Hospital Injuries

Experienced in Hospital Negligence and Errors

Alabama Hospital Injury Attorneys

Hospitals serve a critical role in our society. People afflicted with serious illnesses or injuries go to hospitals in the hope of being cured and healed by health care professionals with years of specialized training.

That’s why hospital injuries can be so frustrating. Due to mistakes made by doctors, surgeons, nurses or other medical professionals, people seeking treatment in hospitals end up with worse health problems due to their actions or inaction. In certain extreme cases, patients sometimes die due to hospital negligence or mistakes made by staff members.

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

Emergency Room Errors

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.

Hospital Infections

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)
  • Pseudomonas
  • Sepsis (a life-threatening complication of infections)

Miscommunication in Hospitals

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.
