Doctor and/or Hospital Error
We rely on doctors to keep us in good health, as well as to diagnose and treat a variety of medical conditions, illnesses, injuries and diseases. And while hospital and doctor errors fortunately do not occur often, when one does occur, the results can be life-changing. Medical malpractice due to a hospital error can arise as a result of the actions or inactions of physicians, nurses or other medical staff, as well as other personnel in the hospital setting. Additionally, errors made in conjunction with medication, anesthesia or surgery can constitute medical malpractice in some cases.
It’s important to note that not every error or mistake that occurs in a hospital can be construed as medical malpractice. In order for a hospital error to be considered as malpractice, it must be shown that negligence, incompetence or a sub-par level of care was to blame. This means that even if you think you have a valid malpractice case due to hospital error, it will be an uphill battle to prove. Hospitals have vast legal resources at their disposal to defend themselves when an error occurs. That’s why you need an experienced personal injury lawyer from the Eltringham Law Group on your side.
If you or a loved one has been injured, harmed or negatively impacted in some way by an error made by doctor or in a hospital environment, you need a personal injury attorney that understands how to build a solid case and understands the obstacles you will face along the way. You also need a personal injury who will treat you with compassion and like one of their own family members. That’s where the attorneys at Eltringham Law Group step in.

We start by offering free consultations, during which the specifics of your case will be discussed and analyzed.
