Emergency Room Errors

Pittsburgh Lawyers Representing Victims Of Emergency Room Errors

Doctors who work in emergency rooms are on the front lines of the medical profession. Since they treat people with life-threatening conditions, we expect them to know what they are dealing with and to move swiftly to provide the proper care. Unfortunately, when an emergency room doctor doesn’t do his or her job, serious injury or death is often the result.

I’m attorney John Gismondi, founder of Gismondi & Associates. We are lawyers who represent people in Pittsburgh and throughout Pennsylvania who have been injured as a result of emergency room errors. A powerful lawsuit can provide full and complete compensation for you, and it can also send a strong message that will help to prevent some other person from being injured by a similar mistake or accident.

Common Mistakes In The Emergency Room

Many emergency room deaths and injuries are caused by doctors and hospital staff waiting too long to see patients, by not listening to patients, by not taking steps to investigate complaints, by not ordering proper tests, by misreading the results of tests, or by discharging patients before they become medically stable.

Many emergency rooms are overused and understaffed. When doctors rush to treat too many patients, serious illnesses can be misdiagnosed as less serious conditions. Examples of illnesses that are often misdiagnosed in emergency rooms are heart attacks, meningitis and broken bones.

A Lawsuit Provides Compensation … And More

We wish that we could turn back the hands of time and undo what has happened to you or your family. Unfortunately, no lawyer has that power. However, with a successful lawsuit we can reduce the burdens you face by obtaining full and complete compensation for everything that you have experienced as a result of your injury or the death of a family member … mounting medical bills, lost wages, physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, and perhaps most importantly, the loss of the relationship and companionship of a loved one.

We will also fight for compensation to cover everything that you may face in the future. Emergency room error cases often involve long-term needs for things such as future surgeries, specialized equipment, personal attendant care and much more. Our goal is to provide full compensation for all of those needs so that you or your loved one can enjoy the very best quality of life possible and make the most of a difficult situation. After all, that is the least that you are entitled to.

Aside from providing you with full and complete compensation, a lawsuit can do one other very important thing: It can force changes to be made by the doctor or hospital that caused the injury to you or a loved one so that no other person or family has to go through what you have.
