Northwest Hospital Medical Center Malpractice Lawsuits

IMPORTANT NOTICE: We ask people with potential medical malpractice claims to fill out our Medical Negligence Questionnaire.  This allows you to gather and organize important facts that are critical to our evaluation of your potential claim.  Thank you.


Northwest Hospital & Medical Center is a full-service, community hospital, offering comprehensive medical, surgical and therapeutic services. The medical facility is know for providing innovative, technologically advanced, patient-friendly care. Northwest Hospital does a wonderful job helping thousands of people every year. But the facility is not free of incidents involving medical malpractice or hospital negligence. In fact, there are medical malpractice and negligence cases at Northwest Hospital every year.

Northwest Hospital & Medical Center is part of UW Medicine, associated with the University of Washington. For more information about UW Medicine, see our page on the University of Washington Medical Center.

It is not unreasonable to estimate that at least 1 percent of doctors in this country deserve some serious disciplinary action each year. This would amount to 7,703 physicians being disciplined each year, a number that, unfortunately far exceeds the actual number of physicians disciplined.

If you or a loved one have suffered injuries at Northwest Hospital and have a medical malpractice case, use our medical malpractice questionnaire to get started.

How Medical Malpractice Cases Work

In a medical malpractice case, when it comes to proving fault, it usually comes down to proving that the doctor or hospital was negligent when administering medical treatment, and as a result, you or a loved one suffered injury or harm. 

Medical malpractice cases are often complex and require the services of an experienced attorney. When dealing with a malpractice case, there are a few things that need to be established:

  • A doctor-patient relationship existed. The doctor must’ve had an obligation to the patient.
  • Proving negligent care. You will need to prove that the doctor did not meet the medical standard of care.
  • Prove an injury occurred. It must be proven that your injuries occurred as a result of the doctor’s negligence.
  • Proving damages. You must prove that you suffered as a result of the malpractice.
  • Prove all elements. You need to prove all elements above “by a preponderance of the evidence.” This means that it needs to be more likely true than not.

Types of Medical Malpractice

Proving a medical malpractice case is much different and more complex than with other personal injury claims. The facts surrounding your claim are based on past medical records and testimony from medical experts who are familiar with your type of case.

A “complex” case type simply means that expert testimony and medical records are a vital component to proving that the healthcare professional responsible for treating you did act negligently. The combination of strong medical evidence and qualified expert testimony gives victims the best possible chance of financial recovery.
