Port Clinton Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Patients go to the emergency room for expert care. Whether they have suffered trauma, or they have mysterious symptoms, they look to emergency room doctors and staff to help them. Sometimes when people visit the emergency room for care, they are misdiagnosed which can lead to medical malpractice. If this has happened to you, you should contact a Port Clinton medical malpractice lawyer immediately.

Some of the common reasons for an ER visit include:

  • Chest pain
  • Abdominal pain
  • Toothaches
  • Sprains and broken bones
  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Cuts and contusions
  • Back pain
  • Skin infections
  • Foreign objects in the body
  • Headaches

Some of these common causes are symptoms for other conditions that must be diagnosed. For instance, chest pains can be signs of other, more serious problems. The doctor is responsible for looking at the patient’s past history to see if there is a life-threatening situation.

Another common reason for an ER visit – abdominal pain – can be a symptom of indigestion, food poisoning, kidney stones, as well as other serious conditions. The ER doctor must assess the symptom and how it relates to others the patient is experiencing to ensure a proper diagnosis.

Emergency Room

From misdiagnosis to problems with medication, medical malpractice can be in many forms. In the emergency room, medical malpractice may include the misreading of medical tests, misdiagnosis of a condition, improper dosage of medications and problems with the patient’s IV.

The above mistakes can cause medical conditions that may threaten the patient’s life.

Statute of Limitations

In Ohio, there is a statute of limitations placed on medical malpractice claims. Victims of medical malpractice have exactly one year from the incident to file their claim. If the victim fails to do so within the given time period, they are unable to collect any damages for the pain and suffering they may have undergone.
