Stamford ER Malpractice Lawyers
When people go to the emergency room, it is because they believe they have a serious medical condition that requires immediate attention. Doctors and emergency room staff are trained to thoroughly review all symptoms so that they can diagnose and treat whatever medical conditions are involved. When they fail to live up to that training, the results can be tragic. At the Connecticut law firm of Jacobs & Quiles, LLC, we bring more than 30 years of experience to these complex cases. That experience, together with our significant litigation skills, allows us to aggressively fight for victims.
Misdiagnosis or Failure to Diagnose in the Emergency Room
Many emergency room errors involve misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose serious medical conditions. ER doctors may send people away without conducting the proper tests, or perhaps after providing medication for the wrong condition. Patients leave, trusting that they have been given the appropriate care, only to suffer serious complications later.
A common source of misdiagnosis in the ER is the heart attack. Someone goes in complaining of chest pains, is diagnosed with a stomach condition and is sent away. Soon after, the patient suffers a full-blown heart attack which should have been treated earlier.
Litigating to Get Results in Emergency Room Error Cases
Ideally, victims of doctor mistakes in emergency rooms would be able to get compensation with ease. Unfortunately, that is not often the case. Even when claims are clearly valid, insurance companies may withhold full compensation. Both of our law firm's attorneys have significant insurance defense experience, meaning we have unique insight into these issues. This strengthens our ability to maximize the client's recovery.
