Emergency Room Errors

Emergency rooms (ERs) are the busiest areas in hospitals. Doctors, nurses and other medical professionals in ERs are continuously treating patients and seeing patients in higher volumes than in other medical settings. This hectic environment requires medical professionals to have a particular level of attention to detail and the ability to make fast and accurate judgment calls. When a medical professional does not take the necessary measures to ensure a patient’s safety, critical warning signs can be ignored and further injuries or illnesses can ensue.

At Wagners, we represent individuals in NS, NB, PEI and beyond in injury cases where the injury has resulted from an emergency room error. Collectively we have nearly 80 years of experience representing those who have been injured, and we stand ready to help you.

Causes Of Emergency Room Errors

Many ER errors occur because of a lack of communication between medical staff. ER doctors are required to communicate with nurses, technicians and other staff when treating patients. If one party fails to properly communicate information, the entire communication chain is broken.

In addition to a breakdown in communication, other causes of emergency errors include:

  • Failure to order appropriate tests
  • Failure to monitor a post-surgical patient
  • Administering the wrong dosage/type of medication

Our lawyers take a thorough approach to investigating the cause of the incident and determining liability. Our goal is to help you get the compensation you are entitled to so you can begin to feel whole again and continue on your recovery.

I can't speak highly enough about the lawyers at Wagners who represented me for injuries from not one but two motor vehicle accidents. They were very professional and approachable. I was kept informed of all steps in the process and all of my inquiries were responded to and dealt with very quickly. The lawyers are knowledgeable and showed great empathy for what I was going through. I would recommend this firm to anyone!
