Hospital Negligence

Hospital Negligence

Philadelphia Hospital Error & Malpractice Attorney

If you sought treatment at a hospital in the Philadelphia area and received substandard care, you may wonder whether you have a claim against the facility itself. In these situations, the hospital will typically try to deny liability based on the grounds that it is nothing more than a building that houses the practices of independent doctors, physicians, or surgeons. While this may hold true in some situations, there are others where the hospital is also — or solely — responsible for a patient’s injuries.

The Villari Firm, PLLC represents patients in cases involving hospital negligence and malpractice. With our extensive experience in medical malpractice litigation, we know how to identify all at-fault parties. This may include the hospital or another medical facility where the act of negligence took place. By carefully investigating the incident and evaluating the evidence at hand, we can determine who should be brought to justice and our Philadelphia hospital negligence lawyer can pursue the fair compensation to which the victim is entitled.

When Is a Hospital Liable for Medical Malpractice?

It can be difficult to determine when a hospital is liable, or legally responsible, for a patient’s injuries. While every case is different, there are broad explanations available that can shed light on whether the facility, doctor, or both, are responsible.

A Philadelphia area hospital or medical facility may be liable for a patient’s injuries if:

  • The nurse or physician was employed by the hospital at the time of the event. Employers can be held liable for conduct by employees, including medical malpractice.
  • The hospital was negligent in hiring, disciplining, or investigating employees or independent physicians practicing at the facility. An example may be a hospital that allows an independent surgeon to practice at the facility despite a history of serious errors.
  • Hospital grounds, facilities, or equipment were improperly maintained, leading to an accident or injury. A slip and fall accident or misdiagnosis caused by a defective MRI machine are examples.
