Emergency Room & Surgical Errors

When you undergo surgery or take a loved one to the emergency room, you deserve to have your or your family member’s medical needs addressed in a knowledgeable manner. In most cases, surgeons and ER staff do exactly that. In rare cases, however, they may act negligently and cause additional injury. If the negligence or carelessness of a South Carolina surgeon or emergency room employee resulted in harm to you or a loved one, you have rights. John Price Law Firm, LLC is here to uphold those rights. Our Charleston emergency room attorney services can help you pursue maximum compensation for your injuries.

Examples Of Emergency Room Errors And Surgical Mistakes

ER and surgery errors come in a wide variety. Here are just a few examples:

  • Operating on the wrong part of a patient’s body (i.e., “wrong site surgery”)
  • Leaving sponges, scalpels or other surgical instruments behind in a patient’s body
  • Failing to admit someone who is in vital need of assistance
  • Failing to keep the surgery or ER room sterile
  • Failing to treat blood clots or pulmonary embolism
  • Misdiagnosing an urgent medical condition
  • Reading a patient’s test results or medical charts incorrectly
  • Prematurely discharging a patient
  • Failing to order CT scans, blood tests or other necessary tests
  • Prescribing or administering the wrong medication

If you or a loved one has suffered a personal injury at the hands of a negligent party, do not hesitate to contact our experienced South Carolina personal injury attorneys.
