New Jersey Emergency Room Errors Lawyers

Medical Negligence Lawyers Serving New Jersey

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are more than 120 million visits to emergency rooms each year. In emergency rooms, people with all levels of illness or injury wait to be treated. Doctors, nurses and other professionals must make a number of decisions and follow appropriate procedures in order to ensure that all individuals receive appropriate care. In certain instances, the failure to provide this care can cause serious injury or death. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of an emergency room error, you have every right to seek compensation for your injuries.

Britcher Leone, LLC, in Glen Rock and Parsippany, serves people throughout New Jersey who have suffered ER injuries. Our law firm joins the disciplines of law and medicine to help people who have been injured by a medical professional to recover full and fair compensation. Through our efforts, we can force hospitals to improve their processes and provide a higher level of care.

Medical Negligence in the Emergency Room

Emergency room errors can involve any number of systemic or individual failures. One such failure involves errors in triage. Emergency room personnel must make accurate decisions in order to ensure that patients with the most severe conditions do not have to wait an excessive period of time to be treated. When patients are admitted to the ER, their injuries or illnesses should be quickly assessed in order to get some understanding of the severity of their maladies. Triage failures can prevent seriously injured individuals from receiving the care they need.

Another relatively common emergency room error involves a doctor's failure to diagnose a heart attack, stroke or other critical condition. In certain instances, the symptoms of heart disease are misdiagnosed as indigestion. Patients are sent home when they should be receiving immediate care. When patients present symptoms of these conditions, physicians and staff must perform the proper diagnostic tests and procedures.

Our lawyers have extensive experience handing medical malpractice lawsuits involving serious injury and wrongful death. We will carefully examine all available evidence, including medical records and emergency room logs, to properly investigate and prove a case. Our primary goal is helping you get the compensation you need for your injuries.
