Hospital and institutional malpractice can include errors that occur within hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities, and any other facility where a patient is placed under the care of a team of medical professionals.

All types of medical malpractice cases are generally complex, so it is crucial to work with an attorney who has extensive knowledge and experience in this area of law. As the plaintiff, you must prove the hospital, doctors, nurses, or staff was negligent, which is often difficult. Additionally, doctors are not always employees of the hospital, and certain injuries occurring in a hospital may qualify as a personal injury case rather than medical malpractice. Our attorneys can help you determine what kind of case you have, which parties are liable, and help you prove those parties were negligent.
