Every patient who visits a medical facility is legally entitled to certain standards of care, but hospital negligence is a regular occurrence. And for those who are on the receiving end, the outcome can be extremely serious. Unfortunately, hospital negligence can even lead to fatalities.
Hospital negligence is a term that covers a variety of issues, such as a lack of correctly trained staff, unsanitary washing and dining facilities, under-qualified medical practitioners and incorrect diagnosis of conditions. Sadly, when hospital negligence does occur, the outcome will affect patients and their loved ones, too.
Anybody who has been a victim of hospital negligence should contact Pattinson & Brewer. Our specialist solicitors have expert knowledge in this area, and have a wide experience of handling hospital negligence cases. Because of our vast experience, we have a firm understanding of the future needs of patients who have suffered any form of hospital negligence.
In the more serious non-fatal cases of hospital negligence, recovery is not possible. Therefore, a compensation award will need to reflect not only the incident itself and the immediate treatment, but also long-term care arrangements. At Pattinson & Brewer, we will pursue the largest possible claim for hospital negligence, so call us today for a no-obligation discussion.
