What is an Emergency Room Mistake?
Medical errors & mistakes can vary from many different things. These errors can include misdiagnosis, failure to detect a medical condition or mistakes from test results – however it is not limited to these mistakes.
If a doctor makes a mistake, even minor, it can leading to catastrophic or fatal consequences.
An example of this would be someone going in for a heart attack but does not appear to have any common symptoms and there is no EKG given. Well, if it is later proved that the individual did have a heart attack, this could create serious health issues. This would be considered a misdiagnosis.
Misdiagnoses can turn fatal. Unfortunately, these mistakes make the medical professional liable (to a certain extent). It is extremely expensive to pursue a medical malpractice claim. However, with appropriate evidence and an experienced attorney, you have a great case.
If you believe that you have been the victim of an emergency room mistake, you need the assistance of an attorney. Unlike a minor car accident, which could potentially be handled independently, a medical malpractice claim will (most likely) need the assistance of a lawyer.
