Emergency Room Errors
People seek medical attention from emergency rooms when they cannot wait for a doctor's appointment. They require immediate care, and they are often in a lot of pain or experiencing a frightening physical problem. What happens, though, when their concerns are not taken seriously or they do not receive the standard of care? Emergency room errors can result in serious injury, illnesses and even death. Our St. Louis, Missouri law firm protects the rights of patients who have been injured while in the care of emergency room staff.
