Emergency Room Errors
Syracuse Lawyers Helping Emergency Room Injury Victims
The health care system in the United States is broken. One of the places this is most clear is in emergency rooms across the country. In the last year, national news stories have reported emergency room deaths by people left untreated, the dumping of critically ill patients without proper insurance and any number of other medical malpractice issues.
At The Stanley Law Offices, we hold hospitals accountable for emergency room errors throughout New York state and Pennsylvania. Highly regarded in our field, our attorneys have over 90 years of combined experience. This equips us to handle even the most difficult hospital negligence cases successfully.
Why Emergency Room Errors Happen
Although the health care system in America used to be about patient care, it's now about profits. Hospitals are pressured to cut corners in every way possible in order to maximize profits. Emergency rooms are left understaffed, and doctors are overworked. In this situation, there are many ways that emergency room errors can occur:
- Failing to triage appropriately — learning the information necessary to take your condition seriously
- Failing to perform proper tests
- Failing to treat you in a reasonable amount of time
- Failing to diagnose a serious medical condition
- Discharging you or someone you love prematurely
Emergency room errors can be life-changing. After an injury or illness is made worse by emergency room negligence, many accident victims have difficulty getting around. With six office locations, including Syracuse, Binghamton, Buffalo and Watertown, New York, as well as Montrose and Kingston, Pennsylvania, we offer convenient access to the legal help you depend on. Our attorneys can also work with you to make home or hospital visits if needed.
