Emergency Room Error Attorneys - Serving Lake County Indiana
Fighting For Emergency Patients And Getting Results
Emergency rooms are busy places, full of critically injured patients from all walks of life, with all manner of illness. The primary role of an emergency room doctor is to stabilize patients and ensure that major organ systems are functioning properly.
Rather than specializing in a particular body system, ER physicians must maintain an intimate understanding of all body systems, and they are often forced to make split-second decisions with little or no understanding of a patient’s medical history.
Despite these circumstances, physicians, nurses and other ER staff are still expected to practice a certain standard of care. Preventable mistakes and negligence on the part of these medical professionals can lead to catastrophic injuries or wrongful death.
We understand the complex nature of these situations and work with highly qualified, independent medical experts to help us uncover the truth of what really happened. If we find that malpractice occurred in your case, we will aggressively pursue compensation for your losses, including medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages.

ER Doctor Errors · ER Mistakes And Misdiagnosis
Statistical evidence shows that the majority of physical complaints result from non life- threatening conditions. As a result, when busy ER doctors hear hoofbeats, they often look for horses rather than zebras. Unfortunately, an ER physician’s failure to complete a thorough physical examination of each patient can result in serious injuries that could have been prevented.
Our attorneys represented a young boy whose testicular torsion was misdiagnosed in the ER. He later lost his testicle. We also represented a client whose appendicitis was misdiagnosed in the emergency room. Her appendix ruptured and surgeons had to remove a large portion of her colon as a result. We also represented the family of a man who went to the ER with heart palpitations and was told to stop drinking caffeine. He died three days later.
