When A Trip To The Emergency Room Leads To An Emergency

When you are hurt and need urgent medical care, you expect to leave the hospital in better condition than when you arrived. Although the emergency room is a chaotic place, busy conditions do not excuse life-threatening errors made by overwhelmed doctors and nurses. If you received subpar care or lost a loved one due to negligence in the ER, our lawyers can help you take action and find answers.

Common Errors We Handle

We intervene in many different situations on your behalf. Some of the emergency room errors our lawyers regularly resolve include:

  • Delayed treatment
  • Early discharge
  • Incorrect diagnoses
  • Improper medication doses

Our firm is also experienced in handling patient dumping scenarios, which occur when your doctor will not treat you due to lack of insurance or presumed inability to pay.

With our legal team's experience and knowledge, you can fight the adversity and seek maximum compensation for damages without fear of callous medical insurers or aggressive defense.
