Emergency Room Error Attorneys in Charlotte

Compassionate, Client-Focused Representation Since 1983

Emergency rooms have increasingly been used a point of primary care among many Americans. The influx of visitors means long wait times, mismanagement of patients, stressed or highly fatigued staff, low staff, shortage of hospital beds, rushing patients from one department to another, not spending enough time with patients to sufficiently obtain medical history, and failure to follow standard procedure. Each one of these may be the reason for an increase in emergency room errors that didn't have to happen; they were preventable.

If you believe you or your loved one suffered injuries or harm due to an emergency room error, including failure to treat, contact the Charlotte emergency room error attorneys at Charles G. Monnett III & Associates. You may have grounds for a medical malpractice claim; we can help you understand your legal options and seek the fair compensation you and your family deserve.

Contact us online or by phone at (704) 859-2003 today to request a free, no-obligation consultation. There are no fees unless we win compensation for you.

Common Emergency Room Errors

The most common emergency room errors involve misdiagnosis or failure to treat a patient’s condition. For example, an individual may visit the emergency room complaining of chest pain and shortness of breath only to be told they are having a panic attack and be sent home. The individual may leave the hospital and, shortly thereafter, suffer a heart attack. The emergency room staff’s failure to adequately recognize and respond to the signs of a heart attack could be classified as medical malpractice.

Other types of ER errors due to misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose include:

  • Acute coronary syndrome (ACS)
  • Stroke
  • Internal injuries to blood vessels or organs
  • Missed fractures or other injuries
  • Brain and spinal cord injury
  • Fever from infection, including sepsis and meningitis

Any of these and other common injuries and complications arising from emergency room errors can have serious, long-lasting, and even fatal implications. Individuals and their families should not have to face the consequences of improper emergency room treatment on their own.
