How Emergency Room Misdiagnosis Happens

Medical malpractice happens when a healthcare provider fails to act according to accepted standards of care. In the case of emergency room misdiagnosis, this means not recognizing signs and symptoms that could have resulted in an accurate diagnosis. Common causes of misdiagnosis in an ER include:

  • Failing to read or disregarding lab results

  • Failing to order the appropriate tests

  • Failing to consider a patient’s medical history

  • Failing to refer a patient to a specialist

  • Failing to admit a patient for additional workup

Misdiagnosis Can Occur in an Emergency Room

Emergency rooms are a crucial component of our healthcare system. They provide rapid medical attention, often in life-threatening situations. However, due to the high volume of patients and, the need to see patients as quickly as possible, misdiagnosis can occur in an emergency room setting.

This is why it’s important to have experienced attorneys on your side to help you get the justice and compensation needed to cover the costs of medical treatment, lost wages, and other associated expenses.

Do You Need a Medical Malpractice Lawyer?

If you’re debating on whether or not to partner with a medical malpractice lawyer, the answer is almost certainly yes. The process of filing a medical malpractice claim is long and complicated, and the stress of handling it on your own might be too much—especially if you’re still reeling from the consequences of the initial emergency room misdiagnosis.

Hospitals and medical providers are protected under tort reform. In fact, the Utah legislature has passed laws specifically to make it harder to sue emergency room doctors. This makes it very difficult to get the compensation you deserve without a knowledgeable attorney on your side. Our lawyers will ensure that your rights are respected while navigating the legal system, and that your voice and story will be heard.
