Virginia Hospitals Owe You a Duty of Care

No one is perfect when it comes to patient care. This includes even the best of hospitals in Virginia. But every hospital owes its patients a minimum standard of care. If the hospital breaches that standard of care, and a patient is severely injured or killed because of it, they owe the victim compensation.

Hospitals must meet minimum standards of care to protect their patients’ health and well-being. This includes making sure that the surgeons, physicians, and nursing staff are licensed and meeting minimum standards of care.

Is medical malpractice common? Unfortunately yes. Many instances of medical malpractice and hospital practice go unnoticed or unreported. But according to one article from the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), as many as 225,000 people die each year from medical malpractice.

The bottom-line: medical malpractice can happen in the best of Virginia hospitals.

Why Sue the Hospital for Medical Malpractice?

If you are harmed while receiving care in a Virginia hospital, then you have options. You may have more success bringing a medical malpractice claim against the hospital or a non-doctor health care provider than against a doctor. This is because some juries are more willing to find that a non-doctor health care provider made a medical error that caused your injury. Some juries may also find it easier to blame the hospital than a specific doctor.

A hospital may try to settle your case when a doctor won’t. This is because the doctor’s individual medical malpractice insurance rate will increase.

Develop Your Virginia Hospital Malpractice Claim

Virginia medical malpractice attorney Corey Pollard believes that investigation and preparation are the keys to getting you fair compensation for your injuries. We not only review your medical reports and records, but also question the hospital to explain why they took the actions they did. We’ll find out if the hospital’s actions in your case violated reasonable standards of care. And we’ll determine if the hospital had credentialed physicians practicing at the time of your injury.

Good People Make Mistakes

Hospitals are in the business of helping people. Most, if not all, of the physicians, surgeons, and health care providers that work within their walls are good people. But even good people make mistakes. And if your hospital makes a mistake that causes you damages, then it should be held accountable.
