A patient went to the emergency room with an acute problem. While his symptoms are alleviated, it later turned out that he had a serious health problem that should have been diagnosed.
Doctors in a trauma setting behave differently — in an effort to diagnose and treat life threatening conditions, they diagnose patients on a triage basis. This sometimes causes them to only address acute problems, and to miss potentially serious matters that should have been addressed. If a healthcare provider missed something during a emergency room visit, you may be able to take legal action. The best way to know for sure, however, is to contact the Stamford Emergency Room Error Attorney from the Law Offices of Piazza, Simmons & Grant, L.L.C., and schedule a free initial consultation.
