Emergency Room Negligence

Emergency Room Personnel

When we have serious medical issues requiring immediate attention, we rely on emergency rooms to treat us and get us the help we need. Unfortunately, ER personnel don’t always provide appropriate care or do their jobs properly. When this happens, they should be held accountable.

Hospitals have a duty to staff emergency rooms with qualified doctors and medical personnel that can handle patient traffic. Regardless of any extenuating circumstances, overcrowding, or under staffing, ER personnel should follow standard health and safety protocols and procedures to ensure that the medical care they provide is both safe and effective.

When things go wrong, patients fall victim to:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delayed diagnosis or failing to diagnose altogether
  • Delayed treatment, or none at all
  • Failing to evaluate patient for underlying illness or injuries
  • Neglecting to monitor patient
  • Laboratory errors
  • Surgical mistakes
  • Prescription errors
  • Incompetent use of medical equipment
  • Patient dumping

ER negligence can result in an exacerbated condition and a weakened body, in secondary injuries that become more severe than the initial medical issue, or in improper or ineffective treatment. Those responsible should compensate the injured patient for medical costs, pain and suffering, and lost wages resulting from such carelessness.

For five and one-half years you never tossed in the towel.

Should my son become half the lawyer as those I have met at your firm he will be successful.

My oldest son just passed the Colorado Bar. I firmly believe that should my son Chris become half the lawyer as those I have met at your firm he will be successful.

Your advice is very valuable to me.

Just wanted to formally thank you for taking the time to discuss the area of class action. I wish you the best with everything. It has been a pleasure getting to know you and everyone at Sommers Schwartz.

You did a great job.

Thank for all you did in my case, Kevin. You did a great job.

I felt that within a short period of time, they fully understood my case, and advised me as to the best possible courses to take with the best possible outcomes.

I appreciate the team effort provided.

I would like you gentlemen to know that for those of us that have been violated and need legal assistance, we must often wait for justice in quiet desperation. As such, the words I used above “confidence and comfort” came only from you and your team.

You are outstanding!!!

I was so impressed with your knowledge of the law and the way you were able to step back and look at all the options while explaining it to me in layman terms. I would recommend you to anyone who is or has been a victim of workplace harassment, discrimination or any other employment issue.

I will always recommend Mr. Watkins and Sommers Schwartz.

After meeting Mr. Watkins in person and working with him during the proceedings, I realized that the words in his website bio were true. He is a FIGHTER for his clients. No matter what time of day I called, he immediately returned my call. I am glad I made an EXCELLENT decision in selecting him.
