Chester County Hospital Negligence Lawyer

You visit a hospital expecting to receive treatment for an illness or injury. You do not go to the hospital expecting to be harmed or ignored.

Sadly, for various reasons, hospital personnel can make mistakes. These errors sometimes result in patients being injured or not receiving adequate treatment. In some instances, hospital negligence can result in patient death.

Do you believe you or a loved one has been the victim of such carelessness? If so, you may be eligible to recover compensation for such losses as medical bills, funeral expenses, and more. Discuss your options with one of our Chester County hospital negligence attorneys at The Weitz Firm, LLC to learn if you have a valid case.


Hospital negligence can take many potential forms. Examples include (but are not necessarily limited to) the following:

  • Leaving foreign objects in a patient’s body after surgery
  • Failing to protect patients who are at risk of falls with bed rails
  • Administering the wrong medication
  • Administering the wrong dosage of a medication
  • Ignoring a patient’s request for assistance
  • Not adhering to patient safety standards
  • Failing to train personnel adequately
  • Failing to supervise hospital personnel adequately

Errors that result in harm to patients can also be made if hospital personnel are overworked. This is, unfortunately, a relatively common issue at busy hospitals. Regardless of the cause, if a patient is harmed, does not receive necessary treatment, or even loses their life in a hospital because someone was negligent, they or their surviving loved ones deserve compensation.

It’s simply vital to understand that building a case against a hospital or healthcare professional can be very challenging if you lack professional experience. You need to gather substantial evidence showing that you or a loved one sustained harm because parties who had a duty to provide you with a certain quality of care negligently failed to live up to their responsibilities.

Our Chester County hospital negligence attorneys can assist you with this task. We can also help by:

  • Accounting for all your compensable losses to determine how much compensation you may deserve
  • Completing all administrative tasks that filing a claim or medical malpractice lawsuit can involve, such as coordinating with experts, submitting paperwork by deadlines, etc.
  • Rejecting unreasonably low settlement offers from insurers and negotiating for a fair payout on your behalf

Being injured, not receiving treatment, or losing a loved one due to hospital negligence are all difficult experiences. You should not add to your burdens by attempting to handle your case alone. While you focus on your recovery and personal needs, we will focus on helping you secure the compensation you are owed.


If you or a loved one seek compensation for losses and damages resulting from hospital negligence, our Chester County attorneys at The Weitz Firm are on hand to offer aggressive representation. Our expertise will optimize your chances of recovering the full amount of compensation for which you may be eligible.
