Errors In The Emergency Room
People who seek emergency room (ER) help do so out of a sense of urgency. They expect that when emergency care is sought, the hospital and ER staff will take care of their medical concerns. If you or someone you care about has been injured because of an ER error, consider The Mahoney Law Firm, P.C., for legal representation.
Our firm was founded more than 40 years ago by Dennis M. Mahoney, M.D., a licensed physician and attorney. Today the firm’s tradition of providing compassionate legal service to injured clients is carried on by his sons Paul Mahoney and Kevin Mahoney, who continue his fight for individuals who have been injured as a result of errors made by ER doctors, nurses or other medical professionals.

When Mistakes Cause Injuries
In an ER situation, there is very often little room for error. Mistakes can be made when ER staff lets a patient wait too long, miscommunicates or doesn’t take a patient’s complaints seriously enough. In most cases, ruling out the most serious problem – such as heart attack or stroke – can save lives. Our firm also helps family members pursue compensation in wrongful death claims caused by the negligence of ER staff. Our firm represents people whose lives are impacted by ER errors related to the following:
- Failure to diagnose cancer and other illnesses
- Failure to treat a medical condition
- Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
- Misreading a medical chart or lab test
- Failure to treat blood clot or pulmonary embolism
- Failure to treat a heart attack or stroke
- Medication errors

Mistakes that are made in emergency rooms can be devastating. Too often, people are sent home from the ER when in fact further medical care should have been administered. If you or a loved one has been injured by an ER error, we can help. Contact The Mahoney Law Firm, P.C., today to learn more.
