Emergency Room Errors Handling Complex Cases With Unparalleled Expertise

Emergency Room Error Lawyers in Columbus

Seek Justice & Compensation with Rourke & Blumenthal

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:

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.

    "You NEED attorneys who are experienced in TBI cases."
    Wonderful firm! We have worked with other attorneys in the past and Mike and Tim blew us away. If you have a brain injury in the State of Ohio, you NEED attorneys who are experienced in TBI cases, not just motor vehicle accidents or other personal injury matters. It makes a huge difference having an attorney who understands the medical, emotional, and financial issues a family suffers after a TBI. They are professional, compassionate, and great communicators. I would recommend this office to anyone.

    "Attorney Stoudt is the best lawyer I've ever worked with."
    Attorney Jon Stoudt is the best lawyer I've ever worked with. He did everything he could to help me. From the start, Jon was very responsive and always explained everything in terms I could easily understand. Jon's staff was also kind and responsive. I highly recommend Jon and would use him again in the future. Several months after being done with my case, another lawyer, handling a different part of the case, commented on how well Jon handled my civil suit.

    "Mr. Rourke and his team were extremely compassionate, knowledgeable and friendly"
    From the very beginning and to the very end of a long process, Mr. Rourke and his team were extremely compassionate, knowledgeable and friendly. I found them to be honest and easy to communicate with, day or night, weekday or weekend. Mr. Rourke was always professional but at the same time made you feel important and took as much time that was needed to explain the many steps in this process. Everyone of his team were very respectful and caring of everyone in my family involved in our case. I will have an admiration for Mr. Rourke and his team for the remainder of my life.

    "I always felt that he had my best interests as the top priority."
    Mr Timothy Mahler represented me after a personal injury auto accident. He was professional, knowledgeable, empathetic and experienced. I always felt that he had my best interests as the top priority. I was relieved from the intricate and time-consuming tasks related to the accident, free to focus on healing and recovery. He managed the complicated insurance and settlement to the best outcome. His team always treated me with respect. I would highly recommend Mr Mahler and his team. Thank you.

    "I will forever be grateful for their help!"
    I suffered physical injuries and a concussion from an auto accident in December of 2020. The team, from receptionist to attorneys, were nothing less than stellar, professional, kind, and hard working. The accident and aftermath were extremely stressful; but the Rourkes, Michael Senior and Michael Junior, helped me navigate the process while I focused on healing. For me, recovery from the accident was the most important part of the process. While I worked on recovering, Rourke and Blumenthal worked on negotiating a fantastic settlement for me. I will forever be grateful for their help!

    Our family is so grateful to have Rob Miller represent my daughter’s personal injury case. He is extremely knowledgeable about Ohio Law and was very patient with my numerous questions. Rob was always genuinely concerned about my daughter’s recovery and well being first.
