Patients rightly expect to be properly treated and protected from harm when admitted to hospitals. All too often, however, hospital patients are injured or contract illnesses while in the hospital. When this is a result of negligence on the part of a medical professional or hospital administration, victims may pursue compensation for their losses.

At the Savage Law Firm, we handle a wide range of hospital malpractice cases, including those involving hospital injuries, illnesses and infections. Our medical malpractice lawyers have extensive experience handling hospital negligence cases and will work aggressively to help you obtain the compensation you need and deserve.

Hospital-Acquired Infections

Hospital-acquired infections are a serious risk to patients. Common causes of hospital infections include:

  • Unsanitary instruments
  • Failure to monitor patients
  • Failure to properly dispose of hazardous waste
  • Unclean floors and surfaces
  • Inadequate ventilation
  • Staff members failing to properly wash their hands

Hospitals are responsible for ensuring their premises are safe for patients and visitors, and that safety standards are met. Our attorneys thoroughly investigate hospital-acquired illness and injury cases to identify liable parties and help our clients obtain maximum compensation for their losses.
