New York Emergency Room Error Attorneys

Providing the Tireless Advocacy You Need

When a doctor, a surgeon, or a hospital acts carelessly or fails to act in time, it can result in a patient being seriously injured and/or permanently disabled. Emergency room errors are far more common than many people realize—and the consequences can be catastrophic. In severe cases, an emergency room error can cost a patient his or her life.

If you believe you or your loved one is the victim of an emergency room error, contact Simonson Goodman Platzer PC as soon as possible for a free consultation. We can help you identify if you received substandard care in the emergency room, and we can work to hold the negligent party/parties accountable.

Examples of ER Errors & How They Happen

Emergency room doctors, nurses, and personnel are held to a different standard of care than health care providers working in less-stressful and time-sensitive environments, such as pharmacists or primary care physicians. ER doctors are often required to make fast decisions and prioritize patients in a way that provides the greatest level of safety and care for everyone involved. That being said, they are still required to do everything that another competent ER doctor could reasonably be expected to do when it comes to treating patients. When they fail to provide such care, and patients suffer as a result, they can be held liable for negligence.

The most common examples of emergency room errors include:

  • Wrong diagnosis
  • Late diagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Medication mistakes
  • Early discharge

Emergency room errors made by hospital doctors and nurses—such as failure to diagnose a heart attack, appendicitis, or stroke—injure and kill patients every day. Additionally, if a nurse gives a patient the wrong medicine or forgets to consider how multiple drugs can interact in a patient, the error can seriously compromise a patient’s health and well-being.

Why You Need an Emergency Room Error Attorney

Whether you or a family member is suffering as a result of an emergency room mistake, a medication error, or a misdiagnosis, late diagnosis, or missed diagnosis, you could have grounds to bring a medical malpractice suit against the doctor or institution responsible for your pain and suffering. However, doing so is a very complex process.

Hospitals and their insurance providers will often go to great lengths to protect their staff and avoid paying out claims. When you are dealing with the aftermath of an emergency room doctor or nurse’s negligence, taking on a major insurance provider and its defense team should be the last thing on your mind. Instead, allow our New York emergency room error lawyers to handle your case on your behalf.

When you trust your case to our team, one of our experienced and proven partners will be directly involved every step of the way. We work with medical experts and other specialists in order to obtain expert testimony regarding the standard of care, how it was breached, the nature of your injuries, and the extent of suffering you have experienced and will continue to deal with in the future. From there, we are able to build a comprehensive case aimed at maximizing your recovery.
