Emergency Room Mistakes Can Be Fatal

A person seeking help in a hospital’s emergency room (ER) does so out of urgency. People who visit the ER expect their injuries and/or ailments to be treated promptly and effectively. Emergency room patients expect a high standard of care and professionalism from ER staff and medical personnel. However, because of the highly stressful nature of their occupation, emergency room staff are constantly under a lot of pressure. This pressure often leads to medical mistakes and errors in the emergency room. Misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, erroneous reading of a medical chart or lab test, and failure to treat a heart attack are all common ER mistakes. Such mistakes can be severely hazardous and may even result in wrongful death. If you or a loved one has suffered injury as a result of an emergency room mistake, the ER staff responsible for your damages needs to be held accountable. Our ER medical malpractice lawyers can help. Call The Horwitz Law Group at: (312) 641-9200.
