Don't let hospital negligence go unchecked

People turn to emergency rooms in their darkest hours. When they are having emergencies that require immediate medical care, people trust that the doctors and nurses in these facilities will take care of them. People literally have nowhere else to turn in order to get the care that they need. However, doctors and nurses in emergency rooms often fall far short of these expectations.

Emergency room policies, doctor's errors and other negligence can result in substandard care for Maryland residents. Emergency rooms can overlook patients with serious health care needs, increasing their wait times until their conditions are critical. Or, individuals may only be seen by a nurse practitioner and not properly diagnosed by a medical doctor.

A patient may be discharged when things are very seriously wrong. Doctors may miss the signs of a heart attack or misdiagnose cancer, for example. Something that looks non-threatening may actually be a very serious medical condition. When this happens, Maryland residents and their families need to know how to respond.

The attorneys at our law firm have 30 years of experience working on behalf of people injured by negligent hospitals and emergency rooms. We understand the complexities of these cases and have helped guide residents through their legal options.

Individuals who have been hurt by a negligent hospital may have the right to compensation. Our attorneys have helped people recover when they have been hurt by emergency room negligence. We have experience advocating for individuals who need to focus on their own physical recovery. While compensation in a medical malpractice suit cannot overcome the error made by a medical professional, this compensation can help families avoid financial ruin.
