Suing for Patient Hospital Falls – File Your Claim Here
Many individuals when admitted to a hospital expect to be kept safe at all times, and this sense of false security belies what really happens in a hospital setting. In-patient falls are considered never-events, but shockingly, they do happen on a regular basis. That said, patients are required to be assessed with regard to their fall risk when they are first admitted into a hospital so that the facility can mitigate said risk at all times. To this end, it can be said that hospital falls are as a result of negligence by healthcare professionals, as well as something that you should never accept as an accident that happens. If you or a loved one fell and sustained injuries in a hospital setting, you have every right to file a lawsuit to recover money damages as well as seek closure, and we’re here to help with that.

Patient safety isn’t just something that is the nurse’s responsibility: all healthcare professionals are required to keep patients safe and do what is reasonably expected to ensure the same such as helping patients off wheelchairs, giving them a hand as they head over to the restroom, monitoring individuals that are on disorienting medications such as antipsychotics, as well as those with neurocognitive conditions such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. Failure to keep patients safe leading to falls constitutes negligence as long as certain requirements for the establishment of the same are present. As a patient that fell in a hospital, compensation may help you in a number of ways, such as taking care of medical costs, alleviating the pain and suffering you’re going through, catering for patient transfers, getting you a home care specialist, taking care of your legal fees, and so much more.
