In the fast-paced atmosphere of the emergency room, proper treatment and meeting high standards of medical care are crucial. Unfortunately, all it takes is one mistake or medication error to result in severe injury or death. If you believe negligence played a role in your injury or the death of a loved one, it is important to talk to an experienced medical malpractice attorney.

If you suffered pain, high medical bills, or loss of earning capability or enjoyment of your life due to a negligent error in an emergency room, you may be entitled to compensation. An experienced attorney can evaluate your situation and help you figure out what steps to take next. At Slater & Norris, P.L.C., we will provide personal service and guidance through this experience. We are focused on helping you get the recovery you deserve.

How Do These Errors Happen?

Due to the high-risk environment of an emergency room, errors can occur. Additionally, the standard of care of an emergency room doctor is slightly lower than that of a regular doctor due to the hectic environment. In a setting such as an emergency room, a doctor is not required to exercise the same diligence that a specialist or general practicing doctor should.

This can lead to serious mistakes and errors that could threaten your health.
