Emergency Room Negligence

Emergency room patients often need critical and time-sensitive medical care. Unfortunately, due to overcrowding, financial constraints, lack of resources and persistent understaffing, many emergency rooms are ill-equipped to provide adequate and comprehensive care. Vital symptoms of potentially life threatening conditions may go overlooked.

If you or a loved one has suffered lasting harm stemming from ER negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. Though no amount of money can undo your suffering, financial recovery can be a start. It can help set you on the path toward healing and recovery.

Devastating Consequences of Failure to Diagnose Heart Attacks and Other Common ER Conditions

Our New York law firm has handled numerous cases involving all types of emergency room errors. In many cases, medical professionals simply fail to detect symptoms of life-threatening conditions such as:

  • Heart attacks
  • Strokes
  • Appendicitis
  • Meningitis
  • Pulmonary embolisms
  • Sepsis
  • Aneurysms
  • Idiopathic cardiomyopathy
  • Cancer

In their rush to open up more beds, hospitals will sometimes even discharge patients with these deadly conditions without providing proper treatment. The consequences of such oversights can be devastating.
