We Seek Compensation for Injuries and Wrongful Deaths
The emergency room is a chaotic place, making continuity of care a challenge. Frequent interruptions in patient care and communication affect the staff's decision-making ability and reduce time spent with patients. Despite these issues, doctors, nurses and other ER staff are expected to practice an acceptable standard of care.
If medical negligence or an error causes a serious injury or wrongful death, the victim and his or her family may be entitled to damages. Like any medical malpractice claim, it is best to work with an experienced attorney in these cases.

Emergency room staff must perform triage on patients, determining who can be treated and released, who needs to be monitored and who needs to be admitted to the hospital immediately. A failure or error in this process can have devastating consequences.
Some of the most common ER errors include:
- Delay in treatment
- Failure to order appropriate diagnostic tests
- Failure to admit patient to the hospital
- Failure to call in specialty physicians
- Medication errors
- Failure to diagnose/delayed diagnosis
