Helping You Take Steps Forward After Experiencing Emergency Room Negligence
When a person goes to the emergency room, it is because he or she has a condition that seems like it could be serious and needs to be addressed immediately. People expect that the doctors and nurses in the ER will treat the condition accordingly. Unfortunately, that expectation is not always met. This often results in a serious medical condition becoming even worse. At Kammholz Messina, LLP, our attorneys have decades of experience holding ER staff accountable for emergency room negligence. We bring our core values of integrity, creativity, personal service and excellence to these serious and challenging cases.
Misdiagnosis And Failure To Diagnose In The ER
Emergency rooms are very fast-paced and often short-staffed, but we do not consider these acceptable excuses for mistakes. Every patient should be treated properly. If someone comes in complaining of chest pains, that person should not be sent home until a full evaluation has been completed to rule out the possibility of a heart attack. If symptoms indicate the possibility of a stroke, the appropriate tests need to be conducted. Even if a specialist needs to be called in, everyone who comes into the emergency room should get an accurate diagnosis.
One significant problem in the ER is misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a serious medical condition, such as a heart attack, stroke, aneurysm, major infection or even a broken bone.
When Someone Is Sent Home Untreated
If you or a loved one has been sent home from an emergency room, only to suffer a heart attack, stroke or other medical condition, our lawyers can help. We understand that a condition that could have been treated has been made worse by the negligence of the ER staff. We hold staff accountable for their negligence.
In addition to cases involving incorrect diagnosis and failure to diagnose and treat, we handle cases involving medication errors and more. No matter what went wrong, we can help.
