ER Errors leading to Medical Malpractice

ER Errors leading to Medical Malpractice

Friday, November 15th, 2013

Emergency rooms are one of the most common places for a medical error to occur. Many medical malpractice lawsuits arise from injuries or deaths that occur in emergency departments. Some of the most common types of emergency room errors include:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Wrong diagnosis
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Wrong medication given to the patient
  • Wrong medication dose given to the patient
  • Failure to read test correctly

Emergency room medical malpractice cases can be complex. They require the representation of a lawyer experienced in these types of cases. Mistakes happen all the time in ERs. In these fast-paced departments, ER workers have virtually no time to make important, possibly life-altering decisions. They must act quickly but competently to save lives. Honest mistakes can be made even when ER staff is providing excellent care. But sometimes, medical workers cause further injury or death in the ER because of negligence or carelessness.

If you or a family member was injured in an emergency department because of the negligence of a doctor, nurse or other staff, you deserve compensation for damages such as lost wages and medical bills.
