There are a great many situations that can land you and your loved ones in the emergency room. A night of hard partying, sudden pelvic pain, or even the slip of a kitchen knife can mean spending hours upon hours in the emergency room. When accidents like this happen, we are all grateful to have emergency room doctors and nurses to come to our aid. And although emergency rooms are notorious for being overcrowded and hectic, this does not excuse the numerous emergency room accidents that occur each year due to medical malpractice.
Medical Accidents generally involve the negligence of a hospital or physician or sometimes both. These cases are often some of the hardest cases that Plaintiff’s attorneys work on due to how hard they are defended by the hospital or insurance company for the physician.
