Emergency Room Errors Attorney in Dallas, TX

Injured by an ER Mistake? Call Our Medical Malpractice Legal Team!

Injuries and illnesses can arise unexpectedly. While people schedule doctor appointments for checkups, emergencies cannot wait. That is why we go to the emergency room (ER). Given the volume of patients passing through, the ER is inherently chaotic. Doctors and nurses pass from one person to the next, trying to diagnose and treat. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate an average of 136.3 million people annually visit the emergency room in the United States. If a hospital is not well staffed or physicians not well trained, serious injuries and wrongful death can occur.

If you were injured because of an emergency room mistake, our Dallas medical malpractice lawyers can help. We have years of experience protecting the rights of victims. We take the time to get to know your case and provide the representation you need! To us, you are more than just a client, you are family.

Common Emergency Room Errors

Because of the sheer mass of people vying for medical attention, emergency rooms can be overwhelming. The average doctor is estimated to spend approximately 11 minutes with a patient during a routine visit. With the number of patients emergency room staff must attend to, it is easy to make mistakes and errors.

Common emergency room errors include:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Misreading lab and test results
  • Judgement errors
  • Patient dumping
  • Delayed prognosis or diagnosis
  • Ignoring symptoms
  • Paramedic and EMT neglect

Such mistakes can lead to severe injuries. Misdiagnosis and wrongly read tests can result in strokes, heart attacks, worsening side effects, and more. If a doctor is not careful, some patient may die because of negligence.

Causes for ER mistakes include:

  • Overcrowding
  • Understaffed facilities
  • Lack of equipment or resources
  • Not checking patient’s medical history
  • Fatigue
  • Neglecting patients or making them wait too long
  • Lack of training

Do You Have a Case?

In order for a case to hold in court, the plaintiff must show that they sustained serious injuries or their loved one wrongfully died because of an emergency room error. They must also prove that the doctor, medical staff, or hospital was the reason for the damage. If this occurred, you may be eligible to seek compensation for a medical malpractice suit.
