Whether it’s surgical error, doctor error, nurse errors, hospital negligence, ER care negligence, or medical malpractice, emergency room malpractice is far too common. With the hectic, overcrowded nature of emergency rooms, you need to know that you are protected throughout your experience.
When you show arrive at a local emergency room you will usually not know anything about the people that will be providing you with care. Most of the time you will be unable to research the reputation of the staff of a particular ER, leaving your health and well being in the hands of the unknown.
Some examples of emergency room malpractice include:
- Prescription and medication errors
- Discharging seriously or critically ill patients too soon.
- Failure to properly diagnose stroke or heart attack in a timely manner
- Diagnosis errors
- Misreading MRIs, CTs and X-rays
- Use of contaminated equipment
Medical malpractice claims are notoriously complex and can involve state and federal regulations, standard procedures, hospital protocols, and multiple defendants. If you suspect that you or someone you love suffered as a result of medical negligence, it is important to work with a legal team who can initiate an immediate investigation.
We will consult with experts, review hospital procedures, collect medical
documentation, review client medical histories, and contact relevant witnesses.
At every stage of the legal process, your priorities will be our primary concern.
