Drug & Alcohol Rehabilitation Facility Errors
The attorneys at Rosenblum & Reisman have successfully handled numerous claims against drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities and doctors that hold themselves out as being competent to treat patients with addiction problems. When a patient is admitted to a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility for treatment, that facility and the doctors and nurses at such facility owe that patient a duty to provide the patient with appropriate care. When a patient is injured or dies while in the care of a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility, the patient and/or their family may have a viable claim against the facility or the doctors and nurses that were responsible for the patient’s care at the facility. The same is true when a patient is treated by an addiction medicine physician on an outpatient basis.
Drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities that hold themselves out as being competent to provide detoxification treatment for patients have a duty to do so in a safe way and to monitor their patients closely during the detoxification process. If a patient suffers a brain injury or dies while in the care and custody of an alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility, the patient and his or her family may be able to recover a significant amount of money for the injury or death caused by the facility. The lawyers at Rosenblum & Reisman have the experience to handle these types of claims.
