Los Angeles Medical Malpractice Lawyer
There are rules and procedures all healthcare professionals must follow, and a standard of care every patient is entitled to. If a doctor, surgeon or other hospital staffer is careless, or they don’t have the right skills, a patient can be seriously injured or killed.
This is an example of medical malpractice.
Unfortunately, medical errors are common in hospital emergency rooms. In many cases, hospital ERs are understaffed, and employees are working 13 hours or more each day.
This creates an atmosphere primed for medical mistakes. Some of the most common mistakes in hospital ERs include:
- Surgical errors
- Delayed treatment
- Contaminated/Wrong blood type transfusions
- Administering incorrect medication
If any of these mistakes happen to you or a family member, the hospital could be held responsible for your injuries. When medical malpractice is suspected, call us immediately, or contact us online.
