When a medical emergency occurs, we depend on the knowledge and skills of emergency room doctors and nurses to provide immediate life-saving care. Unfortunately, many emergency rooms across the country are overcrowded and understaffed. Many are pressured to not administer tests due to economic concerns. Any number of factors can come into play when considering the causes of emergency room error and subsequent injury.
Examples of Emergency Room Negligence:
- Paramedic or EMT negligence
- Nurse or physician negligence
- Failure to refer patient to specialist
- Failure to timely treat a medical condition
- Discharging a patient before it is safe to do so
- Failure to order proper tests during emergency room visit
- Failure to diagnose stroke, heart attack, or other health conditions
- Failure to administer important tests (such as blood count, X-rays, or MRIs)
When emergency room patients are treated with negligence, even simple problems can become potentially fatal. Patients have the right to trust physicians and nurses with their health, especially in situations where the stakes are high. Violations of that trust are worthy of a legal response—both to hold negligent parties responsible and to receive reparations to pay for medical costs and pain & suffering.
The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C. represents individuals who have been injured at any stage of their emergency room visit. This could involve negligence by an EMT, nurse, physician, surgeon, or any other individual who provides medical care. When we learn the specific circumstances of your injury, we will tailor our approach and help you seek the most positive outcome possible. You deserve quality legal representation from a New York City medical malpractice attorney.
