Can I Sue My Hospital for Negligence

Can I Sue My Hospital for Negligence

If you’ve been considering the question can I sue my hospital for negligence, you should know that you can sue a hospital for negligence for a variety of reasons. However, medical negligence is a complex issue so it’s probably best to get sound legal advice on how to how to sue a hospital from Solicitors that specialise in the area of medical and hospital negligence to see if you have a valid claim.


Wherever a medical practitioner is negligent and is employed by a hospital it may be possible to sue the actual hospital for negligence. If a Doctor working for a particular hospital makes a mistake that has serious consequences for a patient or group of patients, then it may be possible to sue the Doctor or the hospital (or both). In certain cases, it may be more applicable to sue the hospital rather than sue a Doctor or medical professional individually.

Every hospital of course has a responsibility to provide a certain level of care and service (duty of care), to every patient. Where this duty of care has not been to the proper level and this has led to harm of a patient then the hospital may be deemed to have been negligent. Examples of this may include issues such as incorrectly or poorly trained staff, insufficient hygiene standards or even unsanitary washing, bathroom or dining facilities. Then there are issues such as medical staff not being properly qualified or trained for the tasks they are performing, or incorrect treatment or misdiagnosis due to inadequate or sloppy procedural issues (bad admin, mis-reporting of test results etc.).

When issues such as these are encountered it may be more applicable to sue the hospital rather than a particular member of hospital staff. That’s where come in.
