Medical Emergency Negligence Attorney -- Columbus, OH

Medical Emergencies and Negligence


Emergency medicine is a very fertile field for negligence since patients presenting to an emergency room with new problems present are in need of accurate diagnoses so that they will receive the correct and safe care. The need for the correct diagnosis is paramount since the diagnosis dictates the care that the patient will receive once they are admitted to the hospital. Alternatively, no diagnosis may be made and the patient discharged from the emergency room only to suffer catastrophic injury because the correct diagnosis was not made.


Sometimes it is the reluctance to order required tests or to have diagnostic tests properly interpreted that leads to an incorrect diagnosis. Other times, it is the overwhelmed emergency room, whether because of improper staffing, inadequately qualified physicians, or a combination of both, which leads to delayed and incorrect diagnoses.
