An Emergency Room Injury Lawyer Can Protect Your Rights

In the U.S., between 80,000 and 120,000 individuals are killed each year as a result of medical malpractice. Because most cases of injurious or fatal medical mistakes occur when medical professionals are poorly trained and/or overworked, it’s no surprise that many of these tragedies occur in emergency rooms where doctors and nurses work long and, oftentimes, overwhelming shifts.

In fact, Pennsylvania was in the top 33 percent of states that had experienced the most emergency room visits during 2008. Reports show that, between 1999 and 2009, there was over a 20 percent increase in emergency room visits while, ironically, the number of emergency room sites throughout the state decreased by over 400.

Medical malpractice can result in permanent disabilities and, in the worst cases, wrongful death. Consequently, those injured by medical mistakes, including those that occur in emergency rooms, will likely have a personal injury claim that can entitle them to sizable settlements, as long as they can prove that their damages resulted from a medical professional’s (or a hospital’s) negligence or recklessness.

Building an Emergency Room Error Case

  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Brain damage
  • Nerve damage
  • Death
