Chicago Hospital Negligence Attorneys

Hospitals are complex hives of medical activity, with a variety of staff members interacting with any given patient every day. Each medical professional has an important job to perform, and when even one of them is negligent in their duties, they can put vulnerable patients in extreme danger. For hospital patients, something as simple as a loose guardrail can lead to serious injury or death.

All hospital employees have a duty to handle their jobs with the utmost care. When they fail to do so, they put patients at risk and betray the trust patients and families put in them. At Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC, we believe negligent hospital employees should pay for the harm they cause to patients. If you or a loved one was hurt by hospital negligence, we will work with you to build a strong case against the employee responsible and fight tirelessly to hold them accountable.

How Hospital Employees Commit Negligent Errors

In any lawsuit, proving negligence means proving that the defendant had a duty to take some care and they failed to do so, that their failure caused the incident to occur, and that the incident caused harm. Here are some examples of negligence by hospital staff:

  • A nurse leaves a patient in the same position for an extended period of time without checking their skin; bedsores develop.
  • A medical technician forgets to place a guardrail on an unsteady patient’s bed; the patient falls and fractures a hip.
  • A nurse administers the wrong medication to a patient.
  • Food staff deliver a meal to a patient containing ingredients to which the patient is allergic; the patient has an allergic reaction.
  • A nurse fails to change the dressing on a wound carefully or often enough; the wound develops an infection.

These are just a few examples of the many possible types of hospital negligence and this type of accusation doesn’t apply to everyone that operates in a hospital. An experienced attorney from Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC can help you determine whether hospital negligence or another type of medical malpractice suit is appropriate for your case.

084_DWP6380To Karlin, Fleisher & Falkenberg, LLC Please accept my sincere appreciation for the services your agency provided to me and my family on the Jessie Palmer wrongful death cases.

My stepdaughters asked me to thank you as well for the settlements they received from their father’s estate. We humbly appreciate the wonderful job your firm did with our case. In the future we will refer family and friends to your agency.

Thank you so much for your diligent, professional, and thorough handling of my car accident settlement. You were beyond helpful, accommodating, and supportive during the process. You patiently explained, in detail, the procedures that would take place during the course of the claim. You continually updated me as progress was made and gave me in-depth details. Being that I was a novice to this type of practice, you advised me as to what was realistic, yet fair, as far as when, how, and monetarily the claim would be settled. When an offer was made, you advised me accordingly, and counter-offered for what you believed to be a reasonable and objective settlement. Beyond that, you also worked determinedly to reduce my medical claims and had great success. An attorney friend of mine went as far to say that you “hit a home run” when you negotiated my settlement. I want you to know how much your guidance and attentiveness to my claim meant to me. I will definitely recommend you and your firm should any of my acquaintances need legal advice in the future.

Dear J.B. ,
I wanted to thank you, for the job you did on my case. You were not only an excellent lawyer, you were a friend along the way as well. You always promptly called me, addressing my questions and concerns. As far as my settlement goes, I couldn’t have expected more then you got for me. Many lawyers “brag” , about the amount of settlements they get for their clients, on their T.V. commercials . You, got me more then these lawyers “brag” about. Thank you for getting me such a strong settlement, and being a friend as well, along the way. I’d be more then happy to talk to anyone who would like to know , what a fine attorney you are. Thank you for being there for me. Sincerely,

- J. F.

It was not only comforting to have skilled, knowledgeable and experienced attorneys and staff during one of the most difficult times of my life, but to be supported by people who had my best interest at heart and genuinely cared about me and my personal feelings made all the difference in the world. I walked in as a client and was cared for by a family, and for that I’ll be forever grateful! H. B.
