The medical malpractice attorneys at The Levin Firm understand that the emergency room of a hospital is certainly not the first place any of us would like to find ourselves. When we or our loved ones end up there, we expect the best care from the medical professionals on staff. Our lawyers know that mistakes are made in the emergency room. This is a form of medical malpractice, which can have a devastating consequence for the patient. Emergency room medical mistakes can be serious and even life threatening. You need a lawyer to fight for you to correct that which was done wrong.
There are many different kinds of mistakes that could take place in the emergency room. Mistakes happen and injuries result when patients are not fully or properly evaluated, monitored or treated, or administered the wrong medication. The failure to keep an emergency room sanitary can also lead to disease transmission and infections. Any of these errors could cause serious injuries, perhaps even death, to the patient.
Another type of emergency room mistake occurs when the patient is diagnosed incorrectly. This can lead to the patient being given the wrong treatment, or being sent home without treatment for a life-threatening condition. Some commonly misdiagnosed conditions include heart attack, stroke, brain injury, pulmonary embolism, appendicitis, and pancreatitis. If you have been injured as the result of negligence in the emergency room, the experienced attorneys at The Levin Firm, are here to help investigate and pursue your claim.
In addition to these instances of medical negligence, many emergency rooms around the country engage in the intentional practice of refusing to treat, or not properly treating, patients who do not have health insurance. This practice is illegal and unethical, and can lead to inadequate treatment and, oftentimes, death of the uninsured patient. You have the right to receive emergency care regardless of your ability to pay, and if you have been denied this right, you need an attorney who will fight for your right to be compensated for your injury.
Representing clients who have been injured in the emergency room requires a team of lawyers, nurses and others trained to review the facts of these cases, including medical records. It can be very difficult to prove that even the most serious emergency room mistake is the result of medical malpractice. That’s why you need attorneys on your side to investigate medical records and find the best medical experts to examine the extent of your injuries. At The Levin Firm, we also work with highly-regarded experts to determine the type of medical malpractice and how and why it happened. At times, we will work with other law firms that have particular expertise to assure that our clients receive the most thorough and zealous representation.
When you need a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania or New Jersey personal injury attorney to represent you, a family member or friend who has fallen victim to an emergency room mistake due to medical malpractice, contact The Levin Firm, who represent every client zealously in order to obtain the best results possible in each case.
