Emergency Room Malpractice

emergency room malpractice

If you are sick, injured or in need of urgent and immediate medical treatment your only option may be to go to the emergency room. You most likely go the emergency room, urgent care center or acute medical care facility assuming that you will be properly tended to, cared for and accurately diagnosed. While this may normally be the case it is not out of the realm of possibility that you may be the victim of an emergency room error. Unfortunately emergency room mistakes can end in dire health consequences.
