Emergency Room Malpractice Attorneys

The emergency room (ER) is a fast-paced environment. The doctors and nurses who work there are often forced to make split-second decisions, often in matters of life or death. However, this does not provide an excuse for carelessness. When an emergency room error is the result of negligence on the part of a medical professional, the victim has the right to seek compensation with the help of an experienced medical malpractice attorney.  At The Sanders Law Firm in Covington, we have handled these matters since 1972.

 Types Of Emergency Room Errors

Most errors that occur in emergency rooms involve misdiagnosis of a serious medical condition. One common example is a patient going to the ER and complaining about chest pains. The patient may be diagnosed with gas or a similar stomach issue, only to suffer a life-changing or fatal heart attack after leaving the ER. Similar situations frequently occur with strokes, infectious diseases and other major medical conditions.

 Investigation of ER Negligence Claims

These cases are challenging. In order to be successful, our lawyers must not only prove that an emergency room doctor or nurse failed to do what any of his or her colleagues would have done, but also show that, had the proper steps been taken, the medical issue would have been prevented. To do so, we will likely have to enlist top medical experts to help us investigate and analyze the case. We will bring in leaders in ER medicine to make certain that we understand all the facts and are able to build a successful claim.
