Hospital Injuries — Montana Attorneys

Bozeman Medical Malpractice Lawyers

The hospital advertised a high quality of care. But when the hospital staff made a life-endangering mistake, that same hospital claimed it should not be held to such high standards. When the level of care falls below accepted standards, the hospital should be held accountable. Contact the Montana hospital injuries lawyers at Beck, Amsden & Stalpes, PLLC.

Credentialing

As medicine has advanced, it has also become more specialized. You wouldn't want a general family practice physician to take on your open-heart surgery. It is not only the doctor who must make responsible decisions, but also the hospital.

Standards

Medical providers are highly respected and well-compensated. In turn, they have serious responsibilities for competence and keeping abreast of the latest studies, treatments, and medicines. If they fail to maintain the standards of others in their profession, they are negligent.

Hospitals and their staffs have basic obligations, such as answering patient calls and providing proper hygiene and nutrition. Medication or dosage errors can be injurious or even fatal. When the wrong decision is made — including the decision to have a patient wait for care — the patient and the family deserve answers and compensation.

While a hospital liability lawsuit cannot undo the damage, it can encourage better care in the future. For example, when a patient had his spleen removed, the hospital did not give a needed $25 vaccine to the patient, and he died as a result. Because of our firm's lawsuit, that hospital and others in Montana now provide the vaccine as part of their surgical protocol.

At Beck, Amsden & Stalpes, when patients in hospitals suffer injuries from nursing medication errors, anesthesia malpractice, or other medical errors that cause death or injury, we can help the victim or the victim's family recover compensation.
