Medical Malpractice: Hospital Malpractice

Most injuries or deaths due to medical malpractice occur in hospitals.  When it is a nurse's fault, the hospital is liable because most nurses are employees of the hospital.  However, most doctors are not employees of the hospital and therefore the hospital may not be legally liable for the negligence of physicians. Physicians are often considered "independent contractors," which requires the patient to sue the physician and/or the physician's business entity.

Often times, the fault may be from a combination of the physicians and nurses because under many circumstances communication errors occur between the hospital staff and physicians.  Since the vast majority of the patients admitted to hospitals have significant pre-existing medical problems where the outcome caused by negligence may be very difficult to separate from the natural outcome of the underlying medical or disease process, these cases are quite complicated.  Contact Hilbrich Law Firm to investigate your hospital malpractice case.  We are medical malpractice attorneys proudly serving Hammond, IN, Crown Point, IN, Highland, IN, Valparaiso, IN, Portage, IN, and more.
