Emergency Room Errors
When patients go to the emergency room, they trust their physicians and other professionals to provide the care they need. In such a fast-paced environment, however, mistakes and lapses of judgment can occur, possibly leading to expensive and long-term medical consequences for the patient. A Good Law Firm helps clients who have been injured in emergency room incidents seek the compensation they need. Our firm can analyze the factors of your case and walk you through the legal process. Whether your incident was caused by the doctor, physician’s assistant, radiologist, or another medical professional, our compassionate law firm can work hard to seek the compensation you deserve.
Injuries Resulting from Failure to Diagnose
Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose occurs when a medical professional fails to properly understand and diagnose a patient’s condition. This can result in the doctor prescribing improper treatments, such as medications or surgeries, which do not remedy the issue or even cause harm to the patient. If you have been injured due to a misdiagnosis or failure to properly diagnose your medical condition, our experienced firm can represent you to seek the compensation you deserve. We can investigate your incident and seek to prove that a doctor-patient relationship existed, that the doctor’s actions were negligent and that you suffered harm due to that negligence in order to seek compensation in court.
Failure to Diagnose Subarachnoid Hemorrhage
Subarachnoid hemorrhage is bleeding in the subarachnoid space, or the space between the brain and the tissues that surround it. Failure to misdiagnose subarachnoid hemorrhage can lead to severe brain damage, which is why it is important for doctors to properly identify the symptoms and prescribe treatments to help avoid serious brain trauma. Physical symptoms like stiffness of the neck, decreased vision, and severe headaches can alert doctors to this condition, and CT and MRI scans, transcranial ultrasounds, and cerebral angiographies can provide further evidence for the proper diagnosis of this hemorrhage.
Failure to Diagnose Cauda Equina Syndrome
Failure to diagnose cauda equina syndrome can lead to serious injuries, including paralysis, neurological problems, and decreased control of the bladder and bowels. Cauda equina syndrome is a compression or inflammation of the nerves at the end of the spinal cord that control movement of the pelvis and lower limbs, as well as bladder and bowel functions. Symptoms for this syndrome include weakness and numbness in the legs and feet, lower back pain, incontinence, and stabbing pains in the lower limbs. Physicians have a responsibility to provide the diagnosis and treatment you need, and A Good Law Firm can use a thorough knowledge of the legal system to help you seek the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
