Emergency rooms are chaotic environments that lend themselves to unfortunate errors, resulting in medical malpractice. Despite the challenges of working in an ER, doctors must be held accountable for their actions. If medical malpractice occurs while you or someone you love is in emergent care, it’s critical to contact a law firm with a winning track record in medical malpractice cases.
At Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., our seasoned ER Malpractice Lawyers can file a lawsuit on your behalf and seek economic or non-economic damages for medical negligence. These settlement amounts can help cover the cost of medical care required as a result of these medical errors incurred by doctors, nurses, or other staff in an ER ward.
To build a strong medical malpractice case against medical professionals from an emergency room, three elements must be provable:
Medical records and formal documentation from the hospital can prove that the doctor-patient relationship was established. Medical negligence is more challenging to prove, especially with emergency room doctors. Your lawyer must demonstrate that they breached the standard of care, such as continued dismissal of your proclamations of pain by the doctor attending to you.
To prove that the negligence caused harm to you, your lawyer can show your physical conditions that occurred after the incident, or mental, emotional trauma that stemmed from the negligent treatment in the ER. Supporting documentation from medical professionals may be required to prove that the harm occurred.
