Personal injuries that occur in hospitals are slightly different from standard personal injury cases, but are covered under the same general body of civil law as other types of injuries, such as motor vehicle accidents. Because a hospital is a medical provider, personal injury cases that occur in hospitals are considered medical malpractice cases. Medical malpractice cases are serious cases that deserve attention. You can count on the reputable Maryland personal injury lawyers at Snyder & Snyder to fight your medical malpractice case and recover the damages you have suffered.
Your personal injury lawyer will take the time to review every detail of your individual case, proving that the hospital breached its duty to provide you with emergency medical care as protected under the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act, and that breach of duty lead to an injury. If these elements of your case are proven, you may be entitled to compensation that covers medical bills and the pain and suffering you may have endured, as well as money for work you may have missed.
Hospitals have a responsibility to their patients, but unfortunately these responsibilities are not always carried out properly. You've suffered enough; don't wait any longer to get your medical malpractice case reviewed and find out if you are entitled to compensation. If you or a loved one suffered personal injuries while being treated at a hospital, contact the trustworthy Litigation Team at Snyder & Snyder today.
