Expectations From Hospitals

Attorneys sometimes become angry upon hearing about a slip and fall situation that occurred at a Florida hospital. Why? They realize the responsibilities that hospitals have to keep patients and others safe.

Attorneys and the public expect a certain level of care and protection from hospital personnel from the moment they start caring for a patient.

Hospital staff and administrators have specific protocols and safety rules that they are supposed to follow at all times, throughout the hospital, including patient rooms, labs, dining areas, corridors, and other areas.

Who Is Liable For A Hospital Slip And Fall Accident

When hospital employees violate those protocols and safety standards and someone gets injured in a hospital slip and fall accident, the hospital becomes potentially liable for injuries experienced as a result.

This is true whether the injured individual is a patient or individual visiting a patient.

There are recent cases where individuals visiting a patient received large judgments after consulting an attorney and filing a claim against the Florida hospital where a slip and fall injury occurred due to the negligence of the hospital.

Big Business Hospitals Are Not Exempt From Slip And Fall Claims

When an injured individual contacts an attorney specializing in hospital slip and fall claims, the attorney knows that hospitals are big business, with many hospitals falling under large umbrella corporation ownership.

They know the responsibilities that hospitals have to protect patients and visitors and the possibility of the hospital having to pay injured parties that experience a slip and fall accident at their hospital.

Patients are not always able to care for themselves and sometimes need special precautions such as help going to the bathroom, assistance with showering or walking. Some patients with conditions such as dementia need extra precautions.

When patients receive injuries because they slip and fall, the big business hospitals know they likely failed in providing required safety mechanisms that are supposed to keep patients safe. It does not matter whether the failed protocols involve safety bars not put in place, the call button not being where the patient can reach it, or staff not responding quickly enough when a patient needs assistance.

Hospital Slip And Fall Accidents Involving Medications

Another aspect of these types of cases involves medications.

When a doctor fails to note side effects of medications that warrant extra safety precautions, this is potential negligence because no one assisted the patient experiencing side effects that then slips and falls due to dizziness, balance issues or other medication side effects.

Patient Rooms And Other Areas

How Do I Know if I Have a Valid Hospital Slip and Fall Claim in Florida?
When people visit loved ones in the hospital, they should not experience injuries because of water or objects on the floor or because of other safety issues that put them at risk.

Poor lighting in patient rooms or other areas also possibly contribute to slip and fall cases.

Contact An Attorney Specializing In Hospital Slip And Fall Cases

When you contact a hospital slip and fall attorney, they know how to take on big business hospitals.

If the hospital violated safety rules and procedures, discuss these issues with the attorney. There is probably a good chance that there is a valid slip and fall claim.

This past Tuesday, I got into a car accident that was frankly, quite scary. The experience left me disoriented, shaken, and overwhelmed with what "next steps" needed to be taken. Thanks to Nicole Pearlman, and the whole Denmon & Pearlman team, I didn't have to worry about those next steps. They quickly took over and set me up with medical appointments, a rental car, car inspection.... leaving me the ability to focus on spending those initial hours processing the accident and later, days spent on healing physically and emotionally. In a world where billions of people reside and yet we still often feel alone, that was never the case during this chaotic week. Never did I once feel alone in this whole process and I am incredibly thankful for their kindness to my nephew and I and their expertise in these matters. Denmon & Pearlman, especially Nicole Pearlman, WILL be there for you during life's most challenging experiences.

I had to resolve an issue with real estate created by my divorce lawyer’s mistake. We interviewed 4 other attorneys who were non commital about what they could do, a couple said I should pay off my ex to resolve.Paul Knudsen in the New Port Richey office looked at the case and felt we had a valid case and was confident he could help. He did just that ! Resolved the situation AND got half of my legal fees from my ex. He’s very smart and well respected in the courts. Definitely has our highest recommendation!!

Nicole Denmon handled my criminal defense case and her tenacity at getting the desired result exceeded far beyond what I ever thought to hope for. Even after I had given up, Nicole persisted in negotiating my case until she was able to get the ideal outcome for me. I have never had an attorney fight for me the way that Nicole did, and weeks later I am still amazed at the perseverance and level of dedication shown by Nicole and her supporting staff. Thank you Nicole!
