Insider Experience in Personal Injury Law
How Our Law Firm Can Help
Hospitals can be notoriously bureaucratic most of the time. There’s red tape whenever people need to deal with any issue at such large institutions. When the issue involves an injury sustained in the hospital, resolving such a situation can be especially complicated and time consuming. That’s because hospitals often employ entire teams of attorneys focused on one thing – paying injured patients as little as possible or nothing at all.

Types of Hospital Injuries
People dealing with life-threatening injuries or illnesses rely on hospital emergency rooms for quick treatment. That’s why emergency room errors can have such serious consequences. Injury victims who are seriously hurt go to the emergency room for proper treatment. Instead, their medical condition gets worse due to lack of treatment or the wrong treatment altogether.
Hospitals can be dangerous places, and some of the most serious dangers are hospital infections. Hospital-acquired infections cause serious health problems – and sometimes even fatalities – in hospitals across the country. Common and serious hospital infections include:
- Urinary tract infections
- Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
- Clostridium difficile infection (CDI or C-diff)
- Klebsiella (a type of bacterial infection)
- Escherichia coli (E. coli)
- Enterococcus infection (type of lactic acid bacteria)
- Sepsis (a life-threatening complication of infections)
Communication counts in any professional setting, but nowhere is that truer than in a hospital. Surgeons, doctors, nurses and other medical professionals need to communicate clearly with each other. Otherwise, patients can be harmed due to mistakes made due to miscommunication.
