When The Emergency Room Staff Make Serious Mistakes
Everyone dreads going to the emergency room, but you expect to get the medical attention you deserve. If you have suffered a serious injury because you did not receive proper care at the emergency room, it could be a case of medical malpractice. An experienced lawyer can protect your rights and help you get fair compensation.
At Jacobs & Dow, LLC, our New Haven emergency room malpractice attorneys help people across Connecticut protect their rights after an ER error has led to a serious injury or illness. Emergency rooms have to see to your injuries in a timely manner, and the failure to do so is often the result of negligence.
Emergency Room Malpractice
Many emergency rooms are overcrowded, which means the staff is overworked. This leads to errors, some of which can lead to major injuries. For example, if a diabetic comes to the emergency room in need of a CAT scan, he or she has to take a contrast dye. However, there is a rule that diabetics cannot take their medication for four days after a CAT scan. If the hospital fails to notify a diabetic of this rule, that person could take his or her medication and experience kidney failure.
For more than 60 years, our firm has been protecting the rights of people who went to the emergency room to get better and ended up in worse shape because of malpractice. We have the resources and the financial means to conduct a thorough investigation into the factors that led to your injuries and the full impact of your injuries on your life.
