The Emergency Room is a place where people go for immediate help with medical issues or injury. The doctors are well trained to act quickly and diagnose patients in minimal time. When something goes wrong in the Emergency Room, contact an attorney to help you file Bowling Green emergency room error claims.
Oftentimes, emergency room doctors have little information regarding a patient’s condition and they must use their training and experience to do so appropriately. But, when an ER doctor does make a mistake, it can cause serious damage to the patient they are treating. This can included life-long health issues, permanent damage, and increased medical expenses.
Medical malpractice includes everything from the misdiagnosis of a disease or condition, to the improper dose of medication. All of these things, some big and others small, can cause serious side effects and implications to the ER patient.
If you have been the victim of medical malpractice in an Ohio emergency room, the below incidences may have occurred:
