Experienced Legal Guidance After ER Injuries
When we put our lives and health in the hands of health care professionals, we trust the personnel and expect quality services. However, doctors, nurses and other medical staff may commit errors or omissions. They are humans, just like us. The difference is they have the life of their patients in their hands.
Emergency Rooms (ERs) tend to be highly dynamic and stressful environments, making the staff prone to errors, confusion or omissions while treating patients. Fortunately, many injured patients are entitled to compensation. At the New York City firm of Paul B. Weitz & Associates, PC, we have a long-standing tradition of dedicated legal services to recover fair compensation for our clients and making liable parties accountable for their actions.
You Might Be Entitled To Compensation
ER cases and medical malpractice cases, in general, highly depend on details and evidence. After discussing the facts and circumstances that resulted in your injury, we will give our honest opinion about what damages we can pursue and how the case may unfold.
Fair compensation should include the cost of your ER stay and treatment, current and future medical bills, and required treatment. Other damages include economic damages (loss of income and earning capacity) and noneconomic damages (pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life).
At Paul B. Weitz & Associates, PC, our medical malpractice attorneys have assisted our clients with their legal needs after the following ER errors:
- Misdiagnosis and misinterpretation of test results
- Medication errors (wrong dose or medication)
- Delay in treatment
- Ignoring the patient’s medical history
- Discharging patients prematurely
We have the experience and skill to determine whether we can settle your case through negotiation or we need to go to court. We serve clients from Long Island, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and as far as Erie County in Buffalo.
