Legal Options Available for Victims of Emergency Room Errors

Emergency Room Errors Have you been misdiagnosed, administered the wrong medication and/or end up sustaining long-term side effects after being treated in the emergency room? If you have sufficient reasons to believe that your condition worsened or that you sustained further injuries as a result of medical negligence, then it may be in your best interest to consult an emergency room error attorney before it's too late.

Due to the high volume of people who need emergency medical treatment, the prevailing atmosphere in emergency rooms can be quite chaotic, to say the least. Add that to the fact that there is a shortage of properly trained medical and non-medical personnel in most hospitals and you have an ideal breeding ground for some serious medical errors.

However, this is not to say that these things are bound to happen and that they should be admissible. On the contrary, doctors, nurses and staff are expected to provide quality care and service to their patients. They are bound by their legal obligations to recognize the symptoms of their patient's illness and administer the proper treatment or advise their patient to undergo follow-up tests, if the root cause of the problem cannot readily be established.

Most Common Types of Emergency Room Errors

The following are among the most common negligent practices committed in emergency rooms:

  • Misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose and delayed diagnosis of serious conditions, injuries and diseases
  • Medication and prescription errors
  • Incorrect reading of medical test results
  • Omission errors
  • Negligence
  • Delayed treatment
  • Patient dumping

Needless to say, these emergency room errors are quite unacceptable and may make matters a lot more serious than they already are.

Your Legal Options

Negligent medical professionals should be held accountable for their actions. As such, you need to contact an emergency room error attorney if you sustained damages and injuries related to such medical negligence. However, you may need to act immediately since most states have statutes of limitations for filing medical negligence claims.

Don't condone medical negligence. Uphold your rights and put a stop to these life-threatening negligent practices in our medical institutions.

If you have reason to believe that you have been the victim of medical negligence, please feel free to contact Remer & Georges-Pierre, PLLC at (305)416-5000 or visit http://www.miami-personalinjurylawyers.com for a free consultation.
