Avenues of Liability – Who Can Be Held At Fault

According to published studies, 50% of falls occur in patients who fall repeatedly. More so the incidence of falls and fall-related costs continue to rise as our population ages. Nursing home staff and hospital nursing care who are aware of a proclivity of a patient to fall owe a duty to take necessary and warranted preventative measure aimed at significantly reducing the incidence of future fall. Liability against hospital staff and hospital administrators can take place if a fall results from the failure of a hospital take the necessary measure required. A secondary avenue of liability can take place when the administration fails to adequately and appropriately staff a hospital. Establishing Liability – Negligence of Hospital Staff and Administration: The vast majority of personal injury cases including injuries taking place in a hospital or medical care facility setting are based on a negligence cause of action. Negligence requires proving five essential elements in the court of law.

  • The at-fault party (defendant) owed the victim a duty of care.
  • The at-fault party breach or violated in some way his or her duty of care.
  • The violation or breach of the duty of care resulted in the accident (ie fall from bed).
  • The incident caused significant injury to the victim.

DTLA Client Review

“Farid was great! My boyfriend and I retained him in April 2017, as we were rear ended on the I101 . Our car was totaled and we were badly injured. On a family member’s recommendation, we took a chance and contacted Farid for help with the process. After the whole ordeal, the last thing we wanted to do was deal with insurance companies.”
