When improper or negligent care occurs in a hospital, it can be devastating to the patient and their family. The place you trust for expert medical care can become a hazard if the personnel do not perform their duties to the standard required.

When hospital negligence occurs, you and your loved ones deserve to be compensated for the transgressions that transpired. At Nelson & Hammons, we are your side and will help you pursue your legal case when hospital negligence happens to you or someone you love.

Hospital negligence must be defined by the employees and situation involved. Not everyone who works in the hospital is an employee of the hospital. If a surgeon or doctor is negligent, they may be independent of the hospital. However, if they are employees or the responsibility is tandem with the hospital, multiple lawsuits may be necessary. Our experienced team with over 40 years of experience can help you determine who is at fault for the negligence and whom to hold responsible for financial retribution.
