Attorneys Assist Victims of Emergency Room Errors in Winnebago County

Emergency rooms in Illinois and throughout the country are becoming more crowded with each passing year. According to the Centers for Disease Control, there are more than 141 million ER visits each year, which equates to nearly 45 visits for every 100 individuals in the United States. Emergency rooms are hectic places, and the fast-paced environment causes numerous errors to occur, many of which result in serious health issues for patients. If you or someone close to you has suffered injury or wrongful death due to an ER mistake, you may be entitled to compensation.

Our attorneys have in-depth knowledge of this area of the law, and we put our extensive experience to work to aggressively advocate on behalf of medical negligence victims and their families. We have successfully handled numerous cases against well-funded Chicago-area facilities, and we know what it takes to ensure favorable results for our clients in even the most complex cases.

Common Reasons for ER Mistakes in Illinois Hospitals

Overcrowded and understaffed emergency rooms can lead to numerous errors, including:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Medication errors
  • Misreading X-rays or test results
  • Paperwork errors
  • Lab errors
  • Failure to order necessary tests
  • Failure to consult with the appropriate specialists
  • Failure to perform life-saving procedures
  • Failure to maintain sanitary conditions

ER mistakes can occur from the very moment a patient arrives at the hospital. For example, when doctors or other staff downplay the condition of a patient and wait too long to see them, it can lead to serious consequences. If a patient's condition worsens after an ER visit, the facility's staff will often claim that they were already in poor shape when they came in, and the deteriorating condition is not their fault. For this reason, proving negligence against the facility typically requires a thorough investigation to uncover important facts that show the ER was responsible.
