You will not find a place more hectic than an emergency room, but that should never prevent you from getting proper medical attention. If you have been a victim of medical malpractice in an ER, a Chicago emergency room error attorney can help you get the medical care you need and the financial compensation you deserve.
At Seidman Margulis & Fairman, LLP, we can help you through this difficult time. Emergency room errors are all too common, but there is a fine line between a doctor's mistake and medical malpractice. That is why you want a lawyer on your side who understands your rights and recovery options.
Assessing Your Emergency Room Malpractice Claim
The first job of any doctor, whether in the emergency room or his or her own office, is to make a diagnosis. Failure to order tests or react to symptoms according to basic medical standards is often considered malpractice. We handle medical malpractice cases that occur in emergency rooms, including:
- Failure to diagnose
- Failure to refer to a specialist
- Failure to treat on a timely basis
Due to the nature of medical malpractice, these claims vary greatly from one another. As your attorneys, we will thoroughly investigate the specifics of your case to evaluate your claim and gather evidence.
Our first goal is to make sure you get the medical care you need, whether you have suffered a heart attack or stroke or developed a condition that requires surgery. We have the experience and the resources to make sure you have access to proper care.
