Springfield Emergency Room Malpractice Lawyers
Southwestern Missouri Emergency Room Negligence Attorneys
When you are taken to the hospital for emergency medical treatment of an injury or illness, 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.
Do You Have a Legitimate Medical Malpractice Claim?
The law presumes that every patient is responsible for taking ownership of his or her own body. If you have made every attempt to seek medical care, but the physician or health care provider failed to act in accordance with the standards of the medical profession in your region, you may have a case for medical malpractice.
If you or a loved one suffered an injury because of inadequate or inappropriate care by an emergency medical technician or while in the care of an emergency room medical staff, talk to an attorney on the personal injury trial team at Hall Ansley Rodgers & Sweeney. With more than 150 combined years of experience and knowledge guiding us, we have earned recognition for integrity and results. Our team combines decades of medical malpractice litigation experience to provide tenacious, knowledgeable representation. We are proud of our record for recovering many of the most significant jury verdicts and insurance settlements in Missouri.
Both David Ansley and Debbie Dodge separately represented two ladies who presented to the emergency room with stroke-like symptoms and were discharged without ruling out stroke. Both individuals suffered from a stroke as a result of taking birth control. By pursuingthese actions, perhaps the hospitals have changed their protocol. Obtaining information about birth control is important in treating women so that a serious condition may be ruled out.
Integrity and Merit in the Courtroom
Our lawyers know that prospective jurors (if your case goes to trial) are likely to be sympathetic to an overworked emergency room team. It is a common practice to offer evidence that confuses the complex technical and medical issues, while blaming the victim for ignoring medical symptoms until it is too late. That's why our name and reputation for integrity make a difference in the medical malpractice cases we handle. We work with many of the region's most-recognized independent medical experts to investigate and prepare your case. 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 Are Not Sure About Your Case, It Makes Sense to Talk to Us
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 have every confidence that your claim for negligence is legitimate and deserving of financial damages.
