Experienced Emergency Room Malpractice Attorneys

Emergency medical technicians (EMTs), doctors, nurses and other specialists are trained to respond quickly and work every day within this fast-paced environment. Even still, mistakes can be made, and unlike certain other medical situations, medical mistakes made in the ER can lead to catastrophic results, including brain damage, coma, stroke, heart failure or wrongful death. Common emergency room errors we have seen include:

  • Delay in diagnosis or misdiagnosis
  • Failure to properly evaluate a patient’s condition
  • Misreading test results or ordering the wrong tests
  • Failure to obtain or read a patient’s medical history
  • Delayed response due to understaffing or overworked employees
  • Failure to monitor a stabilizing patient

Our attorneys are committed to obtaining the highest amount of compensation available for the victims of emergency room errors and their families. Whether mistakes were made by EMT malpractice, doctor or nurse error, failed emergency equipment or other emergency room negligence such as understaffing, we have the experience and resources to pursue justice for the pain, suffering and other economic hardships you may have sustained as a result.
