New Jersey emergency rooms are often chaotic environments. Doctors, nurses and other healthcare staff who work in emergency rooms must receive specific training and follow accepted protocol to prevent mistakes even in the face of trauma and chaos. The safety—and even the lives—of ER patients depend upon the ability of these medical professionals to follow the rules and make accurate, informed decisions. Failure to properly adhere to the ER standards can give victims the right to pursue a medical malpractice claim for compensation.

While most emergency room doctors and nurses diligently perform under pressure on a daily basis, there are some ER errors that are simply unacceptable. The consequences of emergency room malpractice to the patient are often devastating, if not fatal. Examples of some emergency room errors that may amount to medical malpractice include:
No one expects that emergency room staff will be able to save every patient or cure every illness. What we should be able to rely upon, however, is that the ER team will adhere to the standards developed within the medical community itself for providing competent emergency care.
At Team Law, our skilled lawyers are dedicated to building compelling cases based on strong evidence to protect victims’ rights. Our strategic-minded medical malpractice lawyers analyze and research every aspect of your case so that we can win the most compensation possible for you.
Emergency room malpractice claims can be particularly complicated because of the number of parties that may be involved. Once admitted to the ER, you will likely come into contact with a number of doctors, nurses, orderlies, administrative staff and more. Potentially liable parties may include:
In most emergency room malpractice claims, it is vital to locate evidence of what happened during the course of your treatment as soon as possible. Also, because the hospital where the ER was located will likely put a team of defense lawyers into action immediately, you need to retain the best possible lawyer as quickly as possible.
$5.6 Million Verdict
Team Law’s client fell and dislocated her knee, causing an injury to the popliteal artery that ultimately resulted in the amputation of her leg. Suit was filed against the hospital to which she had been taken by ambulance, the emergency room doctor, a radiologist and an orthopedic surgeon. The orthopedic surgeon claimed he was inordinately delayed getting to the hospital because of traffic problems on the Garden State Parkway. Team Law was able to counter the surgeon’s testimony by obtaining records from the Garden State Parkway that showed no traffic problems and by obtaining the surgeon’s EZ Pass records. The claim against the emergency room doctor was that he should have asked for vascular consultation when he detected a weak pulse in the foot, not just an orthopedic consult. The claim against the radiologist was that his actions also delayed treatment. After a seven week trial, a verdict was entered in favor of Team Law’s client and against all four of those defendants.

You might not truly know what went wrong. But if you left the emergency room with injuries or illnesses that were made worse, the odds are strong that you should consult an emergency room malpractice lawyer.

In emergency room malpractice cases, it’s especially important to contact an experienced lawyer. We evaluate your case for free because most patients won’t be completely sure what to look for to determine whether an unacceptable mistake was made. Further, we have a trained legal team and contacts in the medical community that can help us make that evaluation. Apart from consulting a lawyer, you should document all your symptoms and write down everything you can about your ER visit. If you feel the treatment you are receiving continues to be subpar, visit another hospital or specialist—or call us so that we can help you find competent medical care—for a second opinion.
Sometimes. Usually, your doctor must inform you of all potential risks, benefits, known side effects and options surrounding your treatment. ERs are hectic. Patients may be suffering or in critical condition. Still, ER doctors might have to obtain your informed consent if you are conscious and able—or at the very least get consent from your family members. In situations where your life is in danger and action must be taken very quickly, however, informed consent is not required.
Team Law is outstanding. Everyone is courteous and knowledgeable and I felt that I got the personal attention that I needed.what our clients are saying
