Yes you can file a lawsuit if you were dropped off a gurney and suffer injuries. When a patient is dropped from a gurney, the injuries resulting can often be quite serious. Often times, when a patient is dropped, it is due to the fact that the medical staff was careless in the transport of the patient or when the patient is not properly strapped down on the gurney. When this happens, the patient and or the patient’s family can file a medical negligence lawsuit against the medical provider for the injuries suffered by the fall. These lawsuits often result in substantial settlements because of the serious nature of the injuries and lengthy course of medical treatment and rehabilitation.
