Emergency Room Error Lawyer in San Francisco
80+ Years of Combined Experience Defending the Injured in California
Going to the emergency room is not only stressful but also a painful and frightening ordeal. We are hurting, confused, and in need of help as we turn to the doctors and nurses who are trained to handle these serious situations. On some occasions, however, the staff fails the patient and ultimately creates further harm by deviating from the standard procedure or being negligent in their treatment.
Unfortunately, it is a sad truth that if an emergency room doctor or nurse had just taken one more step, ordered one more test or called in a specialist to consult, further injury or even a wrongful death could have possibly been avoided.
We have more than 80 years of combined experience helping our clients through the most stressful periods of their lives. Call us at (888) 831-8448 for a free consultation!
Your Rights in the Emergency Room
If you are in an emergency room, you have a right to ask to be evaluated by a doctor. Some emergency rooms assign nurses or physician assistants to see patients putting you at risk of misdiagnosis. In addition, federal law dictates that you are medically screened in an emergency room regardless of your ability to pay. Emergency rooms are often chaotic and a misplaced medical record or medication error can lead to disaster. Our firm can aggressively fight to protect your rights in emergency room error cases.
