Emergency Room Negligence

Pittsburgh ER Mistake Lawyer Helping Victims Of ER Negligence

In the emergency room, timing is everything. Patients often visit because something is acutely wrong. Tests must be run, a correct diagnosis made and lifesaving treatment begun. Sadly, if an error is made, it can have a profound effect — changing the life of a patient and his or her family forever.

At Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., we can help. We represent the victims of errors in the emergency room and their families in medical malpractice litigation. Our experienced attorneys use comprehensive knowledge of the legal system combined with medical advice from highly regarded health care providers to achieve the best possible results for clients.

We represent people who have been affected by many different types of emergency room errors, including misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of heart attack, stroke and cancer. Regardless of the challenges you face, we can help you understand your options and take effective action.

If you or someone you love has been affected by an emergency room error, taking action can hold the health care providers accountable for their negligence. A favorable settlement or verdict can provide you the resources you need to move forward to pay medical bills, compensate you for pain and suffering and compensate you for the cost of needed care.

Calculating Damages

If you prevail on your emergency room error claim, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your loss of income and loss of future earning capacity, as well as compensation for necessary medical care, pain and suffering. Spouses and children are often entitled to compensation as well if they have lost a loved one.

In medical malpractice cases, calculation of future economic damages is usually based on expert testimony. This testimony — given by highly respected professionals, including economists, life-care planners and vocational experts — helps put a value on the cost of care you need to live a normal life and for the loss of future earnings.
