Sometimes the worst emergency room errors occur when you get no help at all. It is the job of emergency room physicians to recognize when sick patients need to see a specialist. The failure to get a consultation could easily lead to an undiagnosed condition that only gets worse. If you seek medical help, only to be told that you are fine, you will never get the help you deserve.
We protect individuals who have sought help at an emergency room, only to suffer the following mistakes:
Certain medical problems require the attention of a specialist. ER doctors cannot admit patients into the hospital, so it is their job to call an attending physician. Failure to get the appropriate medical attention is doctor malpractice, and these types of emergency room errors can lead to major medical problems.
We once had a client who went to the hospital where the radiologist noticed that he had cancer, but then he was released without ever being informed of his condition. Three and half years later, he goes back to the ER. They remember to tell him the second time, but the first misdiagnosis has already cost him years of potential treatment.
The Charlotte medical malpractice attorneys at Elam & Elam, PLLC believe that you should not have to suffer because of the negligence of another. We are here to fight for justice on your behalf and see that you are properly compensated for the wrongs done to you.
