Norfolk Emergency Malpractice Attorneys

Norfolk, Newport News, Roanoke & Nearby Areas of Virginia

Finding yourself or a family member inside an emergency room is one of the most traumatic events that can happen. We want to believe that we can have total confidence in the medical professionals available to treat an illness or injury. Sadly, however, a growing number of Virginia citizens are suffering the consequences of emergency room errors and malpractice. Across the United States, it is estimated that this causes the deaths of at least 100,000 each year.

What Is Emergency Malpractice?

Emergency medical malpractice is the failure of the emergency healthcare professionals to take the necessary precautions and actions that ensure you receive an acceptable standard of treatment. Of course, hospital staff works under pressure, but you should never have to suffer the consequences of overworked, fatigued medical personnel.

Many people think that medical malpractice is just an unfortunate risk associated with emergency medicine, but nothing could be further from the truth. Whether malpractice begins with improper training in the use of specialist medical equipment, a badly equipped emergency room, or insufficient staff, emergency malpractice is unacceptable in the eyes of the law.

If you’ve been the victim of emergency room malpractice, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Refusal to treat without reason
  • Failure to treat an illness or injury
  • Inaccurate diagnosis of your complaint by triage staff
  • Failure to carry out necessary diagnostic tests
  • Prescribing inappropriate medication

Sadly, this list is not exhaustive.

What Can Be Done?

Picking up the pieces after you’ve been the victim of emergency malpractice is never easy. However, the enormous medical expenses resulting from your injuries combined with the stress caused by potential loss of earnings is enough for most people to realize they need professional help in pursuing compensation as an inevitable step towards regaining your life.
