Handling Complex Cases With Unparalleled Expertise
An emergency room can be a place of controlled chaos. Everyone there needs attention and they deserve it as soon as possible, no matter the circumstances. The medical staff—from doctors and nurses to front-desk clerks and paramedics—all must be at the best of their abilities at all times, never making a mistake. And yet, mistakes do happen, and far more often than anyone would like to imagine.
While not excuses, some of the most common reasons an emergency room error may occur include:
- Exhaustion from long hours
- Lack of communication
- Inexperienced medical team
- Carelessness or negligence
- Inadequate amount of staff on-hand
If you or a loved one has been a victim of personal injury due to an error in the ER, you deserve financial compensation for your pain and trauma. At Rourke & Blumenthal, we firmly believe that people need to be held accountable for their mistakes, especially when others are negatively affected. Backed by more than 150 years of combined legal experience, we have been putting our beliefs into action, winning more than $300 million dollars for our clients in some of the most hard-earned verdicts and settlements there have ever been. If you would like that top-level experience to have your back in your medical negligence case, contact us today.
Common Emergency Room Errors That May Have Caused Your Injury
Without proper control of the ER from management and staff, the frantic scene can turn disastrous as innocent people seeking aid suffer further injuries.
Certain mistakes that seem to occur more often than others include:
- Keeping a patient waiting too long for treatment
- Misdiagnosing patients
- Misreading test or X-ray results
- Prescribing medication that is in the wrong dosage or is altogether incorrect
- Discharging a patient before all treatments are completed
- “Patient dumping,” or refusing to serve those who have no proof of insurance
- Surgical errors
Our Firm Can Hold Those Who Caused Your Pain Accountable
If you suffered a personal injury due to an emergency room error, you can take legal action to pursue financial restitution for your unnecessary misery. Even if you feel that the medical staff did their very best to prevent the mistake, it does not excuse them of liability, and it does not prevent you from seeking compensation. You will be going up against insurance companies and large organizations, such as the hospital itself, and it could be extremely difficult to succeed without an experienced Columbus emergency room error lawyer on your side.
Our record of success has given us a strong, respected standing in the legal field. We are proud to say that we don’t advertise on television and refuse to solicit injury victims by mail, as we know our reputation precedes us. Additionally, we are so confident in our abilities and we know you will be so impressed with our dedication and attention to detail that we offer free consultations to all of our prospective clients.
