Portland Emergency Room Error Lawyer

Most people do not go to the emergency room for treatment of the common cold or a minor sore throat. People who seek emergency room care do so out of a sense of urgency. They are experiencing medical symptoms or have acquired an injury that needs immediate care. When they arrive at the ER, they expect medical staff will promptly and properly care for their needs.

Unfortunately, tens of thousands of emergency room patients die each year due to medical negligence. Every time someone enters the often chaotic environment of an emergency room, they open themselves up to a host of possible medical mistakes.

At the Savage Law Firm, we have spent the last three decades advocating for victims of emergency room errors. Whether you were injured due to a medical mistake caused by a doctor, nurse or other medical professional, or lost a loved one in a fatal act of malpractice, we are prepared to help you recover fair and full compensation for the damages you’ve suffered.

When Medical Mistakes Cause Injuries

An emergency medical situation leaves very little room for error. Sadly, preventable mistakes occur leaving a patient facing additional bodily damage or even death. As a Portland emergency room error lawyer, Mr. Savage is prepared to investigate your claim and seek remuneration for injuries caused by:

  • Failure to correctly triage and prioritize patients
  • Failure to recognize the acute symptoms of a heart attack
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Misreading a medical chart or lab results
  • Medication errors

The mistakes made by doctors, nurses and other emergency room workers can lead to devastating results, making what was a manageable emergency into something far more serious. You and your family have been through enough. It is time to put your worries in our capable hands.
