Emergency Room Errors
Did You or a Loved One Suffer NY Emergency Room Errors? Let a Skilled Lawyer Stand Up for You!
It’s everyone’s worst medical nightmare—having to be taken to the emergency room by ambulance and in the rush of treating patients, the ER doctor or nurse makes a mistake, causing you a medical injury. You might have been misdiagnosed and given the wrong medication that conflicted with one you were already taking, and it nearly cost you your life. Or perhaps the EMS technician wrote down incorrect symptoms on your medical chart and the staff rushed you into surgery for the wrong procedure. In the chaos of overloaded emergency departments, anything can happen. Patients’ charts can be switched. Medication mistakes or mix-ups can be made. It all adds up to a medical malpractice case, and we are the seasoned personal injury lawyers to handle it. If you need a New York emergency room error lawyer, call us now: (800) 692-3717.
Medical Malpractice Includes ER Mistakes—and Requires a Fierce New York Attorney
Just because the emergency department waiting room is full, the ER is understaffed or the EMS crew didn’t communicate your symptoms correctly to the supervising doctor, there is no excuse for ER errors. Your life was in the hands of the healthcare practitioners caring for you, and you trusted them to fulfill their Socratic oath and do no harm. But you were harmed by their medical carelessness and are now suffering the pain and/or illness of their professional mistake, along with the emotional trauma that goes along with that sort of ordeal.
Don’t put up with ER slip-ups, no matter how minor it might seem now. You could have been exposed to a contaminated needle, bacteria or virus germs on top of the surgical or pharmaceutical danger they put you in.
