Protecting The Rights Of The Victims Of Emergency Room Errors
In many ways, medical patients place their lives in the hands of their doctors. Nowhere is this more true than in the emergency room. Doctors have to make decisions quickly, but they have to be the right ones. If they are not, the patient may suffer devastating injuries or may not survive. When emergency room doctors’ decisions negatively impact the patient’s well-being, it can create grounds for a medical malpractice claim.
At the law firm of Young Ricchiuti Caldwell & Heller, our attorneys are highly skilled in the representation of emergency room patients whose health was compromised because of a doctor’s or staff member’s error. We review all of the medical records and any other documentation to build a strong case that illustrates the negligence that led to your suffering.
Seeking Justice For Southeastern Pennsylvania Medical Malpractice Victims
Malpractice can happen in many different ways and by many different people in the emergency room. If complete intake information is not gathered and conveyed to the medical team, it can impact the type of care that is administered. If the doctor does not properly interpret the patient’s description of the symptoms, does not order proper tests, fails to order proper treatment, or sends the patient home when they should be admitted to the hospital, it can lead to severe injury.
We closely examine every aspect of your emergency room case to determine whether the doctors or any other medical personnel failed to provide adequate care or violated a patient safety rule. If we find you were injured because your care was mishandled, we will take steps to recover compensation for any medical care or other damages that may be applicable to you.
