Florida Emergency Room Error Lawyers
When you seek medical treatment at an emergency room or urgent care clinic, you assume that you will be provided with the very best care by trained medical professionals. However, many people wind up injured by the people who are there to help them. Unfortunately, emergency room malpractice errors can cause devastating consequences.
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 emergency room malpractice claims involved misdiagnosis (wrong diagnosis), delayed diagnosis, or failure to diagnose.
If you or a loved one has suffered due to medical negligence in Florida, you have the right to seek compensation.

Types of Emergency Room Errors
Medical malpractice in an emergency setting can take many forms. Staff shortages, the need for quick turnover, or negligence from nurses or physicians can result in injury or even death.
Common types of emergency room malpractice include:
- Failure to perform a thorough physical examination
- Failure to consider a patient’s medical history
- Failure to identify or rule out life-threatening ailments
- Failure to (fully) treat a patient
- Failure to order appropriate diagnostic tests, like MRIs, X-rays, or blood work
- Failure to review test results in a timely manner
- Failure to monitor patients’ well-being in the waiting room of the emergency room
- Failure to recommend specialists
- Improper monitoring
- Delayed care
- Hasty conclusions and treatments
- Laboratory errors
- Medication or dosage errors
- Surgical errors
- Refusing to treat patients with obvious medical needs
- Contaminated blood transfusions
- Premature discharge of a patient from the emergency room
These are just some of the ways that grave injury can result from incompetent emergency care.
