Emergency Room Malpractice
Emergency rooms are fast-paced environments, and this can sometimes lead to chaos as everyone is focused on handling the most urgent cases first. In this environment, mistakes from miscommunication, under-staffing, and other factors are inevitable. When care falls below an acceptable standard, however, it becomes a case of medical malpractice.
Some different types of medical malpractice that can occur in emergency rooms include:
- Inaccurate assessment by triage nurses;
- Delayed treatment;
- Surgical errors;
- Anesthesia errors;
- Medication errors;
When The Becker Law Firm takes on an emergency room medical malpractice case, we start by examining the factors that may have contributed to the patient’s injury. Depending on the circumstances of the case, we may investigate medical charts, staff records, and video surveillance footage while seeking answers and building your case.
Our medical malpractice lawyers do this work because we care about our clients and a just verdict or settlement will make a positive difference in their lives. We strive to recover the maximum compensation you are owed for your injuries, pain, and suffering.
