The Heck Law Offices, Ltd. can help you seek compensation for hospital negligence that occurred in Mansfield or anywhere in north central Ohio.

What Is Negligence?
In a personal injury or medical malpractice case, it is necessary to prove negligence: that is, someone had a duty to exercise care, but did not fulfill that duty. Hospital negligence can include:
- Emergency room errors
- Improper staffing, including insufficient staffing and negligent hiring or supervision
- Failed maintenance of equipment or facilities
- Surgical errors
- Failure to establish and implement procedures or policies
- Poor communication
- Prescription errors
Circumstances like these seriously compromise quality of care and patient safety, and can result in injuries, hospital-acquired infections or even the death of the patient.
