While hospital negligence claims are often considered less complex than medical malpractice claims, they are not without their challenges.
Plaintiffs are still required to present evidence that supports their claims of negligence and their need for compensation. This includes gathering medical records, doctor and staff testimony, diagnostic results, hospital policy documents, and recordings or security footage. In addition to this, plaintiffs then face complex tort laws and statutes of limitations that can easily confuse anyone not adept at interpreting the law.
There is no drawback to at least speak with an attorney who offers free initial consultations like we do here at the Law Office of James H. Guest, L.L.C. Additionally, our firm works on a contingency basis, which means there is no fee if there is no recovery.
