Upstate New York Emergency Room Malpractice Attorney
Emergency rooms are fast-paced environments where seriously injured or ill patients require immediate help. The hectic environment requires physicians, nurses, surgeons, paramedics and other medical professionals to make immediate decisions amidst chaos. The nature of an ER can lead to the following:
- Delayed diagnoses
- Failure to diagnose
- Contaminated blood transfusions
- Failure to fully evaluate or treat a patient’s condition
- Late or wrong diagnosis
- Faulty laboratory tests
- Prescribing wrong medication
- Failure to monitor a patient
- Failure to communicate proper follow-up care after the visit to the ER
A Seasoned And Skilled New York ER Malpractice Lawyer
Josh Gillette and Janet Izzo are attorneys who do more than represent their clients in emergency room malpractice claims. They support and empower their clients. They encourage them to take control and assert their legal and medical rights. Simply stated, they want their clients to be the second “advocate” handling the case.
Emergency rooms have overworked employees due to a lack of staffing. People fill ERs with broken bones, heart attacks, strokes, internal bleeding and other potentially deadly medical problems. Overcrowding and under-staffing lead to patients not being admitted or prioritized. Their condition can deteriorate as they wait or they can be discharged improperly.
The inherent chaos of the environment does not excuse mistakes that can injure or kill patients. At Gillette & Izzo Law Office, we hold medical professionals accountable for hospital negligence. We attend to every detail of your claim while you focus on the injuries you suffered due to their inattentiveness.
