Hospital employee errors cause the hospital to be liable for your injuries. Most doctors are independent contractors and hospitals are not normally liable for the medical malpractice negligence of the doctors. There are some cases where doctors are employees of a hospital and cause liability on the part of the hospital. Furthermore, there are cases where hospitals can be responsible if it gives an incompetent doctor staff privileges. If any of the above applies, please call Attorney Tim Chelpaty.
The majority of operations are usually extremely successful. Occasionally, errors are made during the surgeries. If the doctor's negligence causes him/her to make an error, you must prove that a medical doctor has deviated from the standard of care and that this negligence has caused harm. Surgical error cases are some of the most difficult cases to pursue. The most common type of surgical error is infection caused by poor hygiene, organs being perforated, foreign objects left in the body, wrong body part being operated on, and wrong operation being performed due to negligence. If you feel that there is negligence on the part of your doctor and you might have a case, please call Attorney Tim Chelpaty.
EMERGENCY ROOM ERRORS
Emergency rooms are very busy places. But this does not excuse errors or negligence. Emergency room doctors are afforded more leeway than is given to regular doctors. Emergency room physicians can still be held liable for any harm that their errors cause. In order to prove an emergency room negligence claim, it must prove (1) that the patient was harmed by the negligence (2) the emergency room treatment did not live up to the standard of care, and (3) there was a doctor/patient relationship. If you believe you have been harmed by an emergency room error, please call Attorney Tim Chelpaty.
