Hospital Injury Lawyers
An Omaha Law Firm That Stands Up for Your Rights
We usually think of a hospital as a safe place where patients can recover from illnesses. Hospitals have a responsibility to protect patients from hazards. When they don't meet this responsibility, it can result in serious injuries. The medical malpractice attorneys at Ausman Law Firm, P.C., L.L.O. hold negligent parties responsible and help the injured recover financial compensation.
In Nebraska, some common injuries that occur in hospitals are related to slip and falls. If spills are not cleaned up promptly, a patient can slip and fall on the floor. This can lead to broken bones, as well as hip and back injuries. Other injuries are related to neglect. A patient is not properly turned, and develops a pressure sore, aka hospital acquired pressure injury. Or a patient suffers mental or physical abuse.
The negligent party can be anyone who works in the hospital, including:
Or you or a loved one could have been harmed by another patient or a visitor to the hospital, leading to a negligent security claim against the hospital itself.
No matter how your hospital injury occurred, you should not have to pay for the damages it caused. A hospital injury can result in additional medical expenses. You may be unable to return to work because of your injury. You could lose income. You may also not be able to participate in your usual activities.
Fighting For The Injured
Our Omaha hospital injury attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation into your case. We will look at the facts to determine how your hospital acquired injury happened. We'll review all medical records and check to see if all rules and regulations were followed during your hospital stay. We will also interview witnesses.
When we find evidence of negligence, we will fight to get you maximum compensation for your injury. In addition to medical expenses and lost income, you may also seek compensation for non-economic damages, such as emotional distress and pain and suffering.
We don't expect the hospital to accept responsibility for your injury. That's why we work to build a strong case. Because we know the insurance company will do anything to deny your claim or reduce the amount they have to pay.
