Hospital Negligence


When you go to the hospital, you have a reasonable expectation that you will receive quality care. Unfortunately, too many patients are injured in hospital settings when the standard of care is not met. The hospital injury attorneys at D’Amico & Pettinicchi, LLC stand up for the rights of injured patients throughout Connecticut.

If you were injured in a hospital setting, we would be honored to hear your story and talk through your potential legal options. Contact us today to schedule your free consultation.


Hospitals are required to follow certain standards when it comes to patient care and cleanliness.

If they fall below these standards, the consequences can be severe. Our lawyers have an extensive understanding of the laws governing negligence in hospitals, including:

  • Infections
  • Lack of patient monitoring
  • Medication errors
  • Bad surgeries
  • Nursing errors
  • Emergency room errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Birth injuries
  • Radiology errors

In addition to following medical standards of care, hospitals are expected to maintain safe premises, like any other organization. If you were injured in a fall due to a spill or equipment left in a hallway, assaulted due to negligent security, or sustained any other injury, you may have legal recourse. We can help.


When you speak with us about your experience in the hospital, we’ll listen. Our goal is to understand what happened to you and explain your potential legal options. If we believe a preventable error caused your injury, we will investigate relentlessly to get to the bottom of what happened and hold the hospital and any other negligent parties accountable.

We’re often able to resolve these claims with a negotiated settlement, but we’re always ready to go to trial on your behalf, including practicing our strategies and honing our arguments in our in-house courtroom. Throughout the process, we’ll keep you informed but give you space to focus on healing. We’ll do the heavy lifting because we understand this isn’t just a case; it’s your life.

Remember, you need to take action promptly to hold the hospital accountable, before critical legal deadlines expire and evidence disappears. Contact us today to schedule your free consultation with a hospital negligence attorney.
