Hospital negligence can lead to injuries, illnesses and death

Modern medicine is a marvel, and San Diego is home to some of the best hospitals and medical facilities in the country. As such, the residents of the metropolitan area are often treated to the best care and most highly trained medical professionals in the nation. In this incredible age of advancing science and improving treatment options it is hard to believe that mistakes and negligence can be present in the actions of doctors, nurses and supportive medical staff.

However, the sad reality is that an unfortunate number of individuals are seriously harmed in hospitals and care facilities by the one thing science cannot completely eliminate: human error. When doctors make life-threatening misdiagnoses, when nurses give their patients the wrong medications and when medical care providers delayed assistance to people in need, significant medical misfortune can result.

While medical malpractice is the general field of personal injury law that covers incidents such as those mentioned in the previous paragraph, the subfield of hospital negligence also permits injured parties to not only pursue their losses from the medical practitioner who caused their harm but also from the medical facility in which those practitioners provided care. The Law Offices of Steven I. Kastner compassionately represents victims of medical malpractice and hospital negligence with dedicated service, legal knowledge and client-focused guidance.

Recovering from an injury or illness caused by hospital negligence can be expensive and overwhelming. Losing a loved one to a doctor's or hospital's mistake can be a tragic experience. The Law Offices of Steven I. Kastner are prepared to work with new clients who have suffered at the hands of negligent medical practitioners and facilities.
