Nursing Malpractice Lawyer

Providing Steadfast Legal Support Throughout Cleveland Since 1959

Nurses bear a significant amount of responsibility for their patients, and in some ways, a nurse’s care may have more of an effect on a patient’s recovery than the doctor’s treatment. Nurses stay by the patient’s side, administer medications, monitor all fluids and monitors, and look for any potential danger signs. When a nurse is competent and experienced, he or she can be instrumental in helping a patient recover. However, if a nurse is negligent or if a nurse makes a serious mistake, the patient could suffer serious, life-altering damage as a result.

At The Lancione Law Firm, we understand how difficult it is to deal with a serious illness or injury, especially if the damage you have suffered was caused by someone else’s mistake or negligence. Thankfully, our team of practiced attorneys knows precisely what to do to help you and your family seek justice and compensation after an injury. We have more than 30 years of experience and our firm has recovered millions in settlements and verdicts on behalf of our clients. Whatever you’re up against, we’re prepared to help.

Identifying Nursing Malpractice

A nursing malpractice suit could arise from any situation where a nurse is negligent, careless, or erroneous. Nurses, like other medical professionals, receive special training on how to monitor patients, how to administer medication, what to do in emergencies, and so on. A nurse is the go-to contact for most patients, which is why nurses must be confident and competent. If a nurse makes a mistake that injures the patient or causes fatal, painful, or irreparable harm, that nurse and his or her associated medical facility could be held liable for the resulting damage.

Common types of nursing malpractice include:

  • Failure to identify or respond to an emergency
  • Failure to monitor
  • Lack of sanitation
  • Medical document mistakes
  • Medical equipment errors
  • Medication errors

Proving Liability

When dealing with nursing malpractice lawsuits, it is important to understand that the nurse is not the only liable party. Liability often falls to the hospital, medical office, nursing home, or medical facility where the nurse works. These facilities are responsible for monitoring their employees, holding them to adequate medical standards of care, hiring licensed employees, handling potential complaints or malpractice issues, and so on. If a hospital knows a nurse is neglectful or if the medical office fails to check its nurses for the appropriate accreditations while hiring, those facilities could be liable for their nurses’ dangerous actions.

Let Our Firm Help You, Today!

Nobody should have to question whether or not the medical care they receive is safe and effective. Patients should be able to trust that their nurses and doctors are doing everything possible to help them heal and recover.

If you or someone you love suffered an injury or illness due to a nurse’s negligence or mistake, our firm is prepared to help you seek justice and compensation. Our experienced attorneys can identify the liable party in your case, gather evidence of wrongdoing, and hold the liable parties responsible for their negligence.
