Causes Of Medical Negligence In The Emergency Room

Many hospital emergency rooms are understaffed, resulting in patients not receiving the care they need. In some cases, this may cause further injury or illness to the patient and is negligence on the part of the doctor or nurse. Our lawyers know how to spot negligent behavior and its results.

Emergency room errors may include:

  • Emergency medical technician (EMT) errors
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Failure to order tests
  • Failure to follow up after discharge
  • Inadequate discharge instructions
  • Improper interpretation of X-rays
  • Improper interpretation of test results
  • Improper procedures

Any of these mistakes may cause further harm or illness to the patient and may result in permanent damage or death.

We work with medical experts to determine where the standard of care was deviated from during your emergency room visit and what the care should have been. We consult with life-care planners to forecast what continuing medical care may cost and what your potential loss of wages over your lifetime may be.
