Tallahassee Hospital Malpractice Attorneys
Hospitals Are Supposed To Be A Place Of Healing
You go to the hospital expecting that you will be properly cared for and come out feeling better. The only reason to put any patient in the hospital is to have him or her monitored closely. Unfortunately, hospitals can be the cause of problems that end up making your condition worse. Between 210,000 and 400,000 hospital patients each year suffer some type of preventable harm that contributes to their death. If you or a loved one has suffered from hospital malpractice, our Tallahassee lawyers have the experience and skill to hold that institution responsible for its employees’ negligence.
At Hinkle & Foran, we have seen the devastation a hospital-born infection or surgical error can cause. We believe in holding those who are responsible for the harm done to you liable for their actions. In doing this, we gain compensation for you and potentially prevent this harm from occurring to anyone else. We have helped hundreds of people who have been harmed by medical malpractice, as evidenced by our long list of verdicts and settlements. We will fight just as hard for you.
Problems Caused By Hospital Negligence
Errors occur in hospitals all the time but are quickly covered up to deny liability for the outcome. Nursing staff are frequently overworked, doctors are being pulled in three directions at once and hospital systems are not brought up to date, causing records to be lost and patient care to slip through the cracks.
Lack of staff, poor equipment, lack of proper training and general incompetence can lead to:
- Doctor errors
- Nurse errors
- Emergency room errors
- Drug overdoses
- Incorrect drugs being administered
- Failure to monitor patients
- Hospital infections
