Charlotte Emergency Room Errors Lawyers
North Carolina ER Staff Negligence Attorneys
Emergency room errors are responsible for many injuries and deaths. Unfortunately, emergency room error is a common occurrence. The most common emergency room errors involve a misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, or failure to recognize the warning signs of a stroke, meningitis, or heart attack.
In many cases, hospital ER doctors and nurses are overworked and understaffed. However, that does not make them any less responsible for providing adequate medical care and attention. If their failure to properly assess the seriousness of a patient's injury or medical condition causes complications or even death, patient may be a victim of medical malpractice or medical negligence, and they, or their family, may be entitled to compensation.
Some serious emergency room errors include misdiagnosing or failing to diagnose and treat the following medical conditions:
- Heart Attack / Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) or other Cardiac Condition
- Infections including Sepsis and Meningitis
- Internal Bleeding or Hemorrhaging
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Open or Compound Fractures
Medical malpractice claims can be extremely complex and complicated, and your choice of attorney can have a serious impact on your ability to win your case and obtain full and fair compensation for your injury or the death of a loved one. Please choose carefully (visit our How to Choose a Lawyer in a Serious Injury Case page).
