Most injured or ill people first seek medical help in an emergency room. Unfortunately, sometimes emergency rooms are overcrowded and understaffed, which leads to rushed diagnoses and treatment that cause medical errors.
 
Examples of preventable emergency room errors include:
  • Misdiagnosis of medical treatments
  • Failing to notice symptoms of heart attacks and stroke
  • Overlooking obvious signs of distress
  • Errors in prescribing or administering medication
  • Surgical errors
Such emergency room errors can lead to injuries, deterioration of an existing medical condition or even death of the patients. Emergency Room victims must watch out for some important things to recover from the emotional, physical, and monetary trauma suffered during the injury. This process entails talking to insurance companies, recovering from the pain and suffering, paying for medical bills, property damage repair among many other things. However, what you need to worry about most is getting the medical treatment you need.

Emergency rooms can be chaotic, and the position of an emergency room physician is one of the most challenging in medicine. This can lead to emergency room errors, which can cause injuries to patients. The law can hold ER physicians liable for any harm caused to a patient because of substandard care. In order to win an ER medical malpractice, a patient must prove three basic elements
  • Prove that there was a doctor-patient relationship
  • Prove that there was indeed negligent treatment in the ER
  • Show that the ER staff negligence harmed the patient

California Emergency Room Medical Malpractice Laws

If a doctor fails to provide quality care that any other professional doctor would have provided under the same circumstance, then he or she is negligent. To demonstrate negligence, a patient must prove the standard of care and breach of the standard of care. In addition, the patient must prove that the doctor’s negligence caused foreseeable harm. This harm includes pain and suffering, cost of medical bills due to additional corrective treatment, loss of earning capacity, and loss of the ability to enjoy life.
