Emergency Care Errors

When you are taken to the hospital for emergency medical treatment, it is the EMT and emergency room staff's responsibility to make the proper diagnosis that rules out the worst possible condition first. When we place our lives in the hands of trained, licensed medical technicians and physicians, we have the right to expect proper care and treatment. Yet every year, thousands of people die in America because they were misdiagnosed and sent home with a life-altering or life-threatening condition.

We work with the most-recognized, independent medical experts to investigate and prepare medical malpractice cases. Judges, hospitals and doctors know that the cases we prepare for trial have merit and involve real injuries that result from real negligence.

If you suffered a significant injury because you weren't diagnosed or treated in a timely manner at an emergency room, make an appointment to talk to us right away. We will give you an honest evaluation of your case and will not accept your medical malpractice case unless we are confident that your claim for medical negligence is legitimate and deserving of financial damages. Emergency medicine errors that can occur include:

  • Misdiagnosis and/or delayed treatment of heart attack and stroke
  • Improper or unsafe medications
  • Injury resulting from unsafe transport techniques
  • Emergency surgery errors
  • Birth injuries to baby or mother resulting from errors during emergency delivery
