Emergency Room Errors

Representing New Yorkers Harmed by Emergency Room Errors

In an emergency room, every minute can count. In a rush to get to the next patient, ER doctors and nurses may overlook important symptoms and fail to diagnose a patient or release one who later suffers a life-altering injury.

Despite the hectic nature of emergency rooms, doctors and nurses still must follow the appropriate standard of care to protect patient safety and health. At Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, P.C., our attorneys are experienced in helping our clients maximize compensation for injuries resulting from emergency room errors or other medical negligence.

Common Emergency Room Mistakes

Our medical malpractice attorneys work with a network of medical experts, including emergency room physicians certified in emergency room medicine, cardiologists, neurologists and other physicians who can testify to the proper medical action that should have been taken in your case. Emergency room errors often result from:

  • Failure to properly triage a patient
  • Failure to treat a patient in a timely manner
  • Misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis or a failure to diagnose heart attacks, strokes, blood clots and pulmonary embolisms
  • Misreading or failure to read a medical chart or lab test results
  • Medication or prescription errors
  • Failure to refer a patient to the proper specialist

In some cases, a patient may have been denied treatment for an emergency medical condition or improperly discharged due to insurance concerns. Every patient who enters the emergency room is entitled to the same protections, regardless of whether he or she has insurance. If you failed to get the treatment you needed because of this, we can help bring a federal Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) action against the hospital or treating doctors.
