Timing is everything when you are faced with a medical emergency, especially in the ER. Doctors and nurses are trained to handle these often critical and stressful situations by attending to those that are in critical condition first. However, just because the ER is often crazy doesn’t mean that the patients in need of attention only get a very quick visit before the doctors will move on. Just because you are in the ER doesn’t mean there is room for mistake.
Emergency Room Accidents
At TSR Injury Law Firm we handle all instances of medical malpractice that you or a loved one may have been a victim to. ER mistakes should not happen and a failure to treat or diagnose properly can result in fatal and life threatening consequences down the road. Our Minnesota personal injury attorneys specialize in handing medical malpractice cases that occur in the ER such as:
- Failure to diagnose
- Emergency room negligence
- Failure to treat
- Complications due to a misdiagnosis
If you have faced a medical emergency, such as a pain in the chest, trouble breathing or a serious head injury, then seeing a doctor at the ER is the first step. However, in many instances, this is not the end of it. You may need to undergo further testing and follow ups to determine what caused this problem such as cat scans, x-rays, MRI’s, blood tests and ultrasounds. You may need to see a specialist and you may need to remain in the hospital or come back at a later date. It is the responsibility of the ER doctor to determine what the next plan of action is for treating your condition. If he sends you home without proper care, then you could be looking at a lawsuit.
