Winning an Emergency Room Error Case

To win an emergency room error case, there are a few elements that must be proven.

Here are the key elements that must be proven for a successful outcome:

  • There was a doctor-patient relationship
  • The emergency room error involved negligence
  • The patient was injured as a result of this negligence

While establishing a doctor-patient relationship is straightforward enough, proving negligence is often trickier and requires expert testimony to demonstrate that the treatment you received breached the standard of care that any other reasonably competent physician with a similar background and experience level would have provided in a similar situation.

Common Emergency Room Errors

When medical professionals act negligently, anything can go wrong, especially in the fast-paced emergency room environment.

Here are some of the most common emergency room errors:

  • Not ordering the correct tests
  • Delaying medical treatment
  • Administering the wrong medication or the incorrect dosage
  • Triage errors
  • Incorrectly interpreting lab or test results
  • Not gathering a patient’s thorough medical history
  • Overlooking crucial information regarding a patient’s medical history
