Moving Forward After An Emergency Room Error

As the front line of medical care, it is no secret how chaotic an emergency room can be. When split-second decisions can mean the difference between life and death, it is not surprising that some decisions can be made in error. Despite the best intentions behind an emergency room error, the liable party needs to be held responsible for the consequences of their choices.

At The Oppenheimer Firm, we understand the gravity of these situations and are dedicated to holding Illinois medical professionals accountable for their actions on behalf of those who have suffered. We are committed to standing by your side throughout every step of your medical malpractice claim.

The Critical Nature Of Emergency Room Care

When you go to the emergency room for a critical illness or injury, you expect the staff there to provide you with swift and accurate treatments. While treating you, there are many opportunities for an error, like a misdiagnosis, delayed treatment, or improper procedures that can result in irreversible harm. These mistakes can result in consequences such as:

  • Worsened medical condition
  • New health issues
  • Catastrophic and permanent injuries
  • Death

We understand the current and long-term impacts of these and other injuries, and you deserve a lawyer who has the knowledge and skill necessary to seek the settlement you deserve to cover the present and future expenses of your injuries and recovery.

When we take a client’s medical malpractice case, we work tirelessly to explore all opportunities for bolstering their compensation claim. As we represent you, we will investigate the details surrounding your injuries, speak with medical experts, and craft a personalized strategy to help you overcome the harm you have experienced.
