Our medical negligence team pursues lawsuits involving patient falls from gurneys and patients dropped from gurneys against hospitals and ambulances. These injuries can happen when a patient is dropped from a gurney during a transfer or simply dropped while being carried by medical personnel. This frequently happens when the medical staff is careless in the transport of the patient or when the patient is not properly strapped down on the gurney.
Common Injuries From Gurney Falls
The injuries suffered from a gurney fall are often very serious and can result in:
- Broken bones and fractured hips
- Back, Neck, and spinal cord injuries
- Closed head injury or traumatic brain injury
- Wrongful death
When a patient falls from a gurney or is dropped from a gurney, the patient and or the patient’s family should pursue a medical negligence lawsuit against the medical provider for the injuries that were suffered. These lawsuits often result in substantial settlements because of the serious nature of the injuries and the lengthy course of medical treatment and rehabilitation.
The statute of limitations for medical negligence lawsuits in Michigan is generally two years from the date of the incident. If you miss the deadline, you will be unable to pursue your claim. To avoid missing a deadline, you should contact the Michigan injury lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. immediately.
