Emergency Room Negligence

Emergencies Are No Excuse For Emergency Room Errors

An emergency care room is hectic, and it can be difficult to treat every patient with the attention he or she needs. Despite those conditions, however, doctors, nurses and administrators are required to act with due care to prevent serious injury or death to patients.

We are Vincent J. DeSalvo, an experienced hospital malpractice firm in Baton Rouge, dedicated to helping victims and their families recover the compensation they need and deserve.

Immediate Investigation After ER Malpractice Injury Or Death

If you or someone you love recently suffered an injury or you lost a loved one under the care of an ER facility, it is important to collect evidence as soon as possible. We are experienced in the discovery process and will analyze the facts of your case, consult with witnesses and review hospital records to determine whether the ER facility was at fault for any injury or death.

As part of the process, we will also consult with all necessary experts who can testify to the standards of care expected in an emergency room setting.

We can uncover errors such as:

  • Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose
  • Ignoring fatal symptoms or failing to order tests
  • Delayed response
  • Medication and other prescription errors
  • Not providing the right care to children with fever

Taking Action And Holding The ER Facility Responsible

After an accident or injury, you may feel frustrated or that you have nobody to turn to. Remember that you are not alone and that you do have counsel and advocacy available.

We will give you honest and forthright advice and information. If we do not believe you have a viable case, we will say so. If we can help you recover, we will provide strategic, aggressive advocacy focused on holding medical professionals accountable for any injury caused by negligence.
