Emergency Room Errors

New York Emergency Room Malpractice Attorneys Emergency Room Errors

A trip to the emergency room is often prompted by the very event that the name suggests—an emergency. In such events, we rely upon the ER staff of doctors and nurses to use its skill and all reasonable care to efficiently diagnose and correct the illness or accident that warranted the trip. At our most vulnerable, our well-being is placed in the hands of these individuals, with little or no say as to the treatment we are to receive.

In some cases, ER doctors and nurses fail to use the requisite care in treating their patients. Granted, emergency rooms are by nature a hectic and confusing environment. These factors do not excuse errors in the ER that may lead to additional pain, suffering, and hardship. An act of emergency room negligence leading to further injury is a violation of the patient’s rights, regardless of outside influences that may cause this lack of care.

Emergency room errors can take many forms. Perhaps you or a loved one was discharged prematurely. The ER doctor may have failed to properly diagnose the condition that led to your trip to the emergency room. It could be a case of a doctor’s failure to provide proper tests or blood work during your emergency room visit. Or possibly you were injured on the way to the emergency room by a negligent paramedic. No matter the circumstance, an emergency room patient has the right to be treated with due care by his or her physician. If the physician fails in that respect, the patient has legal rights as well.

Client Reviews
Last year I was injured in an accident, and for the first time, needed the advice of an attorney regarding how to proceed. I was referred to Thomas Gallivan through a family member who is a lawyer in Massachusetts. I am beyond pleased with how Thomas handled my case. He was knowledgeable, professional, and although the case was not as straightforward as some, he used every resource to ensure a positive outcome. Thomas communicated with me regularly and I felt completely informed and confident in his ability. He expertly negotiated a fair settlement that I was very happy with. The entire experience was extremely positive, during a stressful time for me. Thank you Thomas. Melanie
