What laws surround medical malpractice in Connecticut?

Medical malpractice is a serious issue in Connecticut that affects many patients a year. Yet filing a claim against a negligent doctor in order to receive compensation can be tricky. These laws are extremely complicated, but understanding the basics is important.

Who is held responsible in a hospital negligence suit?

When mistakes are made in a hospital or other medical environment, the results can be devastating for the patient, even deadly. Errors can happen anywhere along the line, from doctors to anesthesiologists, nurses to pharmaceutical companies and anyone else involved in the process. Generally for a medical malpractice lawsuit you must be able to prove fault in one of these parties, but often multiple parties may be liable for the mistakes. Unless you are dealing with pharmaceutical company errors, most likely the suit will fall under hospital negligence.
