Stand For Yourself After Suffering Hospital Negligence
Hospitals are licensed by the state in which they operate. They are required to adhere to certain guidelines and procedures. When injuries occur due to negligence on the part of nurses, radiologists, doctors and staff, the hospitals they work for can be held financially liable.
To expose negligence and violations of standard treatment protocols that occur in hospitals, the medical malpractice attorneys at DeVore, Acton & Stafford, P.A. in Charlotte consult medical experts and private investigators in reviewing the actions of hospital staff. We subpoena medical charts, staffing reports, even video footage when available to determine why instructions weren’t followed, symptoms were ignored or unsanitary conditions were allowed to persist.
When negligence on the part of hospitals results in serious injuries, don’t expect them to volunteer to pay for your disability, lost wages, unnecessary suffering or additional medical expenses. Contact hospital malpractice attorneys at the law office of DeVore, Acton & Stafford, P.A. and demand the compensation you deserve.

When Hospitals Deny Neglect
Hospitals are usually very concerned about their reputations. When malpractice or negligence occurs that results in serious injuries or death, they face not only an expensive lawsuit, but also state and federal regulators and lawmakers. At DeVore, Acton & Stafford, P.A., our attorneys aren’t bashful about contacting the attorney general’s office or state medical board.
Since negligence often indicates a pattern of cutting corners or lack of administrative oversight, alerting state officials and regulators to problems can be an effective means of leveraging your case while calling attention to a public threat.
Not Sure What Step To Take Next?
Due to tort reform, medical malpractice cases can only proceed after a preliminary finding of negligence has been established regarding the actions of a doctor or other health care provider. If you have been injured while staying in a hospital, contact the hospital negligence attorneys at DeVore, Acton & Stafford, P.A. today. We’ll evaluate your case and prepare all necessary information in providing grounds for proceeding with your case.
