One in five people visits emergency rooms for medical treatment at least once a year in the U.S., with nearly 8 percent reporting two visits annually, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Government studies also have shown that, while the number of emergency room visits have increased, the total number of ERs have declined nationwide. That has led to significantly increased wait times for patients and longer work hours for emergency room medical staff. That’s a dangerous mix, which often leads to catastrophic medical errors.

The experienced ER attorneys at Ross Feller Casey have successfully litigated numerous emergency room lawsuits, including some of the largest of their kind in the region. Among the many are:

  • $26.3 million recovery for a man who suffered brain and spinal cord injuries after he was discharged from an emergency room too soon.
  • $20 million recovery for a man who suffered a brain injury due to a delay in diagnosing a stroke in an emergency room.
  • $6.4 million verdict for the family of a Philadelphia man who died after emergency room doctors misdiagnosed his heart condition like pneumonia. Read about the case

Emergency room lawsuits can stem from numerous factors, including:

  • Misdiagnoses
  • Failure to order proper tests
  • Understaffing
  • Inadequate training of staff, including admitting personnel
  • Sub-standard “triage” or patient tracking
  • Medication mistakes
  • Unsanitary conditions
  • Patient “dumping”
