Lawsuit Alleges Hospital Negligence Led to Fall and Subsequently a Traumatic Brain Injury

March 14, 2017 | Product Liability

When a patient suffers injuries due to negligence on the part of medical professionals, the patient can opt to file a personal injury lawsuit against the health care professional(s) and/or hospital. Damages can be sought for medical expenses, lost past and future wages, emotional distress, and pain and suffering. Once the litigation process is underway, the plaintiff can seek litigation funding.

A couple is suing a hospital, citing alleged insufficient measures were taken to prevent the wife’s fall and subsequent brain injury while she was receiving care for another medical issue.

The woman was taken but ambulance to the hospital in September 2014, after an unrelated health emergency at her home. The complaint alleges that shortly after arriving in the ER, the woman fell from either the hospital bed or stretcher. She was found on the floor and later diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury. The lawsuit alleges that hospital staff failed to provide adequate supervision and assistance to prevent the patient from falling.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and an undisclosed amount in damages.

If the plaintiffs are in need of financial assistance while waiting for justice to be served, they may wish to consider litigation funding.
