What Happens When a Hospital is Negligent

If you or a loved one has been hurt by hospital negligence, then you are likely wondering what happens next. What can you do to address the physical pain and financial hardships caused by the hospital’s negligence?

While the negligent act that caused you harm was out of your control, you do have control over your recovery. When you first suspect that something is not right, you should:
  • Seek the care of a medical doctor whom you trust. This doctor does not need to be affiliated with the hospital which caused you harm. After an examination, it is important to follow your doctor’s recommendations about follow up care to maximum your chances of recovering.

For decades, the dedicated medical malpractice lawyers of Shevlin Smith have been fighting for the fair recoveries for the victims of Washington D.C. and Virginia medical malpractice. Attorneys in our firm understand how significant your injuries are and will do everything that we can to help you.
