Emergency Room Negligence Lawyers in Detroit & Southfield Michigan

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.
