Types of Emergency Room Malpractice

Due to the high volume of patients in the emergency room, medical professionals sometimes make mistakes that harm patients.

Common types of emergency room negligence include:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Premature discharge
  • Failure to order necessary testing
  • Lab errors
  • Failure to monitor
  • Violations of the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA)

If you have suffered an injury from a medical mistake in the emergency room, you may be able to sue the hospital for medical malpractice.

Call the experienced attorneys at Baird Mandalas Brockstedt & Federico, LLC today to discuss your case.

Compensation Available for Emergency Room Malpractice 

Compensation for emergency room negligence can include both economic and non-economic damages.

Examples of economic damages are:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills
  • Lost Household Services

Non-economic damages include pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.

Although there is no cap for economic damages, Maryland law limits non-economic damages
