Emergency Room Error Lawyer in Hawaii
Can You File a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit over ER Mistakes?
Medical practitioners are expected to maintain a standard of care when diagnosing and treating patients. When a doctor, nurse, or other health care provider negligently causes injury, they can be held liable for their actions. This includes injuries caused by negligent emergency care providers.
Emergency room errors may involve:
- Failure to diagnose
- Delayed or wrong diagnoses
- Ineffective or no monitoring of a patient
- Medication errors
- Anesthesia errors
- Lab work errors
- Improper procedures
- Surgical mistakes
Errors in Emergency Departments can be caused by insufficient training, inadequate recordkeeping, and overworked staff. An unsanitary or poorly maintained facility can also result in infections.
If you or a loved one were injured because of substandard care you received in an emergency room, contact a Hawaii attorney from Bostwick & Peterson, LLP. Our attorneys can review your case and explain whether you may have grounds to file a medical malpractice lawsuit.
