Hospital negligence is a type of medical malpractice that involves improper conduct on the part of the hospital, as opposed to an individual doctor or other healthcare provider. Injuries resulting from hospital negligence can be catastrophic and, in the most unfortunate instances, deadly – and, sadly, they are disturbingly common in the United States. At the law firm of Hodes Milman Liebeck, we are committed to holding medical facilities accountable for malpractice or negligence. Serving California, including Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino and Riverside counties as well as throughout Arizona, a medical malpractice lawyer at our firm can provide diligent legal guidance for hospital negligence victims. Our team emphasizes meticulous preparation and aggressive representation, and we have the knowledge and experience necessary to successfully represent even the most complex claims.
Types of Hospital Negligence
Patients must be able to count on hospitals to provide a certain standard of care and safety, yet this is not always the reality. Hospital negligence can take many possible forms, commonly resulting from:
Lost records or test results
Hospital negligence can result in a number of unfortunate and often preventable injuries, including birth injury, injury stemming from misdiagnosis of a condition, and other serious forms of personal injury. The team at Hodes Milman Liebeck understands the devastating consequences of hospital negligence. Injuries sustained from medical negligence in a hospital setting can be permanent, negatively impacting the victim’s life or necessitating lifelong medical care.

Filing a Medical Malpractice Claim
To have a valid hospital negligence claim, it must be shown that the level of care provided to the victim fell below a reasonable standard. Additionally, a successful medical malpractice claim must prove causation. This means that the link between the substandard care and the victim’s injury or death must be clearly demonstrated. Due to the multifaceted and complex nature of medical malpractice claims, it is important to hire a lawyer with extensive experience and resources related to this area of law. A positive outcome often relies on the ability and knowledge of your legal team. At Hodes Milman Liebeck, our lawyers have helped countless victims, and we can help you understand and assert your rights.
Compensation for Hospital Negligence

Additional medical expenses
Pain and suffering
In hospital negligence cases involving the wrongful death of a family member, a claim can also seek compensation for the following:
Lost future wages
