It is unsettling to learn that every year thousands of people are injured or killed in hospital, in some cases because of negligence.
What is Hospital Negligence?
Hospital negligence can occur in a number of different ways. A patient who is injured by the negligence of a hospital employee or contractor may have a claim against the hospital. A hospital may also be liable to an injured patient for negligently selecting the doctors it allows to provide services within its walls. There may also be a claim against a hospital for negligence if one patient assaults another or if the hospital refuses to provide emergency services.
Claims Are Time-Sensitive
A claim for personal injury or wrongful death can be lost forever if it is not pursued within a given period of time. In Arizona, that time period is generally two years from the time the plaintiff knew or should have known of the negligence. Because legal claims are time sensitive it is wise to promptly consult an attorney if you suspect you may have a claim.
