Emergency Room Errors

Rely on our experienced medical malpractice attorneys

Emergency rooms in hospitals can be chaotic places. People with serious or life-threatening injuries or illnesses are regularly brought into emergency rooms at all hours of the day or night for immediate medical treatment.

Unfortunately, mistakes sometimes happen in emergency rooms, and those incidents can have serious or fatal consequences. And in many cases, these mistakes occur because of the reckless or negligent behavior of surgeons, doctors, nurses and other emergency room workers.

Common emergency room errors

Emergency room errors can cover a wide range. Some of the most common cases we handle at our law firm involving emergency room errors include:

  • Evaluation and diagnosis errors – The ER staff fails to fully evaluate a patient’s condition in a timely manner. The ER staff delays diagnosis, fails to diagnose or misdiagnoses a patient.
  • Laboratory and medication errors – Laboratory tests can be lost, mishandled or misread. The wrong prescription can be given to a patient.
  • Negligence and delayed treatment – A patient may not be treated in time, despite having been in the emergency room for quite a while.
  • Surgical errors – Mistakes in surgical procedures can be particularly harmful, leading to serious physical injuries or illnesses, or even wrongful death in many cases.

There are many other reasons why emergency room errors occur. And each one of them requires its own unique approach. That’s why it’s important to talk to an attorney at our law firm as soon as possible to learn more about the legal options available to you.

How we can help you

You might think you don’t need a lawyer if you or a loved one was harmed due to mistakes made by medical professionals in an emergency room. But the reality is most doctors, nurses and other emergency room workers often refuse to admit they did anything wrong.

Insurance companies try to use that information to their advantage. Specifically, they try to avoid paying injury victims like you and deny your claim. As a result, you could end up losing out on the thousands or millions of dollars you deserve for your emergency room error injury.

That’s not right. You shouldn’t have to pay for your follow-up treatment and other losses out of your own pocket. That’s why we take such cases so seriously. As your attorney, we can aggressively investigate your case. If insurance companies or anyone else refuses to cooperate, we’re prepared to take them to court.
