Connecticut Failure to Monitor Patient Attorneys
Doctors are not the only people who can commit medical malpractice. Nurses have a lot of important responsibilities, and without their proper care and attention, patients can suffer serious injuries. If you believe that a nurse's negligence has led to serious injuries for you or a member of your family, an experienced lawyer can help you protect your rights.
At Jacobs & Dow, our New Haven nursing error lawyers have been protecting the victims of medical malpractice for more than 60 years. We have seen firsthand the serious injuries that can be caused by nursing negligence, and we will do whatever it takes to hold nurses accountable so you get the compensation you deserve.
Protecting Nursing Malpractice Victims
Most doctors do not have the time or resources to keep a close eye on their patients as they recover from an illness or surgery. It is the responsibility of the nursing staff to monitor patients and keep doctors informed of anything that might be wrong. There is a chain of command in hospitals, and so even if a doctor ignores repeated warning, your nurse has a responsibility to notify the next person on the chain of command.
If you failed to receive a diagnosis or treatment for symptoms of an illness or infection that your nurse knew about, you may have been the victim of malpractice. Nurses could also commit malpractice by giving a patient the wrong medication or carrying out the wrong course of treatment.
You may not know what went wrong as your illness progressed, but there are answers out there. We work with medical and nursing experts who can help us evaluate your case. Handling all nursing malpractice cases on a contingency basis, you do not have to worry about legal fees unless we get you the full compensation you deserve.
