What Type Of ER Error Harmed You?

Emergency room errors can happen for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, emergency room professionals lack the proper training or emergency rooms are understaffed. Other times, doctors and nurses are simply careless or negligent when performing procedures and providing treatment. Common emergency room errors may include:

  • Delayed diagnosis or a complete misdiagnosis of heart attack or stroke
  • Surgical mistakes, particularly mistakes caused by doctor or nurse negligence
  • Waiting room delays that cause further injury
  • Medication mistakes, including giving patients the wrong drug or dosage
  • Improper medical treatment during ambulance transport

Every year, thousands of people lose their lives because of substandard care by ER nurses and doctors.

Victims of emergency room malpractice, as well as their family members, need experienced legal representation to hold negligent emergency room personnel accountable. Litigation not only provides necessary compensation for medical treatment and lost wages but also provides closure to victims, and reinforces standards for high levels of emergency treatment and care.
