Hospital Negligence Claims in Texas

Most people in Texas want to stay out of the hospital unless it's necessary. When they become injured or ill and require hospital treatment, they likely expect that their condition will improve after hospitalization. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Many victims of hospital negligence have found that their physical and mental condition actually worsened as a result of mistakes made by hospital personnel.

The law is clear: When a patient’s injuries occur because of medical negligence, hospitals may be held liable. At Maloney Law Group, P.L.L.C., we fight for victims of these hospitals' negligence.

If you or a loved one has suffered life-threatening medical problems after a hospital stay, you may have been the victim of hospital negligence. You need an attorney who understands this complicated area of law and who has the knowledge, resources, and experience to see your case through to the end.

What Is Hospital Negligence?

Hospitals can be either directly liable or vicariously liable in a medical malpractice lawsuit. If the hospital failed to confirm an employee's credentials, it could be considered negligent if harm to a patient results from that failure. Additionally, nurses and other staff who fail to follow the directions of a primary health care provider could result in a successful negligence claim. Understaffing is another area of concern.

Hospital negligence is a comprehensive term for any kind of medical malpractice that took place during a hospital visit or stay. It refers to a host of injurious actions by physicians, midlevel providers, nurses, medical assistants and technicians who work at the hospital.

These actions may include:

  • Failure to monitor patients
  • Failure to carry out doctor's orders
  • Failure to notify doctors of problems
  • Errors by respiratory therapists
  • Errors by ICU nurses
  • Performing the wrong procedure
  • Medication errors
  • Serious infections
  • Neglect
  • Physical abuse

It also includes systemic negligence by the hospital itself, including unsanitary conditions, inadequate staffing, inadequate training, inadequate supervision, and malfunctioning equipment.

Vicarious Liability

Vicarious liability issues could also exist. If a patient is harmed as a result of an employee's actions, the hospital could be found liable for that employee's negligence. This could mean that the hospital is financially responsible for an injured party if claims of negligence concerning one of its employees are successfully documented.

How a Hospital Negligence Attorney Can Help

Unfortunately, there are many people who will never be the same as a result of hospital negligence. In addition to their pain and suffering, many require long-term medical care that places a strain on their personal finances. To further complicate their life, many such victims in Texas are unable to work and require around-the-clock care. As a result, some choose to seek recompense by filing a civil lawsuit against the hospital. If their claims can be proved, a monetary judgment may assist them financially while also ensuring that other patients do not suffer in a similar manner.
