Jacksonville ER Malpractice Attorneys

Representing Victims for ER Negligence and Malpractice in Florida

When we seek medical care at a hospital, emergency room, urgent care, or clinic, we have a right to assume that the facility will be well-staffed by competent medical professionals. If you or a family member has suffered an injury due to negligent medical treatment, you have a right to seek compensation in a medical malpractice claim.

Medical malpractice lawsuits can be complicated and take years to be settled. To ensure that you and your family get the compensation you deserve in a timely manner, it is important to be represented by an experienced ER malpractice attorney in Jacksonville.

Farah & Farah have been successfully represented Florida medical malpractice victims for years. Call us today at (904) 263-4610 for a free consultation.

A Tragic Tale of Emergency Room Malpractice

It is sad whenever someone suffers a life-altering injury, but is particularly tragic when the victim is young, vibrant, and teeming with potential. Joanna Shirley was an active Jacksonville teenager who enjoyed cheer leading, dancing, gymnastics, and playing piano. She was going to community college and planned on transferring to Brigham Young University. That dream died on May 18th, 2001 when Johanna fainted at her job in a department store. She was rushed by ambulance to Orange Park Medical Center for diagnosis and treatment.

Failure by the medical staff to correctly diagnose Ms. Shirley for the brain aneurysm she had suffered resulted in permanent brain damage. Years later she is still struggling to learn how to walk and talk again, and has undergone multiple surgeries. She and her family have suffered severe financial and emotional hardships. Fortunately, they contacted Farah & Farah. We were able to recover a $5 million settlement for the Shirley family to recoup their losses and cover their daughter’s future care.

Emergency Room Malpractice Statistics

Due to the high volume of patients that go through an emergency room (ER), these facilities tend to have a higher rate of malpractice claims. Over half of ER malpractice claims involved misdiagnosis (wrong diagnosis), delayed diagnosis, or failure to diagnose. Types of ER malpractice claims of misdiagnosis break down as follows:

  • Misdiagnosis – 30 percent
  • Failure to diagnose – 20 percent
  • Delayed diagnosis – 1.7 percent

If you or a loved one has suffered injury or death due to negligent care or lack of care at an emergency medical facility, it is vital that you contact a seasoned malpractice attorney. Hospitals employ large insurance companies to fight or offer lower settlement claims. Don’t let that happen to you. Contact a personal injury lawyer at Farah & Farah.
