ER Errors

Peoria, Illinois Emergency Room Malpractice Attorneys Protecting You

When you are injured in an accident, the medical treatment you receive immediately afterwards in the hospital emergency room is often the most important. Many serious injuries are much more difficult to treat if they not caught right away. Others can lead to a potentially fatal outcome.

Nicoara & Steagall, a renowned Peoria, Illinois, personal injury law firm, represents clients throughout Central Illinois in emergency room malpractice claims.

Making a person wait too long, failing to provide prompt medical treatment, failing to listen to a patient or to communicate vital information — emergency room doctors and nurses must be held liable for not meeting basic, minimum standards of medical care and treatment.

If your health or that of a loved one has been compromised by poor medical care following a car accident, an injury at work or another emergency situation, our experienced lawyers will help you find justice. Contact our office today.

Common Emergency Room Malpractice Errors We Handle Include:

  • Failed to treat a patient
  • Failed to provide prompt medical treatment
  • Failure to diagnose a closed head injury
  • Failure to diagnose heart attack or stroke
  • Misinterpreting symptoms
  • Emergency surgery errors
  • Medication mistakes

Was your pneumonia mistaken for a cold? Was a blood sugar check missed for a dizzy and disoriented diabetic? Was a serious infection easily avoidable? Failing to make an obvious diagnosis is common in emergency room malpractice cases.

While we know some injuries can be as simple as they appear, we also understand that ER staff cannot afford to exclude the possibility that there is a more significant, underlying issue. For example, headaches and other seemingly harmless symptoms could mask a serious brain injury, which can take weeks to fully reveal itself.

As tenacious and well respected advocates for injury victims and their families, our firm is not afraid to take your case to trial. With our extensive experience and network of professional resources, we will be well prepared to help you resolve matters as quickly as possible, so you can get the proper medical attention and financial resources you need.
