Virginia Emergency Room Error Attorneys

Fighting to Hold Negligent Medical Providers Accountable

Emergency rooms are constantly filled with high-pressure situations, requiring everyone present to be alert and on top of their game at all times. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Overworked employees and understaffed facilities can lead to mistakes with serious consequences. When medical staff or hospitals are negligent in their treatment of patients in the emergency department and injure them as a result of that negligence, a medical malpractice lawsuit may be filed.

Approximately 30% of all emergency room medical malpractice lawsuits are filed because of misdiagnosis. In such a high-pressure, high-volume situation, it is not surprising that patients begin to be treated like numbers. At Breit Cantor Grana Buckner, we guarantee that you won’t be treated as just another number. Because we limit our caseload, our Virginia emergency room error lawyers devote extensive time and effort solely to your case. Since 1979, we have obtained hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation on behalf of our clients, including more than 150 verdicts and settlements at $1 million or more.

Types of Emergency Room Errors

A large percentage of emergency room errors are due to misdiagnosis. Other errors stem from a wide variety of issues related to the fast pace of the emergency room.

Take a look at common emergency room errors:

  • EMT & paramedic negligence
  • Physician or nurse inexperience
  • Anesthesia error
  • Surgical error
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Tainted blood transfusion

In any emergency room medical malpractice case, it is important to hold the physician or other medical professionals liable for their negligence. Not only may you be compensated for your loss, but you can also help prevent future medical errors as well. Your chances of obtaining full compensation are greatly increased with the help of a skilled medical malpractice lawyer!
