Have You Suffered Injuries Caused by an Emergency Room Error?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates 115.3 million Americans are treated in emergency rooms annually. When a healthcare professional fails to provide adequate care, serious—often fatal—errors may result.
Of the 225,000 malpractice-related fatalities reported each year, almost half are emergency room errors. Typical errors include:
- Prescription Errors
- Bacterial Infections
- Errors Omission
- Delayed Diagnosis
- General Negligence
- Delayed Treatment
How Emergency Room Errors Happen
Doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals are dedicated professionals who work hard to provide their patients with the very best care available. In fact, it is every healthcare professional’s duty to provide the sick and injured with reasonable care that falls within accepted standards.
Unfortunately, many emergency rooms understaffed or ill-equipped. To make matters worse, doctors and nurses in these settings can easily find themselves overworked and fatigued.
Do You Have a Case?
When a healthcare professional fails to provide adequate care—and the patient suffers injury or death—that is medical malpractice. Those healthcare professionals who ignore their duty are guilty of medical negligence. Proving malpractice or negligence is complex—requiring significant hours of research and effort.
