Emergency Room Mistakes Are Deadly

Emergency rooms are, by their very nature, inherently chaotic with dozens and often hundreds of workers frantically going about their work. In such an environment, mistakes can, and often do, happen. In fact, nearly half of all medical malpractice claims result from injuries suffered in emergency rooms.

The most common emergency room mistakes, nearly all of which are preventable with even minimal care and attention, include the following:

  • Negligent paramedics
  • Delayed Diagnosis, Misdiagnosis, and failure to diagnose
  • Surgical mistakes
  • Contaminated blood transfusion
  • Failure to take a sufficient patient history
  • Failure to perform a thorough physical assessment
  • Failure to detect life-threatening illnesses or injuries
  • Failure to order appropriate diagnostic testing
  • Rushing into treatment and failing to consider alternatives
  • Failure to timely consult specialists in a timely manner
  • Laboratory errors
  • Patient dumping (passing a patient from doctor to doctor)
  • Failure to properly observe a patient
  • Failure to fully care for a patient
  • Medication mistakes
  • And much, much more

Regardless of how the emergency room mistake was made, it can, and often does, have deadline consequences.

Those Injured by a Medical Professional’s Negligence May Have Multiple Claims

Depending on the specific facts of the case, those injured by a medical professional’s negligence may have claims against multiple defendants, including the physicians and their staff, the nurses and their staff, the hospital, the designer, manufacturer, and distributor of any medication or medical equipment utilized in the injured patient’s care, and many others.

If you or a loved one have been injured by a medical professional’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for past, present, and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and much, much more. Our goal is not just to secure compensation for your immediate needs, but to ensure that your future needs are protected as well.
