The fast-paced, high-volume environment of an emergency room lends itself to rushed care, and that can lead to errors. In fact, emergency room malpractice makes up approximately 20% of all medical malpractice lawsuits.
According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, errors in diagnosis and improper performance of a procedure are the two most common types of errors that occur in emergency rooms.
Proving doctor malpractice for emergency treatment is difficult without the assistance of an experienced attorney. An experienced attorney not only understands the nuances of Illinois law and how to develop a strong medical malpractice case, but also has a firm understanding of healthcare laws and regulations. Finding an attorney with industry-specific knowledge and in-depth understanding of the law is essential to develop the strongest case possible.
