Experienced Attorney Representing Victims Who Suffered Injuries in Hospitals

When you are admitted to a hospital, you should be expecting your medical condition to improve, not worsen. Unfortunately, a number of patients in hospitals actually acquire new injuries or illnesses as a result of their hospital stay. The United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) reports that, though hospital injuries have improved in recent years, 132 out of every 10001 hospital patients will suffer some type of condition acquired in the hospital. In such cases, the injured patient deserves to fully recover from the hospital for any injury-related losses. If you have suffered injury in a hospital, the personal injury attorneys at The Bruning Law Firm in St. Louis can help you.

Common Causes of Hospital Injuries

The following are some examples of negligence that may lead to additional and unnecessary injury in hospital patients:

  • Inadequate supervision
  • Inadequate assistance in assisting a patient move around
  • Improper inspection or maintenance of the hospital premises
  • Using equipment that is not sterilized
  • Hiring unqualified staff members
  • Medical malpractice2
  • Abuse of neglect by staff members.

Hospital Cases Can Be Complicated

Taking on a hospital in a legal claim is generally significantly more challenging than filing against another individual. Hospital administrators are aware of the risk of injury on the premises and have legal teams in place who strive to avoid liability whenever possible. Hospitals tend to have extensive resources they are able to dedicate to defending against personal injury claims, so such parties often have the ability to build an aggressive defense. This does not mean that you cannot win a legal claim against a hospital, however, but only that you should always have the representation and assistance of a qualified attorney.
