nursing Negligence Attorney
The moment you enter a hospital, you put your trust in the medical staff. You just want to get better, so you can get back to living your life. But in a hospital, even seemingly minor errors may lead to major complications. It is the job of all hospital staff to take reasonable precautions to prevent mistakes. At the Denver law offices of Schoenwald & Thompson LLC, we can help you protect your rights to fair and just compensation for your injuries if they were caused by negligence.
Nursing Negligence and Hospital Liability
If you think you were injured by the negligent actions of hospital staff, you may be the victim of medical malpractice. An experienced nursing negligence lawyer can help evaluate your claim. If the mistakes that led to your complications were the result of the improper actions of a hospital employee, you may have a claim against the hospital. Nursing errors, such as a failure to notify physicians of a change in patient condition, or a failure to monitor equipment properly, can lead to major complications and injuries. The negligent actions of technicians and other hospital employees may also lead to your injuries and justify claims against a hospital.
Hospital Negligence vs. Other Medical Negligence
Some instances of medical malpractice which occur in a hospital will not result in a claim against the hospital or its employees. If a mistake was made by your anesthesiologist or another physician, that may result in separate claims against the doctors, rather than the hospital. We will conduct a thorough investigation in an attempt to determine the cause of your injuries and who should be accountable for them.
All of your health care providers must provide a reasonable level of medical care. Nursing negligence can lead to complications just as serious as physician malpractice. At the Denver, Colorado, law offices of Schoenwald & Thompson LLC, we can help you make sure you get the compensation you deserve, whether caused by a physician, non-physician or a hospital.
