Emergency Room Errors
Seek Justice with Our Proven Greenville Medical Malpractice Attorneys
The emergency room is naturally a hectic environment. Patients arrive with
various medical concerns—many of them quite urgent—as trained
medical personnel do their best to triage, prioritize, and best treat
them. Most of the time, emergency room nurses and doctors get these patients
properly treated and on the road back to health, but sometimes errors
can occur and patients are subjected to further harm.
Christian & Davis LLC, we believe that these kinds of errors are unacceptable. Medical personnel
in emergency rooms should have the training and resources to properly
treat every patient that comes through their doors. When an error happens
and a patient is hurt, legal action is called for. Our dedicated Greenville
medical malpractice lawyers work alongside a legal nurse consultant and bring uncommon knowledge and
diligence to the pursuit of
compensation in these kinds of cases.

Common emergency room errors include:
- Medication errors (wrong dosage, given to wrong patient, etc.)
- Delayed treatment
- Failure to order or interpret test results
- Patient "dumping" (mistreatment due to patient's insurance
