Emergency Room Errors

Were You or a Family Member Harmed by Emergency Room Negligence?

If you or a loved one suffered harm due to the negligence or neglect of emergency room personnel, you may be entitled to compensation. Doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals in hospital emergency rooms must provide treatment within accepted standards of care. Failure to do so constitutes negligence, and these medical staff and facilities should be held accountable when their actions cause serious harm or wrongful death.

Understanding Emergency Room Errors

Emergency room errors can occur in various forms, including:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
  • Administering the wrong test, medication, or treatment
  • Failing to provide timely evaluation, diagnosis, referral, admission, or treatment

Examples of significant errors include:

  • Misdiagnosing a stroke as a headache
  • Administering a harmful dose of medication or the wrong medication
  • Failing to diagnose cardiac arrest in time for cardiology care
  • Failing to diagnose and treat unstable spinal injuries, meningitis, or epidural abscesses before paralysis onset
  • Failing to diagnose and treat infections before they progress to shock and death
  • Failing to diagnose and treat compartment syndrome before causing irreversible nerve damage
