Hospital Negligence

Johnson City Hospital Negligence Lawyers

Protecting Injury Victims throughout East Tennessee

When you check into a hospital, you expect that the facility will be clean, safe, and properly managed. This includes physicians and staff working together to ensure you get the care you need and deserve. Unfortunately, the business side of a hospital can take over and leave patients to suffer from a lack of adequate staff, poor equipment, and a lack of priority on patient care. In some cases, this can mean that while a doctor’s error may have caused an issue, the hospital may be liable. For example, the hospital may neglect to provide essential equipment, such as CT scanners.

At Meade Law Group, we can help you sort through the complex details of your case. As your advocate, we pore over hospital medical records and timelines to hold the responsible parties accountable for their negligence. If you or a loved one has been injured, it’s important to have an experienced attorney on your side who can determine who’s responsible for your injuries.

Examples of Hospital or Physician Negligence

When you file a lawsuit against a medical professional or organization, they will likely fight your claims in a hostile and aggressive way. Many times, injured victims are surprised to hear that the problems they sustained were allegedly their fault. The money they need to recover from their injuries will not be provided by the hospital or their insurer.

Meade Law Group is here to fight for you. We have decades of experience handling cases like these, and we understand the challenges you face in proving fault on the part of the medical organization in question. We are not intimidated by their tactics to evade responsibility.

The following are some examples of hospital or physician negligence:

  • Giving the wrong medication
  • Choosing savings over patient care in response to HMO pressure
  • Delaying care or medication
  • Discharging patients before it is safe to do so
  • Misuse of a medical device
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Performing a procedure without consent

Your hospital negligence case could involve any of the following factors, including:

  • Carelessness on the part of hospital staff
  • Lack of proper supervision
  • Lack of sufficient training
  • Failure to communicate
  • Failure to follow procedures and rules

In cases where negligence leads to the death of a patient, Meade Law Group can help their surviving loved ones to file a wrongful death lawsuit and fight for the full and fair compensation to which they are entitled.
