Emergency Room Malpractice
Syracuse Lawyers Who Know How To Get Results
People who need medical attention quickly go the hospital emergency room. They expect their health problem to be properly diagnosed and treated. But negligence can lead to errors that result in serious injuries or death.

Some of the errors that are made in emergency rooms include:
- Failing to treat patients in a timely manner
- Discharging a patient too soon
- Giving patients the wrong medication
- Emergency surgery errors
- Misreading lab results or X-rays
