Emergency Room Mistakes

ER Doctors and Personnel Can Make Dangerous Mistakes

Doctors and medical professionals have a duty to their patients.  No matter the environment, substandard care is never okay.  When doctors cut corners, ignore guidelines, and provide negligent care, patients suffer the consequences.

Perhaps nowhere are medical malpractice and doctor errors more likely than in the emergency room.  Understaffed facilities and overworked doctors and nurses lead to medical errors, missed diagnoses, and other emergency room mistakes that can cause serious injury or death.

When hospitals, doctors, and other medical professionals commit malpractice in the emergency room, Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA is here to help injured patients.  Contact our medical malpractice lawyers to discuss your injuries and claims if you or your family member were the victim of emergency room mistakes, including:

  • Missed Diagnosis (Including Failure to Recognize Heart Attack or Stroke)
  • Prescription Errors
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to Order or Perform Diagnostic Testing
  • Misreading/Failure to Read Test Results
  • Failure to Prioritize Emergency Condition

Emergency Room Mistakes Can Lead to Serious Injury or Wrongful Death

When patients go to the emergency room, it is often because of severe injury or sudden onset of painful or debilitating symptoms.  In emergency circumstances, a missed diagnosis, undue delay, or other medical negligence can cause severe, permanent, and even fatal complications.

ER mistakes can lead to many injuries and issues, including:

  • Heart Attack
  • Stroke
  • Exacerbation of Existing Condition
  • Infection
  • Brain Injuries

While injuries can differ in severity, all instances of medical malpractice should be reviewed by an experienced medical malpractice lawyer.  Our attorneys are skilled at identifying medical malpractice claims and causes, negotiating and litigating claims, and protecting your right to compensation for dangerous malpractice mistakes and injuries.

If you or your loved one suffered injury or wrongful death following an emergency room mistake, call or email Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA now for a free consultation.
