In the critical moments when a person enters an emergency room, important decisions must be made. This is a time when prompt attention and effective medical care can often make a difference in the health of the patient. If that care and attention are denied, however, or if medical personnel overlook key indicators, precious time is lost.
Medical professionals have a legal, ethical, and moral duty to provide care that meets the expected standard. This includes doctors and nurses staffing emergency rooms and EMT personnel. If a loved one has suffered serious harm due to emergency room negligence, you have the right to demand answers about what happened, and you may also be entitled to claim compensation for economic and noneconomic losses. You should discuss your case with our experienced medical malpractice attorney in New York City.

Comprehensive Investigation and Legal Effort
A negative medical outcome in itself does not form the basis for a medical malpractice case. It is important to carefully investigate the circumstances of the events leading to the outcome, to determine how the treatment provided failed to meet the expected standard of care.
If we believe that your case has merit, we will undertake a comprehensive investigation of the care provided. This will involve research conducted by one or more experts in emergency medical care, emergency room procedures, and other medical specialties. Our personal injury attorneys can document medical negligence, place a value on your losses and suffering, and seek full compensation on your behalf.
