Emergency Room Error Lawyers in Kansas City

Fighting for Victims of Medical Malpractice

In the emergency room, the stakes are higher than in any other medical setting. While physicians, nurses, and other medical professionals are required to make quick medical decisions in the ER, there is still no excuse for outright negligence or carelessness. When your emergency medical professionals fail to consider your safety and cause life-altering injuries, you may be entitled to bring a medical malpractice claim against them and their organization.

Medical malpractice claims can be complicated, but with our team of trained doctor-lawyers, you can rest assured that your case will receive the care, attention, and thought that it deserves. Our Kansas City attorneys at Cullan & Cullan have recovered over $350 million to help victims recover after serious accidents – including emergency room errors – and we are passionate about helping injury victims achieve results.

Common Emergency Room Mistakes

From misdiagnosis to medication errors, there are dozens of ways that emergency room practitioners can cause serious injuries and even fatalities through negligence. These errors are relatively commonplace: One study estimated that up to 250,000 deaths in the emergency room are caused by a medical error.

Although the emergency room is different than other healthcare facilities, your medical team still has an obligation to meet the “standard of care” that other qualified emergency room professionals would meet in the same circumstances.
