Connecticut Hospital Negligence Attorneys
Hospitals are responsible for upholding a professional standard of care and delivering safe and effective medical care to patients. But when hospital employees fail to uphold that standard of care, hospitals can be sued for negligent actions or errors that result in patient injuries. Not every negative patient experience or hospital mistake constitutes negligence or malpractice, but when Carter Mario Injury Lawyers is handling your case, we’ll conduct a multi-step investigation to find out exactly who is responsible. We’re available around the clock, and your initial consultation is always free.

Who Is Responsible?
Medical malpractice claims against hospitals may be complex, as there may be several potentially responsible parties. To help determine who is responsible for your hospital negligence claim, we’ll obtain your medical records, consult medical experts, and investigate the details of your claim.
Hospital employees who may be held responsible in a medical negligence claim, include:
- Advance practice registered nurses (APRNs)
- Certified nurse aides (CNAs)
- Licensed practical nurses (LPNs)
- Physical therapists
- Registered nurses (RNs)
- Respiratory therapists
- Any other clinicians who care for patients in a hospital
While attending doctors are usually independent contractors (not employees of the hospital), they can still be sued for medical malpractice.
